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 in this way I am reminded that I am one of the veterans in tlie Bale of your valuable and successful medicine. I have sold it from the very first, and have sent it into every county in England and many parts of Scotland. Well do I remember the first circular you sent out some nine or tea years ago. You had come to England from America to introduce Mother Seigel’s Curative Syrup, and I was struck by a paragraph in which you used these words :—“ Being a stranger in 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 have so much confidence in it that I authorise my agents to refund the money if people should say that they have not benefited by its use.” I felt at onec 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 found it by far the best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia I have met with, and I have sold thousands of bottles. It has never failed in 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 in the ears, heartburn, loss of appetite, and, in short, wherever there are signs that the system is clogged and the blood is out of order. Upon repeated inquiries, covering a great variety of ailments, my customers have always answered: “I am better,” or “I am perfectly well.” What I have seldom or never seen before in 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 two 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 and Dyspepsia for many years. 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 were as bale and hearty as men in the prime of life. A remarkable case is that of a house painter, named Jeffries, who lived at Fenshurst, in Kent. His business obliged him to expose himself a great deal to wind and weather, and he was seized with rheumatism, and bis 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 ho could do hardly any work, and for the whole of the winter of 1878 and ’79 he had to give up and take to his bed. He had been afflicted in this sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and discouraged. Besides, he had spent over LIS for what he called “doctor’s stuff” without the least benefit. In the spring he heard what Mother Seigel’a Curative Syrup has dona for others and bought a2s fid bottle of me. In a few days he sent me word he was much better—before he had finished the bottle. He then sent to me for a4s fid bottle, and as I was going that way I carried it do wn to him myself. On getting to his house what was my astonishment and surprise to find him out in the garden weeding an onion bed. I could hardly believe my own eyes, and said “ You ought not to be out here, man,fit may be the death of you, after 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 Syrnp has done for me in a few days what the doctors could not do in three years, I think I shall get well now.” Ho kept on with the Syrup, and in three weeks he was at work again, and has had no return of the trouble for now nearly ten years. Any medicine that can do this should be known all over the world. Yours faithfully, (Signed) Rupert Graham, Of Graham and Son. Holloway House, Sunbury, Middlesex, June 25th, 1887.
