Λ.Γ. 1200.] DEATH OF S.VINT numi. J 97 despairing * f his health, went to this holy bishop :πιΊ obtained bis promise to bless her son. The bishop accordingly laid his hands on the diseased part, blessed him, mid sent him away; after which the tumour was so suddenly assuaged, that from that hour it neither troubled the boy, nor diil the mother see anything further of it. At another time it happened that this same woman's other son was hopelessly suffering from jaundice ; but she, remembering her former refuge, brought him also before the holy bishop to he blessed by him, and this one too, after receiving his blessing, was restored to his former state of health within three days' time. liow Saint /high departed this life. At the end of the fourteenth year of his episcopacy, the holy bishop Hugh, on his return to England from the principal house of the Carthusian order, where he had been to visit the prior and brothers of that house, at their longexpressed desire, was taken seriously ill of the quartan ague, at the old Temple, in the city of Loudon. There king John came to see him ; but before he left him he confirmed bis will, at the exhortation of the man of God, and promised in the Lord that he would for the future ratify the. reasonable testaments of prelates. Although his sickness daily gained ground, he would not at any one's recommendation lay aside, even for a short time, the hair-cloth garment which he always wore ; but being the more determined as his death approached to abide by the rigorous rules of the Carthusian order, he, at the call of God, departed happily from this life to him. When this holy man's body was being carried by the citizens of London to be buried at Lincoln, a wonderful circumstance occurred ; for the tapers which had been lighted before the body on leaving London, burnt continually during four days' journey, so that they Avere not at any time without the light of one of the tapers, although the weather was often unusually bad, on account of the wind and rain ; from this circumstance there is no doubt but that the Lord had prepared eternal light for his soul, since, out of regard for bis body, he did not permit the temporal light to be extinguished. This servant of God, Hugh, bishop of Lincoln, died in the year of the incarnate Word lL'OO, on the 17th of November.
