Found Chapter 5 on the "Miracles of Healing in History" an interesting read. He accepts many accounts as being genuine;

Another curious healing in the XVII century was byt he King's touch, the belief that a sovereign could heal scrofula by touching the diseased. The efficacy of the touch of the king to cure this particular disease is historically fully authenticated. On Easter Sunday, 1686, Louis XIV touched 1600 persons, saying, "The king touches you; God cures you." Charles II touched almost 100,000 persons; James in one of his journeys touched 800 persons.

Was surprised to read that!
