Although not.disposed to favor or recommend Patent

and effects, I yet. knows of 110' sufficient: reasons why a
MIL may not testify to the benefits he believes himself to

thethe may thimconuithite to the benefit of ethers.
Ido this the more readily t regard to Hooflandis Ger

because I was prejudiced against them .for many yea re,
under the impression that they were chiefly an aloolio.'le
mixture.- lam indebted to my." friend, Robert Shoertu. , -
ker, Esq., for the removal, of this prejddice by proper
tests, and for 'elicouragemerit to try them when suffering
from great iurd : long continued debility.. :The use of
three bottles of these Bitters at the beginning of the
present year, was followedbY evident relief and restora
