" am grateful to Dr. Pierce
for his advice, and the kind and
encouraging fetters he wrote
me. 1 would advise every
woman suffering with female
, disease to consult him."
Wc.ak and sick women vho arc suffering from womanly diseases
are advised to use Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It establishes
regularity, dries unhealthy drains, heals inflammation and ulceration
and cures female weakness. If "Favorite Prescription" does not act as
promptly as desired, weak and sick women are invited to consult Dr.
Pierce by letter,ra?. All correspondence is held as strictly private
and sacredly confidential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
There is no restriction to the invitation to consult Dr. Pierce
by letter, free. He may be consulted before using "Favorite
Prescription," or after giving it a fair trial, or without using the
medicine at all. The offer of medical advice made by Doctor
Pierce is a genuine offer made by a genuine physician whose
experience and success in the treatment and cure of womanly
diseases has placed him in the front rank of physicians who
successfully treat the diseases peculiar to women.
"After being subjected for some time to ah annoying female trouble,,"
writes Mrs. Minnie Tillotson, of Potomac, Vermilion Co., 111., Box 150,
"I wrote to Dr. R. V. Pierce, who at once understood my suffering and
advised me to take his ' Favorite Prescription ' and ' Golden Medical
Discovery,' and use also his 'Lotion Tablets' and 'Suppositories.'
After using his medicines eight or nine months I was completely cured.
I am grateful' to Dr. Pierce for his advice and the kind and encourag
ing letters he wrote to me. I would advise' every woman suffering with female disease to consult
him: Prompt and respectful attention will be given and good advice received by so-doing."
" Favorite Prescription " has the testimony of thousands of women to its complete
cure of womanly diseases. Do not accept an unproved substitute in its place.
