Partridge egg-sized tumor removed from Presgraves’ mouth

Luray-Main St old

January 3, 1889 — Mr. John H. Presgraves, of this county, has for the past 18 months had forming in his mouth a fungus tumor.

It had grown to about twice the size of a partridge egg, and while not painful, occasioned him considerable trouble and inconvenience.

On last Thursday evening by a simple operation he had it removed, and we are glad to state that he is now doing well.
