alarm of the plague


October 14

on Monday

A sick woman was on her way to La Scala, the attendants helping and supporting her by the arms, but when she got as far as the hospital of the Porcellana,(1) she fell dead; so that one may say that the plague is exceedingly serious.

(1) This hospital was in the Via della Scala, at the corner of the Via della Porcellana.
