but with positive pleasure.
Th'* precise composition of th! syrup and the mede of
preparing it, are th ■ r- sult cf a series of eiperiroents
continued for years Before offering it for sale, it was
subjected to the test of experience in the hands of emi

recommended it in the highest terms, and still employ It
in th-ir practice. In addition to tin* v\ idencc of its mer

Ist A distinguished physician of Virginia, of truch
experience, writ- e of it thus :
"1 should have written before thl*. but fell disposed

more than halt the quantity received, and the experiment .

Independent of the smallness of the dose, and the plca
s.antness of the sirup (great advantages in doting chil
dren! the advantage of administering it under a variety i
of circumstances, enhances its value; indeed there is
scarcely a condition of the system ir. w hich It may net
be administered. Yours, Ac."

had previously sold the syrup, writes
