AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM A VETERAN.
As this is jubilee year it tends to make one ook back and think of tbe 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 tbe 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 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 pon with pride and satisfaction.
Ever since that time I have fouud it by fa the best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia 1 have met with, and I have sold thousands of bottles. 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, ringing 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, " I am better," or •♦ I am perfectly well." What I have feldom 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 Seigel s Curative Syrup, it will make you well." Out of the hundreds of cures I will name one or 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 nearly as men m the prime qf life. A remarkable case is that of a house painter named Jetferies, 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 of the trouble. It so crippled him that he could do hardly any work, and tor 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 sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and discouraged. Besides, he had spent over £13 for what he called " doctor's s.tuft " 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 pf mp. Jii a few days' he sent me vyord he was much better— before he Had finished the bottle. He then sent to me for a4s 6d bottle, and as I was going that way I carried it down to him myself. On getting to his he use 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 doctors could not do in 'three years. I think I shall get well now.'' He kept Pn wjth the syrup, and m three weeks he was at work Qgain. and has had no return of the trouble rev (.early ten years. Any medicine that do this should be known all over the world, Yours faithfully, (Signed) Rupert Graham. tiii it eOf Graham & Son. Holloway House, Sunbury, Middlesex; '• ' • June 1887.
