The physician informed His Highness: The Crown Prince began to shiver again in the late morning on the 23rd. Even with several layers of leather clothes, I could not keep him from curling up and shivering. Prolonged high fever made him deranged, but he regained stability after taking an herb pill. But his fever lingered and kept him up all night. He suffered from extreme thirst despite the offering of clean water, and violent, continuous coughs prevented him from even lying comfortably.

Cloudy between 5 and 9 in the morning. Between 7 and 9 at night, Mars cross the Jeoksiseong, or the corpse star. Between 3 and 5 in the morning, a white cloud billowed straight up like smoke in the southwest and reached up through the clouds. It was ten leaves high and one cheok wide, and it slowly moved toward the moon and disappeared after a long while. The Crown Prince passed away at exactly noon at the Changgyeonggung Palace Hwanggyeongdang Hall.
