Sir, —Having derived much benefit from bathing in your Hot Springs, "Waiwera, I think it is a duty that I owe to the public—especially suffering humanity—that my case should be made known. Before I went to the Springs I suffered for more than a month the most excruciating pain from rheu- , matte gout, had to bo lifted in and out of bed, iv ■ fact, was unable to walk without the use of two sticks, H It took me an hour to walk from Walcetield-Htreet to the 'Lady Bowen.' Alter getting to the Springs I bathed twice a day and drank freely of the mineral waters, at leawt :i pint each day, and after six days I felt quite well, free from pain, and can walk as well . as ever T did. It is now eleven days since I left and have had no return of pain. If this should induce any person suffering us I was to try the hut baths, I fce'l sure they will get cured, and if so, serve the Object I have in writing to you.—l am, sir, your obedient servant, Thos. "Weaving. Robert Graham, Esq. Auckland, January 5, 1875. Mr Robert Graham, Sir, —Understanding you are the proprietor of the Hot Springe at Waiwera, I think it is only due to you to give a short account of ray successful experience of this efficacy of the Springs in the cure of Rheumatism. Iliad been suffering from Rheumatism since the year 'GO, contracted through cold and wet working on the West Coast, and from that time until I left the Springs I had suffered periodically from the same. The second bath I took brought back all ihe rheumatic pains I had ever experienced in different parts of my body. At the end of a fortnight T was free from all pains, with the exception of the ankles (which was always the worst part affected), and with the exception of my feet being very tender from so much hot bathing I am quite a new man; I have not the slightest pain of Rheumatism about me, not even in the ankles. To parties visiting the Springs I should advise them not to feel alarmed or disappointed if they iind themselves worse the first, day or two ; according to the preneral opinion it shows the action of the waters. Also I would recommend the drinking at least two or three glasses of water both on entering and leaving the bath; also, sweating in the blankets, for which accommodation is provided in each bath; and to parties affected with acute Rheumatism I think the more they use- them the more speedy will he. the cure. I remain, Mr, Yours respectfully, -, U. 11. "WII.LOCOTIISY. Auckland, 10th January, 1575. Dear Sir,— In the interests of those who may be similarly afflicted, and in recognition of the benefits I derived at your sanatorium, the Waiwera Hot Sbrings. I desire to record the efficacy of the baths and water in the cure of Dyspepsia, from which I had suffered many months. Thanks, however, to the virtues of the mineral waters, together with a free use of baths, I was relieved of the distressing symptoms, and have since enjoyed the best of health. Yours truly, JoriN Bent. Robert Graham, Ksq. Robert Graham,' Esq. Dear Sir,—Having suffered from rheumatism for some time past, on the recommendation of my medical adviser, Dr. Turnbull, of Chrtatchnrch, I visited your Hot Springs. After three weeks'bathing and drinking the mineral water, I am restored to perfect health. Iv fact, I have not felt so well for years an I rim at present. The'trip altogether hits been a most enjoyable one. I found the hotel comfortable, excellent irMi; attendance god, civil and obliging, pleasant for the invalid so'king health, or the man of business requiring taxation. 1 know of no place in New Zealand where a person could pass a few weeks more agreeably than at your Hot Springs.
