Title
[Document, 1778 June 26]
Abstract
Schaack has undergone severe misfortunes. A voyage to Europe may well be postponed. "My belief arises from the following facts:.../His brother operated on the eyes of a blind Frenchman/He opened the one which had been blind fourteen years. The man recovered the sight of that eye and requested the like operation on the other, but my brother declined it on account of the connection or sympathy which he said subsisted between the two."
