Excerpt from The Chicago Medical Examiner, 1869, Vol. 10: A Monthly Journal Devoted to the Educational, Scientific, and Practical Interests of the Medical Profession

An incision was first made in the most dependent part of the tumor, in the anterior lip of the uterus, which extended trans versely from one side of the pelvis to the other, and must have been over three inches long; another, commencing in the centre of this, was extended up the posterior surface of the tumor, in the cavity of the uterus, as far as I could guide the scissors by the finger, with the hand partly introduced into the vagina. This last incision must have been more than three inches long also. The substance cut through was at least a quarter of an inch thick. The two incisions formed a L-shaped opening into the cyst containing the tumor. The freedom with which I could separate the walls of the cyst from the tumor encouraged me to attempt the removal of the whole mass, instead of a part of it. For this purpose, I introduced my left hand into the vagina, and my fingers high up into the cyst; and after some exertion, had the satisfaction to break up the adhesions of the tumor to its envelope over much of its circumference, and well up towards the upper end.
