The Australian-born Anglican faith healer made a triumphant debut in America in 1919; his Society of Emmanuel in England would treat patients with both medicine and prayer. (HIckson was also evidently able to distinguish possession by a demon's characteristic smell.) This pamphlet was no doubt published by Gorham to capitalize on and promote Hickson's popular American appearances.
