FROM. A VETEUAB, === As this is jubilee year it tends to make on look back and think of the flight of time, and in this way I am reminded that I am one of the veterans in the sale of your valuable and and successful medicine. I have sold it in 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 patag^raph in which you used these words : — 11 Being a stranger in 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 in it that I authorise my agpnts to refund the money if people should ay that they ha v e not benefitted ts use."y Two old gentlemen, w whose names then would not like me to give you, had bees, manyrs to Indigestion for many yeorut They had tri*>d all kinds of medicine withoot relief. One of them was so bad he could use bear a glass of ale. Both were advised to uas the Syrup and both recovered, and were in hale and heartv as men in the prime of life, se A remarkable case is that of a house pain a named JeHerics, who lived at Penshursr, Kent. His business obliged him to expo himself a great deal to wind and weather, an " he was seized with rheumatism, and hi joints soon swelled up with dropsy, and were very stiff and painful. Nothing that the doctors could do seemed to reach the seat oi the trouble. It so crippled him that he could do hardly any work, and for the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had to give up» nd take to hisbed. He had been afflicted in this sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and disccuraged. Besides, he had spent over £13 for what he called "doctor's stuff " without ths least benefit. In the Spring he heard of what Mother Seigel s 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 tottle, and as I was going that way I carried it down to him myself. On getting to his hcuse 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 Ja» all winter with rheumatism and dropsy." His reply was: " There is no danger, The weather is fine, and Mother Seigel'a Curative Syrup has done for me in a few days what the octors could not do in three years. I think shall get well now." He kept on with the syrup, and in three weeks he was at work again, and has had no return of the trouble (or 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. Holloway House, Sunbury, Middlesex, June 25th, 1887 The above wonderful cure of Rheumatism was the result of the wonderful power of Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup to cleanse the blood of the poiac nous humours arise that rom Indigestion nd Dyspepsia. WHY HJJTDID i\OT~GcTTO THE HOSPITAL; HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR, My object in writing is two-fold ; to express my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell ft Bhort story which cannot fail to interest the feelings of many othera . It is all about myself, but I have remarked that when a man tells the honest truth about himself he is all the more likely to be of use to his fellow-creatures. To begin, then, you must know I had long been more or less subject to attacks of bronchitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and troublesome in Great Britain in certain seasons of the year. Some months ago I had a very severe turn of it, worse, 1 think, than I ever had before, It was probably brought on by catching cold, as we all are apt to when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate It would not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking pains in my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed, I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a feeble, sickiy. man, I shou d have thought less strangely of it ; but as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robust I feared some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might make strength of dq avail against it, I say hat was the way I thought. Presently I could not even lie down for the pain all over my body. I asked my doctor what he thought of my condition, and he frankly said, "lam sorry to have to tell you you are getting worse 1" This so frightened my friends, as well as mysolf, that they said, " Thomas, you must go to the Hospital} it may be your only chance for life I" But I didn't want, to go to the hospital. Who does, when he thinks he can possibly get along without it ? I am a laboring man, with a large family depending on me for support, and I might almost as well be in my grave as to be laid on my back in a hospital unable to lift a hand lor months, or God only knows how long. Right at this point I had a thought flash across my mind like a stream of sunshine in a cloudy day. I had heard and read about Mothe* Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, i would try that well-known remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the Syrup. Mark the wonderful result ! I had taken but three doses within twenty-four hours when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and threw up the phlegm and mucus off my chest by the mouthful. The Syrup had loosened and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, the racking pain, which I believe came from the bitter and poisonous humours in my blood and joints, soon left me entirely, and \ felt like going to sleep, and I did. sleep spund. and quiet. 1 hen I lei* hungry, wiMi a natural appetite, and qs, l ate I soon got strong and well, Ifdt I could leap through the air with I delight In a week I was able to go to my work again. It doesn't seem possible, yet it Is true, and the people know it. And, therefore, hen I say | preach »he good news of the groat power of beigel's Syrup to cure pain and disease far and wide, nobody will wonder at I me Thomas Canning t 75i Military-road, Canterbury, Kent. Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup is for sale by all chemists and medicine vendors : and by the Proprietors, Ai, J. White, Limited, 35, F»rnng^oniroad, tandqty E. $„ gnglind,
