FROM A VETERAN.
As this is jubilee year it tends to make on 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 o 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 thai 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 ay that they have not benefitted ts usc."y Tyro old gentlemen, whose names then wqujd not like me to give you, ha.d bees, martyrs to Indigestion for' many yea rut They had tried all kinds of medicine withoot relief. One of them was so bad he could nse bear a glass of ale. Both were advised to uas the Syrup and both recovered, and were hale and hearty as men m the prime of life. , v A remarkable case is that of a house pain w named Jetteries, who lived at Penshurst, Ket.t. His business obliged him to expo v himself a great deal to wind and weather, an he was seized with rheumatism, and hi s joints soon swelled up with drogsy, arid were very stiff and painful Nothing that the doctors could do seemed to reach the seat of the trouble, ft so crippled h;m that he could dp hardly any work, and for the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had to give upflj nd take to hisbed. He had been afflicted m tbis sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and discouraged. Besides, fie had spent over £13 for what he called "doctor's stuff " without the least benefit. In the Spring he heard of what Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup has done for others and bought a 2s 6d 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 a 4s'6d poftLe, ar}d a&J was'gbing tjiat \vayl 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 : — " You ought not to be out here, man, itp be the death of you, after having being hi 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 fevjr days what the pcton could' not do m three years. I think shall get well now." He kep£ on with the syrup, and m thref weck3 he was at work again, and l^as had no return of the trouble for now nearly ten year*. Any medicine that can do this should be known all over the world.
