Spead vs. Tomlinson
The above is the title of a lawsuit brought in the Superior Court at Concord, N. H. In what we here say, we take our facts from the daily newspapers reporting this case, rather than from private sources. According to the newspaper accounts a suit was brought by Mrs. Jennie A. Spead against Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson, First Reader of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Concord, N. H., who is also a Christian Science practitioner, to recover six thousand dollars damages alleged to have been sustained by her through the treatment of Mr. Tomlinson.
The Concord Daily Patriot thus briefly sets forth the plaintiff's claim:—
"The plaintiff claims that in November, 1899, she consulted the defendant when she was suffering a severe pain from appendicitis; that the defendant professed to her that he could cure disease and that he could save her harmless from the effect of pain from which she might be suffering; that it was his duty to use reasonable skill and care in the treatment of the disease and the relief and removal of pain; and the defendant did not use reasonable skill and care, and that the plaintiff thereby suffered damage."
