The Medical Faculty Especially
MISS SUSAN GRISHAM
is now 21 years of age 5 feet
3 inches high enjoys good health, and with the exception of the
peculiarity of the lower extremities, of which the above cut
gives an accurate likeness, presents a comely appearance, being
intelligent, modest and agreeable. The body and down to
the knee is naturally proportioned. The foot measures in
length 15 inches, around over the instep 20 inches, around over
the toes 31 inches.
The great toe measures 6 1-2
inches around. The weight of the feet alone, is 60 pounds,
while her whole weight is 155 pounds. She wears neither
shoes nor stockings, but can walk about the house, up and down
stairs, without assistance. Miss Grisham was born with the
peculiarity, which grew in proportion with the rest of her body
until about two years since, when having attained her growth
otherwise, the feet ceased growing with the body. It is
impossible to account for this wonderful freak of nature, for
such it is.
Many inducements from our most
expert managers have from childhood applied for her, but not
until lately through the persuasion of some of our distinguished
physicians, could she be induced to come before the public.
She is attended by a lady who takes pains to accommodates the
visitors by a thorough explanation.
