He thought the effects produced by sensual Appetites, could not...

I have passed the night in so much pain that I have not closed my eyes. It is with infinite regret therefore that I must relinquish your charming company for that of the Surgeon whom I have sent for to examine into the cause of this change.

I am very, very sorry indeed, and […] for having been the Cause of your pains in the [Night]; Why would you go?
