Mr John Williams, contractor and builder, Prescot, sustained a rather severe injury to his right leg, some two or three weeks ago, by a fall at a building which he is erecting at Widnes.

Inflammation set in afterwards and threatened until a day or two ago to result very seriously.

Under the treatment of Dr Morris and his assistant Mr Green, however, he is now better, the inflammation having been subdued and the alarming symptoms been consequently reduced.
