In 1824 in the young capital city of Washington, DC, Ann Mattingly, widowed sister of the city's mayor, was miraculously cured of cancer. The Mattingly miracle purportedly came through the intervention of a German cleric, Prince Alexander Hohenlohe. This book brings to light an early episode in the battle between faith and reason in the US.
