An account of the supposedly miraculous cure of Marie Maillard (1680-1731), a French Huguenot refugee in London. Her instantaneous recovery from a lifelong debilitating illness was said to take place as she was reading the Bible on Sunday, 26th November, 1693. The event precipitated a popular debate on the nature of miracles. Maillard was so famous that she was summoned to the lord Mayor of London and various Bishops and Queen Mary sent four doctors to investigate. A discourse on miracles by Dr. James Welwood is appended.
