AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM A VETERAN.

As this is jubilee year it tends to make one 00k back and think of the Bight 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 1 remember the first circular you sent out some nine or ten years aga. 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 : — " IJeing a stranger m a strange land, 1 do not wish the people to feel that I want to take the least advantage over them. I feel that jf have a remedy that will cure disease, and I aye so much confidence m it that I authorise j 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 fouud it by far the best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia 1 I have met with, and I have sold thousands of i bottles. It bas 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, ba-1 breath, slime and mucus on the gums and teeth, constipation, and yellowness of the .yes and skin, dull and sleepy sensations, ring ng f . m the ears, heartburn, loss of appetite, and, m short, wherever there are signs that the system is clogged 1 , and the blood is out of order. Upon repeated enquiries, covering a great variety of ailments, my customers have always answered, "I am b°tter," 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 bave been cured say to the suffering : "Go and get Moth.r Seigel s Curative Syrup, it will make you well." 'Out of the hundreds of cures V will $ame Qneqr 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 aU 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 life. I A remarkable case is that of a house painter named Jetteries, 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 t 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 tar the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had to give up and fake 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 stuff " without tha least benefit. In the Spring he heard of what Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup has done fpr Others bought a 2;- 6l bqtQe of me. In a few da*}s 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 th" I way I carried ; it down \o him myself. O-i gating to his hpujse w£at was my astonishment and surprise [ to find him weeding an onion bed. I could hsurdl-- believe my own eyes, and said ;•—<

"You ought not to be out here, m-«n, it " a be the death of you, after Jnvuig .being I 'id up all winter with rheuma i;m and dropsy." His reply was : "There is no danger. The weather is fine, and Mothe. Seigel's '"urative Syrup has done for me m a few days what the •'octors ciuld not do m three years. I think I shall get well now." He Uept on with the syrup, and m three weeks he was at work again, and has had no return of the trouble ■ii v 1 ( ail} ten years. Any medicine that can <"< this .should bf known all ove • the world . Yours faithfully, 1 (Signed) Rupert Graham. Of Graham & Son. Holloway House, Sunbur , M d» : lesex June 25th, ISS7. The above wonderful cvr 2 of Rheumatism was the result of the remarkable power of Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup to cleanse the blood of the poisonous humours hat arise from Indigestion and Hyspeps'a. Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup is for sale by all chemists and medicine vendo s, and by the proprietors A. J. White, limited, 35, Farringdon Road. London, En^.
