Gladstone's eye was successfully operated upon for cataract. He took no anaesthetic, and was conscious during the time.

She had driven to Chelmsford upon a shopping expedition with her step-daughter. She had several calls to make in the neighborhood of the town, and was not likely to return until dinner-time.
