Excerpt from The Confessions of Rousseau, Vol. 4 The extraordinary degree of strength that a transient effervescence had given me to quit the Hermitage left me the moment I was out of it, I was scarcely established in my new habitation before I frequently suffered from retentions, which were accompanied by a new complaint - that of a rupture, from which I had for some time, without knowing what it was, felt great inconvenience. I soon was reduced to the most cruel state. The physician Thierry, my old friend, came to see me, and made me acquainted with my situation. The sight of the surgical instruments and all the apparatus of the infirmities of years made me severely feel that when the body is no longer young the heart is not so with impunity. The fine season did not restore me, and I passed the whole year 1758 in a state of languor which made me think I was almost at the end of my career.
