Yesterday’s answer:
A.      Stupid
The following from Warren Foote’s journal of March 17, 1842:
Saturday morning, when the disease seemed to settle on me for a long spell of sickness. It was the inflammation on my lungs. I now became very stupid. . .
Then on January 12, 1845 Warren Foote describes his wife sickness:
12th. My wife and I have both been sick with a cold the past week. She is smart again.
