OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. ' We can conscientiously recommed those 5 suffering from deafness or other ailments that Dr. Grant has made a special study , of, to pay him a visit, when, if curable ! patients, they may certainly expect relief. An instance came under our notice on , Thursday, in the case of a man named , Charles Swanson, who had been very - deaf for three years, but, after ten days’ » treatment, can now hear perfectly even 5 the lowest whisper. The’cure is a rather remarkable one, as he had been under the care of many medical men, but has re- ( ceived no benefit whatever from their " treatment —New Zealander, Dec. 27,1879. j Mr. Earnest D‘Egville Michau called at s our office yesterday, and stated that he i had been blind with the right eye all his lifetime. Hearing about Dr. Grant, the oculist, who is now on a visit to this city, r he determined to give him a trial. He i had only been under Dr. Grant’s treat--1 rnent ten or eleven days when he found ; that he could see large objects at some dis- [ tance. Mr. Michau states that he had ’ been under the treatment of some of the : best medical men at home, but had not ; received the least benefit. We are at ’ all times chary of accepting details of . “ Wonderful cures,” but the. young man who called at our office appearei to be telling the truth, and was exceedingly grateful to Dr. Gant for the relief which he has already experienced. —New Zealand Times, Dec. 25, 1879. Dr. Grant is also SPECIALIST in the DISEASES of WOMEN and CHILDREN. Dr. Grant has recently effected a very > remarkable cure in the cage of Mrs. D. Evans, of Kumara, who has been under his treatment for deafness since Feb. 14, last. Mrs. Evans has been deaf in both ears for a very long period—no less than thirty years—her affliction having been , caused by a fever, from which she suffered | severely. Since that time she has been , almost totally deaf, for she could only hear the the loudest sounds. Since she has been under Dr. Grant’s treatment her hearing has gradually improved, so that now she can hear plainly conversation in an ordinary tone of voice. She will return in a few days to Kumara perfectly well, and in possession of the full faculty of which she has been so long deprived.— West Coast Times, March 10, 1880. ; _ ! One of the employees in the Public Works office here has sent us the following testimonial to the skill of Dr. Grant. He says “I wish to let you know that Dr. Grant has greatly improved the hearing of one of my ears, the membrane of which was injured some six years ago. I may add that two surgeons, whom I consulted a short time ago, considered the case incurable. ” Dr. Grant has also been very successful in several difficult cases of disease of the eye. —Hokitika Times, March 23, 1880., There are amongst Dr. Grant’s successful eye cases at Hokitika, a young-lady;
