Those suffering from that distressing complaint—bronchitis—are the onl}’ ones that can form any idea of it. However, to make the matter short, I have had the best advice to be obtained, both here and in Cornwall, England, without any beneficial result. When at about the lowest ebb, a friend called ray attention to Mr Wallis’ advertisement in the Star. I called on that gentleman, stated my case: His answer was—“ I can’t cure you, but can do you a world of good.” He attended me for a week ; the result astounded me ; within two days he gave me more relief than all the drugs I have taken during half a life-time. Although Mr Wallis told me he couldn’t cure jne, yet I have been at work three months in splendid health, and still feel first rate. The only apology I can offer you,' is that the hundreds suffering from the same complaint may get relief as I did.—Yours, etc., ■ Johnson Thomas. Aldred street, Christchurch. (Copy.) Christchurch, Feb. 14th, 1881. To S. Wallis, Esq., Hydropathist. Sir, —I write the following hoping you will publish it for the benefit of the public. Some four years ago my wife was taken suddenly ill. I called in a doctor, who at once pronounced it rheumatic fever. He attended her for a short time, and then gave up the case. What to do I did not know. My wife was screaming with pain, which with lightning rapidity passed from one part of the body to another, and the doctor having left us to shift for ourselves. In our last extremity, when death seemed inevitable, Mr Denham, coach builder, advised me to apply to you ; and if ever a human being was snatched from the jaws of death, my wife was on that occasion. Although you only took a fortnight to cure her, .you thoroughly eradicated the disease, root and branch. I remain, yours ever obliged, John Herbert, Master Butcher. South Town Belt, Christchurch. (Copy.) Oxford Terrace, Christchurch, March 7th, 1881, To Mr Wallis, Hydropathist. Dear Sir, —I send you the following to make any use of you like. Some years ago Mrs Sherlock was under the care of an eminent M.D., suffering from a large fluid tumour internally. Under his care she gradually grew worse, and was at last reduced to a mere skeleton. In this stage three of the leading doctors in Christchurch held a consultation, finally deciding that nothing could be done for her. In this critical state I placed her under your care, when, to the astonishment of every one that knew her (the doctor included), in two months you completely cured her ; and ever since, lam happy to say, she has enjoyed the best of health. Any person desiring further information can either apply to Mrs Sherlock, Durham street, or at my photographic rooms, Oxford terrace. I have the honor to remain, Yours truly, Wm. Sherlock, Photographer. (Copy.) Strickland street, Cashel street East, Christchurch. March Ist. To Mr Wallis, Water Doctor. Sir, —I had intended long ago to write and inform you that the wonderful cure you effected for me five years since was a permanent one, for since that time I have not lost a day’s work through ill health. You will remember how for months I had gone almost daily to a surgeon with the usual result (viz., getting worse), the pain in my head so severe as to almost drive me out of my mind. As a last resource I was just about going to the hospital, when I heard of you ; fortunately for me I did not go to that institution, for at that time a young man suffering from the same complaint was admitted there. A seton was put in at the back of the neck. That, with other so called medical treatment, very soon affected his eyesight, so much so that when I saw him he was unable to distinguish one color from another. In conclusion, sir, I would say facts are stubborn things. Six weeks under your care turned me out a healthy man—about the same time turned the other young fellow out a corpse. Wishing you every success, I remain, John Wilson, 820 a Carpenter. Conveyances. ECOOKSON, Wills Street, runs the , MATT.
