Medicinal. Testimonials. Tuam Street, Christchurch, April 28, 1579. To Professor Guscott. SIU, I have been troubled with Livei Complain these last six years, many times not being able to attend to work. I have tried everything in the shape of patent medicines. I have been an outdoor patient in the Hospital ; I got at times temporary relief. I could not sleep on my left side; I kept rolling about backwards and forwards in bed. When I got up in the morning, I would rather be in bed but work I had to attend to. When I had eaten a light meal I found it always lodged in my stomach. Always costive, a great palpitation, pains across the chest, more particularly under the left breast, always a violent pain between the shoulders, felt just the same as if any one was pouring water down my back, feet always cold. Happened to get one of your bills when you came to St. Asaph street, which explained to me the symptoms I was laboring under. When I applied to you, you told me all my symptoms, and guaranteed me a perfect cure, which, I am happy to say, you have done through your herbal treatment. I should recommend those troubled with Liver Complaint ta place themselves under your treatment. I am, Sir, Truly thankful, William Manson. Colombo Street, April 21, 1879. To Professor Guscott. Sir,- - I have been troubled with Dysentery for the last three months, so much so that ! was perfectly' exhausted, the linings of my intestines peeled away in flakes. 1 tried every remedy that 1 could hear of, but to no purpose. Hearing that you were in Christchurch, and seeing Ihe many wonderful cures, was induced to place myself under your treatment, and I am happy to say in one week I am free from the diarrhoea, and gaining strength from your herbal treatment. I am, yours respectfully, Ellen Brown. I give you this testimonial for the henelil o others, as I know there are a great many others suffering from the same complaint in Christchurch. Borough Hotel, Manchester Street, Christchurch, April 21, 1879. To Professor Guscott. Sir,--I have been troubled with Sciataca and Rh.umatism since the commencement of the West Coast diggings in 1864, where I had to leave through medical advice, and went to Melbourne, and thence to Sydney, and then 1 thought I would try the tropical climate of Queensland, and only found temporary relief. I came to Christchnrch, and tried doctors of the best medical repute, and got no better. Thinking that it was useless to go any further I gave up all hopes of being restored ; 1 could scarcely walk, and staying at an old friend’s, he advised me to consult you, and I am happy to say I am in as perfect health as I was in 1864, when I crossed the ranges of the West Coast, and was only ten days under your treatment. John O’Brien. To Professor Guscott. Sir, —Having been troubled with asthma for the last seven years, on several occasions I have been propped up in bed, and many times I had to get up and walk to get a breath of air, and had become so bad that I was not able to ttend to my business ; in Get, I had become a burden to myself and the people with whom I was stopping. When I came to you you told me all my symptoms, which gave me confidence to place myself under your treatment, and, being a believer in herbs, and seeing the large assortment in your establishment, and also the references from other sufferers the same as myself, in looking back to the time of my suflering so long, and spending so much money without receiving any benefit from the treatment until I applied to you.—l remain, yours ever thankful, Donald Smith. Great King-street, Dunedin, May 30. To Professor Guscott. Sir, —I have to inform you that I am able to return home after your treatment of 4 weeks’ duration, having been troubled with dropsy this last 4 years. I have been tapped twice ; I have been under the doctors in Oamaru, and also in Dunedin, and never received any benefit from their treatment. When my sister called on you last April you told her if I would came to St. Kilda and stop with her you would treat me for a fortnight free of charge, and after that time, if I were no better, you would require no payment ; but I am happy to inform you that I feel as well as ever I felt, and free or dropsy, and can eat and sleep well. I trust that your days may be long in Dunedin. You may be assured that I will speak of the cure you have effected in me on my return home, as 1 leave my sistei to-morrow. —I remain yours ever grateful, Mrs. Isabella Fraser. St. Kilda, June 10, 1878. Manchester Street, Christchurch, April 29th, 1879. To Professor Guscott, Sir, —I have been troubled with Neuralgia for a length of time, and have suffered the most excruciating pains; tried e' erything that 1 could hear of, I then saw your testimonials in the papers, and the “ Star.” I was advised to give you a trial, but I have this to say that 1 am perfectly free from pain. I can eat and sleep well, and am not disturbed at nights or meal times as I have been for a length of time. I have told seveial the pain I suffered, and the wonderful relief I have had, and I would advise anyone troubled with Neuralgia to apply to you, as they can depend on a perfect cure. Yours ever grateful, H. B. Williams, Tuam street, Christchurch. To Professor Guscott, Sir, —Having for the last four years suffered from bad eyes, bffing totally blind in one, and from using a solution of nitrate of silver as a lotion, which had penetrated my whole system, causing me the most acute pains, which, added m rheumatism, prevented my sleeping at night, and rendered my life absolutely burdensome to me, I have consulted and been treated by doctors in different parts of Canterbury, as also in the Christchurch Hospital, but without obtaining the slightest relief. Determined to leave no stone unturned while the smallest chance remained of an abatement of my sufferings, 1 applied to you immediately I heard of your arrival, and the cure which you have effected would seem to many incredible, but as I am still here a living pro«f of the success of your treatment, as can only be testified by hundreds in Christchurch, who knowing what I was like for so long up to a week ago, look with astonishment at the change which you have wrought. Wishing you many years of happiness and prosperity in pursuing your useful career, I am, dear Sir, yours respectfully, Patrick Burns. Sexton’s Allenton House, St. Asaph-street, Christchurch,
