More About The President Is a Sick Man by Matthew Algeo
 
 
 
Overview
An extraordinary yet almost unknown chapter in American history is revealed in this extensively researched expose. On July 1, 1893, President Grover Cleveland boarded a friend s yacht and was not heard from for five days. During that time, a team of doctors removed a cancerous tumor from the president s palate along with much of his upper jaw. When an enterprising reporter named E. J. Edwards exposed the secret operation, Cleveland denied it and Edwards was consequently dismissed as a disgrace to journalism. Twenty-four years later, one of the president s doctors finally revealed the incredible truth, but many Americans simply would not believe it. After all, Grover Cleveland s political career was built upon honesty his most memorable quote was Tell the truth so it was nearly impossible to believe he was involved in such a brazen cover-up. This is the first full account of the disappearance of Grover Cleveland during that summer more than a century ago."
