Declining health

The year 1810 marks a turning point in Priscilla’s health. Approaching the age of sixty she wrote:

‘My health is in a very enfeebled state but with thankfulness I add that as far as I can judge my intellectual powers are unimpaired. I have published Instinct Displayed and begun Travels in Africa. The employment of writing is profitable, not only with a view to what it yields but also an amusement, affording considerable relief from the cares of life.’ Journal 1810.
