Summary, etc.:
On July 1, 1893, President Grover Cleveland boarded a friend's yacht, sailed into the waters of Long Island Sound, and disappeared from sight for five days. This is the story of a brazen political cover-up regarding a secret surgical procedure on Cleveland to remove a cancerous tumor from his mouth, along with much of his upper jaw. This is the first full account ever published.
