Two questions

Posted by Natty on May 08, 2004

1. What is the meaning of "I never could see myself that much was the matter with me" in the phrase:

Many years ago, when I was a young man, I was taken very ill - I never could see myself that much was the matter with me, except that I had a beastly cold.

2. What is the meaning of the "-fied" suffix in:

And twice a day I should go down in a Bath chair to the Colonnade to drink the waters... "Drinking the waters" sounded fashionable and Queen Anne-fied, and I thought I should like them.

Thanks a lot!
