to_o the_o depravation_n of_o the_o air_n by_o subterraneal_a steam_n and_o their_o effect_n if_o this_o be_v due_o consider_v the_o historical_a observation_n will_v appear_v not_o to_o overthrow_v

second_o member_n it_o may_v be_v say_v that_o since_o in_o the_o east_n indies_n and_o the_o other_o country_n i_o have_v name_v as_o privilege_v from_o this_o rage_a disease_n it_o be_v not_o observe_v to_o break_v out_o as_o it_o can_v be_v say_v that_o subterraneal_a effluvia_fw-la do_v in_o those_o country_n promote_v the_o propagation_n of_o it_o so_o it_o can_v be_v prove_v that_o they_o can_v not_o do_v it_o incase_o the_o plague_n be_v begin_v by_o other_o cause_n but_o in_o regard_n i_o think_v it_o not_o improbable_a that_o sometime_o the_o plague_n be_v not_o only_o foment_v but_o begin_v by_o noxious_a expiration_n of_o the_o terrestrial_a globe_n i_o shall_v add_v that_o this_o supposition_n though_o i_o confess_v it_o be_v somewhat_o disfavour_v by_o some_o of_o the_o late_o mention_v observation_n yet_o be_v not_o absolute_o inconsistent_a with_o they_o for_o first_o it_o may_v be_v say_v that_o some_o of_o the_o country_n i_o speak_v of_o may_v be_v destitute_a of_o those_o noxious_a mineral_n to_o which_o we_o impute_v some_o plague_n it_o hold_v true_a in_o mineral_n as_o well_o as_o in_o plant_n non_fw-la omnis_fw-la fert_fw-la omne_fw-la

the_o same_o tract_n of_o land_n i_o can_v but_o here_o take_v notice_n that_o though_o sulphur_n be_v in_o many_o country_n usual_o find_v and_o that_o in_o plenty_n where_o there_o be_v other_o metalline_a vein_n insomuch_o that_o chemist_n make_v it_o one_o of_o the_o three_o principle_n of_o all_o metal_n yet_o in_o the_o mine_n of_o england_n more_o strict_o so_o call_v i_o do_v not_o remember_v i_o ever_o meet_v with_o so_o much_o as_o a_o ounce_n of_o native_a sulphur_n and_o i_o can_v not_o find_v by_o divers_a mineralist_n of_o who_o i_o purposely_o ask_v the_o question_n that_o they_o have_v meet_v with_o any_o among_o the_o various_a mine_n they_o have_v frequent_v it_o may_v also_o happen_v that_o there_o may_v be_v hurtful_a mineral_n in_o a_o country_n and_o yet_o not_o capable_a of_o often_o produce_v or_o promote_a pestilence_n there_o even_o upon_o moderate_a earthquake_n for_o it_o be_v possible_a that_o these_o orpimental_a or_o other_o noxious_a mineral_n may_v have_v their_o bed_n or_o vein_n lie_v so_o deep_a in_o the_o earth_n that_o they_o be_v not_o ordinary_o able_a to_o send_v up_o effluvia_fw-la strong_a and_o copious_a enough_o to_o make_v
of_o mention_v this_o last_o disease_n that_o he_o but_o borrow_v his_o encomium_n of_o mercury_n from_o begninus_n but_o however_o what_o have_v be_v relate_v have_v invite_v i_o to_o consider_v

upon_o the_o bye_n proposition_n iii_o it_o be_v likely_a that_o divers_a epidemical_a disease_n be_v in_o great_a part_n produce_v by_o subterraneal_a effluvia_fw-la i_o be_o very_a well_o aware_a that_o divers_a disease_n that_o extraordinary_o invade_v great_a number_n of_o people_n at_o the_o same_o time_n and_o be_v therefore_o by_o the_o greek_n call_v epidemical_a may_v be_v rational_o refer_v to_o manifest_a intemperateness_n of_o the_o air_n in_o point_n of_o heat_n cold_a moisture_n or_o some_o other_o obvious_a quality_n and_o therefore_o the_o proposition_n speak_v but_o of_o some_o epidemical_a disease_n and_o impute_v those_o it_o speak_v of_o to_o subterraneal_a effluvia_fw-la not_o as_o total_a but_o as_o partial_a and_o sometime_o as_o principal_a agent_n in_o the_o production_n of_o they_o in_o favour_n of_o the_o propose_a conjecture_n thus_o explain_v i_o shall_v offer_v two_o thing_n to_o consideration_n i._o and_o first_o it_o seem_v not_o very_o improbable_a that_o divers_a of_o those_o morbific_a excess_n especial_o if_o they_o be_v sudden_a that_o be_v observe_v in_o the_o air_n may_v proceed_v from_o the_o unusual_o copious_a ascent_n of_o hurtful_a exhalation_n that_o mingle_v with_o the_o air_n and_o diffuse_v themselves_o through_o it_o we_o be_v great_a stranger_n than_o we_o common_o take_v notice_n of_o to_o the_o subterraneat_a part_n of_o the_o globe_n we_o inhabit_v and_o if_o i_o have_v leisure_n and_o think_v it_o necessary_a i_o can_v show_v that_o there_o be_v a_o great_a many_o odd_a and_o surprise_v thing_n to_o be_v meet_v with_o in_o the_o structure_n and_o disposition_n even_o of_o those_o part_n of_o the_o earth_n that_o lie_v but_o a_o little_a way_n beneath_o the_o surface_n of_o it_o and_o partly_o have_v be_v and_o partly_o may_v easy_o enough_o be_v actual_o penetrate_v by_o the_o industrious_a labour_n of_o man_n and_o as_o for_o the_o deep_a subterraneal_a region_n we_o be_v so_o much_o more_o unacquainted_a with_o they_o that_o we_o be_v scarce_o fit_a so_o much_o as_o to_o conjecture_v how_o far_o they_o extend_v or_o what_o kind_n of_o material_n they_o contain_v and_o what_o be_v the_o gross_a and_o if_o i_o may_v so_o speak_v the_o mechanical_a fabric_n of_o the_o great_a mass_n whether_o solid_a or_o fluid_a they_o consist_v of_o and_o lest_o of_o all_o can_v we_o determine_v what_o motion_n whether_o periodical_a or_o other_o these_o mass_n or_o other_o portion_n of_o deep_o lodge_v matter_n may_v have_v on_o such_o ground_n as_o these_o i_o conceive_v it_z possible_a that_o among_o the_o many_o and_o various_a effluviate_a body_n that_o the_o terrestrial_a globe_n may_v conceal_v in_o its_o bowel_n there_o may_v be_v some_o who_o reek_n ascend_v plentiful_o into_o the_o air_n may_v occasion_v in_o it_o a_o excess_n of_o heat_n cold_a moisture_n thickness_n or_o some_o other_o manifest_a quality_n so_o that_o sometime_o not_o to_o say_v many_o time_n even_o those_o manifest_a intemperateness_n of_o the_o air_n to_o which_o a_o epidemical_a disease_n be_v wont_a to_o be_v whole_o impute_v though_o perhaps_o not_o very_o just_o may_v in_o part_n proceed_v from_o subterraneal_a body_n for_o i_o elsewhere_o show_v that_o these_o by_o their_o conflict_n or_o mutual_a action_n on_o one_o another_o may_v excite_v great_a and_o sudden_a heat_n and_o on_o that_o account_n send_v up_o such_o copious_a steam_n into_o the_o atmosphere_n as_o may_v produce_v there_o sudden_a and_o excessive_a heat_n lightning_n thunder_n etc._n etc._n and_o i_o shall_v now_o add_v what_o perhaps_o will_v appear_v somewhat_o strange_a that_o i_o think_v sudden_a and_o unseasonable_a refrigeration_n of_o the_o air_n may_v proceed_v from_o the_o action_n of_o subterraneal_a body_n upon_o one_o another_o for_o trial_n purposely_o make_v have_v inform_v i_o that_o there_o be_v certain_a mineral_n whereof_o some_o may_v be_v employ_v in_o their_o crude_a simplicity_n and_o the_o other_o require_v but_o a_o slight_a preparation_n such_o as_o it_o may_v have_v in_o the_o bowel_n of_o the_o earth_n which_o mineral_n be_v put_v together_o will_v produce_v by_o their_o reaction_n a_o intense_a degree_n of_o cold_a not_o only_o as_o to_o sense_n but_o when_o examine_v by_o a_o seal_a weatherglass_n the_o change_n of_o the_o air_n that_o produce_v epidemical_a disease_n be_v sometime_o so_o great_a and_o sudden_a that_o they_o can_v in_o my_o opinion_n with_o probability_n be_v impute_v to_o the_o action_n of_o the_o sun_n or_o the_o moon_n which_o be_v cause_n that_o act_n in_o too_o general_a and_o too_o uniform_a a_o way_n to_o have_v those_o particular_a and_o anomalous_a effect_n attribute_v to_o they_o as_o probable_o as_o they_o may_v be_v to_o subterraneal_a body_n that_o often_o act_v with_o more_o suddenness_n and_o impetuosity_n and_o without_o any_o regularity_n at_o least_o that_o be_v know_v to_o we_o the_o

and_o inculcate_v that_o the_o sun_n be_v in_o the_o same_o sign_n at_o the_o same_o time_n of_o the_o year_n it_o do_v not_o appear_v how_o he_o shall_v produce_v so_o great_a a_o disparity_n of_o
