This is both a research project and an experiment in creating a diary in the style of a Tudor-era woman. Research notes are usually found here, and my primary journal is here.

On ys day, I received of ye surgeon hys device, et it is a mask yt assists me to breathe. Et it is passing strange, but if it lets me sleep, I shall have no complaint of it. Et I am euer pleased yt this surgeon hath provided the help he swore he could provide, et hath done so quickly, unlike ye other grete learned men I had consulted through these many years. Et if this mask shall help me, then I shall swear off all ye other philosephers of medicine et cleave vnto ys one surgeon et hys helpers.
