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 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 SeigeFs 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 Ihe least advantage over them. I feel that I have a remedy that will cure disease, and I hare so much confidence m it that I authorise my agents to refund the money if people should say that they have not benentted by its use." I felt at once that you would never say that un'ess 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 fouud it by far he best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia have met with, and I have sold thousands of bottles. It has never failed m any case where t ere were any of the following symptoms : — 'ervous or sick headache, sourness of the s imach, rising of the food after eating, a F2nse of fulness and heaviness, dizziness, bad breath, slime and mucrs on the gums and teeth, constipatio i, and yellowness of the eyes and skin, dull and sleepy sensations, ringng m the ears, heartburn, loss of appetite, and, m short, where -er there are signs that the system is clogged, and the blood is out of order. Upoa repp .ted enquiries, covering a great variety of ailments, my customeis have always answered, "lamb tier," or "I am perfectly well." "What I have veldom or never seen before m the case of any medicine is that people tell each other of its virtues, and those who have been cured say to the sifferinj : "Go and get Mother Seige"s Curaive Syrup, it will make you well." Out of the hundreds of cures I will name one o r wo that 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 yearsr 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 wore as hale and hearlv as men m the prime of ]jfe, A remarkable case is that of a house painter named Jefieries, who lived at Penshurst, m Kent His business obliged 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 ol
the trouble. It so crippled him that he could do hardly any work, and to' the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had to give up and take to his bed. He had been afflicted m this lorry way for three years, and was gettinc WOW out ftnd discov#se<3. Prides, fie )>a<ji
