As this is jubilee year it tends to make one ook back and think of the flight of time, and n 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 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 aye 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 pnoe 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 fouud it by far the best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia 7-* lave met with, and I nave sold thousands of i jUles. 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 fulness and heaviness, dizziness, bad breath, slime and mucus on the gums and teeth, constipation, and yellowness of the eyes and skin, dull and sleepy sensations, ring ng 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 enquiries, covering a great variety of ailments, my customers have always answered, "lambtter," or "I am 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 cured say to the suffering : "Go and get Mother Reigel s Curative Syrup, it will make you well." Out of the hundreds of cures I will r^ame one qr wo that happen to come into my mind. ' ' Two old gentlemen, whose names they wou^d not like me to give you, had been martyrs to Indigestion for many yearsr They had tried all kinds of wedigfoe Without

relief. One of them was so bad he could nut bear a glass of ale, Hoth were advis :d to u.^e he yrup and both rec'/Verc 1, an I *wore a< !ia!e aivi heartr as men m the prime of ife. A remarkable case is tint of a house painter named Jerteries, who lived at Penshurst, m ICei.t His business obliged him to expose himself a great deal to wind and wcathe-, a d he was seized wi h rheuinat : sm, and his joints s'tr.n swelled up with drop y, an*' were very stiff and painful. Nothing that the doctors cou'd do seemed to reach the seat of the trouble It so crip-.ile 1 him that he could lo hardly any work, and lo the whole of thr winter of 1878 and '79, ho ha lto give up and lake lo Ins bed. He ha i been nfllictod m this >ony way for tlree year;, and was getting a'O n our and discouraged. Besides, he h.nl spent over £13 lor what he ca'.l.-d "doctor's ■stuff " without th- least benefit. In the Spring !ie henrd of what Mother Sei^el s Curative Syrup has done for others and bought a 2s 6 1 botile of me. In a few days he sent me word he was much better — before he had finished the holtle. He then sent to me for a4s 6d 1 ottle, and as I was going th t way I carried t down to him myself. On getting to his hevtse 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, 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 .'octors could not do m three years. I tjiink I shall get well now." He kept on with the syrup, and m three weeks he was at work again, and has had no return of the trouble » 3< v 1 eailjten years. Any medicine that can c"o this should be known all over the world.

Yours faithfully, (Signed) Rupert Graham. Of Graham & Son. Ilolloway FTouse, Sunbury, Middlesex. June 25th, ISS7.
