the benefit experienced by the use of Thomsmis

like me, have languished through years of affliction
and stiffeiing, Without being ible to find I remedy

make the following statement.
About four years since, after being affected with
a violent cold, it left upon me a troublesome and
severe cough. Whilst the cough continued, which
was with scarcely an intermission during—this
long period, language fails to tell what I have suf.
fered from debility, pains in the breast and side,
night sweats, difficult expectoration, oppressed
breathing, and in fectall those symptoms which
mark a severe pulmonary affection. The relief
occasionally obtained by the discharge of the mat

system, but increased my fears, as the purulent
matter discharged-was frequently streaked with
During this time I was under the treatment of
several physicians, and took many of those prepa
rations iecommended as serviceable in the Cases
of others, but without relief and I at length con
cluded that a cure in my case was hopeless. But
how agreeably changed is now my opinion! I
have wed for about three weeks Thomson'a Corn•

cough has been relieved and my system.reinvigo
