I'm not sure what hic refers to here. It would seem to me either to refer to valetudinem, in which case it would be feminine, or 'these things' (i.e. all of ) but then then it would be a neuter plural. Qua illa temperantia, qua patientia, qua etiam constantia novissimam valetudinem tulit!  Medicis obsequebatur, sororem patrem adhortabatur ipsamque se destitutam corporis viribus vigore animi sustinebat.  Duravit hic illi usque ad extremum, nec aut spatio valetudinis aut metu mortis infractus est, quo plures gravioresque nobis causas relinqueret et desiderii et doloris. (Pliny 5.16) Unrelated: what's the standard font here at Latin Dicussion? Everytime I copy and paste the fonts get weird and I don't know what family/ size to revert them to.
