GREAT ENGLISH REMEDY!
The most valuable Spring & Snmmer Medicine
DR. HALSEY'S FOREST WINE ! !
fRONIZED by the nobility and Medical Fac
1. nity of England, and esteemed the most extra
ordinary medicine in the world. -
Medicines containing molasses or liquorice, like
the boasted Sarsaparillas, require many large bottles
to produce the slightest change in health.. The
Fol:EsT WINE is altogether a different article.
It contains no syrups to give it consistency, but ac
quires its excellent flavor, and pow'erful medicinal
pynperties froM the vegetable plants of which it is
composed. The Forest Wine combines the virtues
Wild Cherry, Dandelion, Yellow Dock,
with other valuable plants whose prelpertics art
still more effective.
Its high concentration renders it one of the most
efficient medicines now in use. Sometimes lc,,
than a single-bottle restores the lingering patient
from debility, and sickness, to strong acd
vigorous health. Every dose shows its good effects
nn the constitution, and improves the state of the
health. The Forest Wine i's4ecommended, in the
strongest terms, for all compfeints of the 5t0mmh,,,,,, - .

despairingly of my case, and tried .to persuade n
from ntaking use of any advertised remedies ; and.
I doubt not, but what there are hundreds who are
dissuaded from taking your excellent medicines, in

many advertised remedies [ln t forth by unprincipled
men, in flaming advertisements. But, what a pity
it is, that the deception used by others. should Iv
