Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced a

I am iudebtttd to my friend Rohcrt Shoemaker.
Esq., for the removal of this prejudice by proper
tests, and for encouragement to try tbem. when
suffering from great and long continued debility.
The use of three lettles of these Liners, at the
beginning of the present year. was. followed by
evident relief, and restoration to a dtgree of bod
ily and mental vigor which I had not felt for six
months before, and had almost despaired of re
gaining. I therefore thank (lod and my friend

havo no hesitation in stating that, if these Litters
were freely used anion? our soldiers, hundreds of

We call particular attention to the following re

Pailapelfuia, August 2'ird, 1S02.
Mxsr. Jo tut ir JZciim. Well, rrcntlemen.vonr
Hooflands German Bitters has saved my life.
There is no mistake in this. It is vouched for
by numbers of my comrades, some of whose names
arc appended, and who were fully cognizant of
all the circumstances of my case. I am, and
have been lor the last four years, a member of
Sherman's celebrated battery, and nnder the im
mediate command ofCapt. 11 L. Ayros. Through
the expo sure attendant upon mv duties. I wa
attacked in November last with inflammation of
tho lungs, and was for scventv-two days in tho
hospital. This was followed by great debility,
heightened by an attack of dyscnicry. I was then
removed from the Whito House, and sent to this
city on board tho Steaiacr State of Maine,"froui
which 1 landed on the 2nth of dune. Since that
time 1 have been about as low as any one could
be and still retain a spark of vitality. F'or a
week or more I was scarcely ablo to swallow anv-
thing, and if I did force a morsel down, it was
mmcdiatcly thrown up aain.
1 1 could not even keep a class of water on mv
stomach. Life could not last under these circum
stances; aud, according! v. the physicians who.
had been working faithfully, though unsuccess
fully, to rescue me from the grasp of the dread
Archer, frankly told mc thev could do no more
for mc, and advised me to see a clergyman, and
to make such disposition of my limited funds as
best suited me. An acquaintance who visited mo
lit tho hospital, Mr. Frederick Steinborn. of Sixth
below Arch Street, advised me, as a forlorn hope.
te try your Litters, and kindly procured a bottle.
From the time I commenced taking them tho
gloomy shadow of death receded, and I urn now
thank God for it. eettinz better. Thou'rh 1 have
taken but two bottles, I have gained ten pounds,
and I feel sanguine of being permittod to rejoin
my no ana uaughter, Irom whom 1 have heard
nothing for eighteen months: for. eentlcmen. I
am a loyal Virginian, from the vicinity of Front
Royal. To your invaluable Litters I owe the cer
tainty of life which has taken place of vajrue fears
to your Litters will 1 owe the glorious privi
lege of again clasping to my bosom thoso who aro
dearest to me in life.
Very truly yours, Isaac Maloxb.
