READ WHO SAYS SO
From the Rev. Levi Ct, Beck, Pastor of the Baptist
Church, Pemberton, N. J., forruorly of the North . Baptist
I have known Booflaud's German Bitters favorably for
a number of years. I have used them in my own familyi
and have been so pleased with their effects that I was in
duced to recommend them to many others, and know that
they have operated in a strikingly benoncial manner. I
take great pleasure in thus publicly proclaiming • this
fact, and calling the attention of thaw afflicted with the
diseases for which they are recommended to these Bit-
tens, knowing from experience that my recommendation
will be sustained. I do this more cheerfully as Hoof-
Wad's Bitters is intended to benefit the afflicted, and is
"not a rum drink.) , Yours truly.
From Rev. J. Newton Brown, D. D. Editor of the En
cyclopedia of Religious Knowledge and Christian Chroni
cle , Philtilielphia.
Although not disposed Co favor or recommend Patent
Idehicines in general, through distrust of their ingredients
and etfeins, I yet know of no sufficient reasons why a
man may not, testily to the benefits he believes himself to
have received from any simple preparation, in the hope
that he may thus contribute to the benefit of others.
I do this the more readily in regard to Boatload's Gor
man Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson, or this city
because I was prejudiced against them for many years,
under the impression that they were chiefly an alcoholic
mixture. lam indebted to my friend, Robert Shoema
ker, Eso., - for the removal of this prejudice by proper
teats, and for encouragement to try them when suffering
from great and long continued debility. The use of
three bottles of these Bitters at the beginning of the
present year, was followed by evident relief and restora
tion to a degree of bodily and mental vigor which I bad
not for six months before, and had almost despaired of
regaining. 1 therefore thank God and my friend for di
recting me to the use of them.._.,
J. NEWTON BROWN, PhHada.
From Rev. Warren Randolph, Pastor of Baptist
Church, Germantown, Penn.
Dr. C. R. Jackson :—Dear Sir:—Personal experience
enables me to say that I regard the German Bitters, pre
pared by you, as a most excellent medicine. In cases of
severe cold and general debility I nave been greatly bete
fitted by the use of the Bitters. and doubt not they will
produce similar eteote on others.
Yours truly WARREN RANDOLPH,
From Rev. J. H. Mr - /er, realer of Redding 31. E
Dr. C. M. Jackson:—Dear Str:—Having used your Ger
man Bitters in my family frequently I am prepared to Say
that it has been of great service. 1 believe that in moat
cases of general debility of the system it is the safest and
most valuable remedy of which I have any knowledge.

Dr. O. M. Jackson:—Dear Sire—l feel it a pleasure thus,
of my own accord, to bear testimony to the excellence of
the German Bitters. Some years since being much• of
dieted with Dyspepsia, I used them with very tu:lends]
results. I have often recommended them to persons CD
feebled by that tormenting disease, and have beard from
them the most flattering testimonials as to their groat
Irene. In cases of general debility, I bolicve it to be a
tonic that cannot be surpassed. J. M. LYONS.
From the Rev Thomas Winter, Pastor of Roxborough
Dr. Jackson:—Doir Sir:--I felt it due to your excel
lent preparation ' kloodand German Bitters, to add my
testimony to the deserved reputation it has obtained. I
have for years, at times, been troubled with great disorder
in my head and nervous system. I was advieed by a
friend to try a bottle of your German Bitters; did so, and
have experienced great and unexpected relief; my health
has been very materially benentied. I confidently recom

The Richmond Examiner of the 11th inst
says • _ .
"Fort Gaines has gone the way of Hatteras,
Roanoke Island, Pulaski and Hilton Head.
Its isolated position was exposed to the con
centrated assault of the Yankee navy, and a
flanking operation of troops debarked upon
commanding points. Perhaps the officer in
command of the fort 'snay have proven
a traitor. In that case eternal infamy awaits
4 .‘U these forts were not built to be taken,
they have not thus far rendered any other
use. It is not worth while to discuss the
policy since Fort Gaines is about the last-cif
