Mr. Pressland

Northampton Mercury, 1st July 1809


As a further Proof of Mr. Pressland’s superior Method of treating CANCERS, I submit my Case to the Public.—About four Years ago I perceived a hard Knot in my Breast, and I applied to three Gentlemen of the Faculty; they all told me it was a Cancer, and advised me to have it taken out; not willing to comply, the Surgeon who regularly attends our Family advised me to apply to a Mr. Pressland, of Rushden, near Higham Ferrers. I made Application immediately, and now I have the Happiness to say that I am perfectly cured. Mr. Pressland has likewise cured a Nephew of mine of a Scroulous Ulcerated Arm, that was given over by the Faculty for Amputation. And what is most extraordinary, both Cures were performed without any Pain.     Mary Taylor.
