PHILADELPHIA, March 29th, 1829.
Dear Sir—After many but ineirectoal trials to
relieve myself from a most severe and distressing
attack of dyspepsia, I have been completely cured
by the use of, to me, your invaluable Ca tholicon,
and I thitit my duty thus public.ly to state my
case, and )
-order that others may profit thereby.
The first symptomsof the disease were manifest
ed in the spring 0f1a27. Warned at the approach
of this destroyer of all ease, I had recourse to phy
sician after physician, and remedy after remedy,
but received little or no relief. 1 was recommend
ed to retire into the country, whore I so far re
cruited, that I began to think the enemy was dal
lodged. I returned to the city, where in a short
time all my old symptoms returned with double
violence. My stomach became so debilitated with
drugs that' I relinquished the regular system and
entered on a course of Swaim's Panacea. It did
me no good, and I wet:114110i, to any doctor, who
crammed ine with pulverized oyster shells, etc; etc.
My teeth became loose,and some actually fell out•
there- was a constant pain in my joints, particular
ly in damp weather, pains in my right side and
shoulder, etc. I now.suemitted to another course
of medical treatment, until the fall of 11129, when
my physicians stated the.disease to be a satin-us
of the liver. Then it.. was that I determined to try
your Catholicon, a tbw doses of which improved
my appetite, and gave me a feeling_ of ease end
comfort, I cannot readily describe. In twelve days
after using but one bottle, I found myself well—
the few teeth I had left were firmly clasped by the
gums and my appetite and digestion perfectly re
stored. I now enjoy as good health as I ever did,
and I must say it is to your valuable Cutholicoa
that I attribute this happy result.
