Mrs. George Mann Attacked With Acid With A Masked Woman – Ohio 1909

FULL TEXT: Bellefontame, O., Dec. 2. – Mrs. George Mann answered a ring at her door last night and met a masked woman who threw vitriol into her face exclaiming:

“I’ll burn your eyes out.”

The woman then fled.

Mrs. Mann’s eyes were saved by physicians but she will be disfigured by deep burns. Her husband told the police that he had received letters threatening that he would one day go home and find his wife dead.
