The paper describes the restoration of sight to the author's eye—which was afflicted with 'Gutta Serena'—following the repeated application of large blisters to the spine. The introductory letter relates that the author was persuaded to detail his cure publicly by the requests of 'the brethren assembled in our late Conference held in Leeds' (738).
