AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM A VETERAN. As this is jubilee year it tends to make one look back and think of the flight of time, and m this way I am reminded that I am one of the veterans m the sale of your valuable and and successful medicine. I have sold it m England and many parts of Scotland. Well do I remember the first circular you sent out some nine or ten years ag». You had come to England from America to introduce Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I was struck by a paragraph m which you used these words : — " Being a stranger m a strange land, I do not wish the people to feel that I want to. take the least advantage over them. I feel that I have a remedy that will cure disease, and I have so much confidence m it that I authorise my agents to refund the money if people'should say that they have not benefitted by its use." I felt at once that you would never say that unless the medicine had merit, and I applied for the agency, a step which I now look back upon with pride and satisfaction. Ever since that time I have found it far the best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia I have met with, and I have sold thousands of bottles. It has never failed m any case where there were any of the following symptoms : — Nervous or sick headache, sourness of the stomach, rising of the food after eating, a sense of heaviness and fulness, dizziness bad breath, slime and mucus on the gums and teeth, constipation, and yellowness of the eyes and skin, dull and sleepy sensations, ringing m the ears, heartburn, loss of appetite, and, m short, wherever there are signs that the system is clogged, and the blood is out of order. Upon repeated inquiries, covering a great variety of ailments, my customers have always answered, "lam better," or "I«m perfectly well." What I have seldom or never seen before m the case of any medicine is that people tell each other of its virtues, and those who have been been cured say to the suffering : " Go and get Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, it will make you well." Out of the hundreds of cures I will name one or two tint happen to come into my mind. Two old gentlemen, whose names they would not like me to give you, had been martyrs to Indigestion for many years. They had tried all kinds of medicine without relief. One of them was so bad he could not bear a glass of ale. Both were advised to use the Syrup and both recovered, and were as hale and hearty as men m the prime of Jife. A remarkable case is that of a house painter named Jerteries, who lived at Pensliurst, m Kent. His business oblfged him to expose himself a great deal to wind and weather, and he was seized wi'h rheumatism, and his joints soon swelled up with dropsy, and were very stiff and painful. Nothing that the doctors could do seemed to reach the seat, of the trouble. It so crippled him that he could do hardly any work, and tor the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had te give up and take to his bed. He had been. afflicted m this sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and discouraged. Besides, he had spent over £13 for what he called " doctor's stuft " without ths least benefit. In the Spring he heard of what Mother Seigels Curative Syrup has done for others and bought a 2s 6i bottle of me. In a few days he sent me word he was much better— before he had finished the bottle. He then sent to me for a4s 6d bottle, and as I was going that way I carried it down to him myself. On getting to his house what was my astonishment and surprise to find him weeding an onion bed. I could hardly believe my own eyes, and said ; — 11 You ought not to be out here, man, it may be the death of you, after having being laid up all winter with rheumatism and dropsy." His reply was : " There is no danger, The weather is fine, and Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup has done for me m a few days what the doctors could not do m three years. I think I shall get well now." He kept on with the syrup, and m three i weeks he was at work again, and has had no return of the trouble for now nearly ten years. | Any medicine that can do this should be ' known all over the world. Yours faithfully, (Signed) Rupert Graham. Of Graham & Son.
