The following strong testimonial is furnished
at the request of Dr. Davis, of Lynchburg, Va.
by a gentleman of great respectability, residing
in that place, whose original certificate, of which
the following is an exact copy, is left with the pro
prietor of the Catholicon:
LYNCHBURG, Va May 511,,•1824:
At the request of„D.—, I here give a state
ment of the effect of Potter's Catholicon in the re.
storation of ,rny -health. - y--constitution had—
been in a declininv f sta more than eighteen
months. 1 was ihuc troubled with a short dry
cough, slight difficulty of breathing, which was
much increased by bodily. .exercise. At night,
great oppression at the chest was experienced,
with excessive colliquative sweats, soreness and
pain in the sides and breast, with extreme languor
and loss of appetite. In this situation, I travelled
to the New England states by sea, but obtained .
no permanent relief. Some time after my return
by way of experiment, I was induced to use Pot
ter's Cutholicon, and after using two bottles, my
health was perfectly restored.
DAVID R. EDLEY.
PHILADELPHIA, March 28th, • . '
Deai Sir—After many but ineffectual t rio to.
relieve myself from a most severe and a istres iug
attack of dyspersia,; have been completel y c red
by the use ot, to me, your invaluable Cathol' on,
and I think it. my duty thus publicly to State my
case, and in order that others may profit thereby.
The first symptoms of the disease were manifest.
ed in the spring of I 827. 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. I was recommend
ed to retire into the country, where I so far re.
cruited, that I began to think the enemy was dis
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 went back to my doctor, who
crammed me with pulverized oyster shells, etc. etc.
My teeth became loose, and some actually 101 l out;
there-was ar constant pain in_my_ joints, particular
ly in damp weather, pains in my right side and
shoulder, etc. I now su . omitted to another course
of medical treatment, until the fall of 1829, when ,
my physicians stated the disease to be a sehirrus
of the liver. Then it was that I determined to try
your Catholicon, a few doses of which improved
my appetite, and gave me a feeling of ease and
comfort, I cannot readily describe. In twelve day.
after using but one bottle, I found myself well— .
the 1;3 \ V teeth I hadleft wore firmly clasped by the
gum:: and my appetite and digestion perfectly re.
stored: I now enjoy as good healthas I ever did,
- end I mud - say it is to your valuable Cutliolicon
that I attribute this happy result.

Dear Sir.—l will shortly statemiy;fininer case.
I labored for six years under a violent Liver Com
plaint. It first manifested itself in the summer:
of 1821, and rendered frequent application to an
eminent. tinnily physician necessary, by wlitaai—
prescriptions I cmild• obtain only a temporary re
lief. After the lapse of many months, without re
,permanent benefit from medicine, I .
came to the determination to try your Catholicon..
I took three bottles, and thank God, Loan truly
pay the disease of the liver entirely left me; and I
have since been as well and hearty as man can be,, •

My cure was effected solely by your celebrated
