Remarks on the history and philosophy but particularly on the medical efficacy of electricity in the cure of nervous and chronic disorders ; and in various local affections, as blindness, deafness, &c. illustrated with many new and striking cases: together with conversations on galvanism, as an efficient substitute for mercurial remedies, in bilious and stomach complaints. ... / By M.

John v.6. Wilt thou be made whole? Or, the virtues and efficacy of the water of Glastonbury in the county of Somerset. Illustrated in above twenty remarkable cases faithfully described, of Persons who by the Use of that Water have been cured of Disorders of the most obstinate and deplorable Kinds: Such as the Asthma, Rheumatism, Dropsy, King's Evil, Deafness, Blindness, Wens, Cancers, Ulcers, Old Swellings, Leprosy, &c. These Cases, being but a few out of a vast Number and Variety that may be collected, are certain Facts, and fairly proved, either by the Affidavits and Hand Writing or Marks of the Persons cured, taken in the Presence of sensible honest People, who knew them and their Cases both before and after their Cure; or by the Attestations of the Ministers and Church-Wardens of their respective Parishes; or by credible and impartial Witnesses, living in Parts too remote from Glastonbury, to have any Connexion with the private Interests of that Place, that should in any Sense weaken the Sufficiency of their Testimony. To which is prefixed a Letter of an ingenious and sensible Clergyman, taken from the Sherbourn and Yeovil Mercury of the 29th of April last. Collected by an inhabitant of Bath.
