Such persons have their lucid intervals, have usually, in such intervals at least, a competent use of reason, and crimes committed by them in these intervals are of the same nature, and subject to the same punishment, as if they had no such deficiency. This accidental dementia, whether temporary of permanent, is either the more dangerous and pernicious, called furor or mania, which commonly arises from choler, or the violent inflammation of the blood and spirits, which do not only take away the use of reason, but also super-adds to the unhappy state of the patient rage, fury, and tempestuous violence; or else is it such as only takes away the use and exercise of reason, leaving the person otherwise rarely noxious, such as in a deep delirium stupor, the memory quite lost, the phantasy quite broken, or extremely disordered.
