On 23 September 1777, J.N. Arrachart performed an operation for a cataract on his 76 year old father. This was popularized, at least in literary circles, by a poem written by Mr Alix, lawyer to parliament, and published in the Journal de Paris (12 November 1777). However, this scarce print appears to be a separate publication.
