|Title||Paper, 'Account of the worm which came out of his wife's ear which worm he presented to the Royall Society' by John Rogers|
|Description||Rogers recounts a story of his wife suffering from extremely severe headaches, initially in her face and eye and eventually in her right ear. Rogers attempted applying a hot roasted garlic clove to her ear, and then inserted a mixture of various hot oils into her ear. A worm then crawled out, which Rogers preserved in a sort of spirit. The worm was presented to the Society by Peter Le Neve in May 1722.|
Communicated by Peter Le Neve. Read to the Royal Society on 7 June 1722.
