at the request of Dr. Davis, of Lynchburg, Va.

in that place, whose original eirtificato, of which

prietor of the Catholicon. • •
LYNCHBURG, Va May sth, 1828
At the request of D.—, I here give a state
ment of the effect of Potter's Catholicon in Mb re
storation of my health.
,My constitution had
ten in a dcierffilig s a e or rilbre than eighteerr
months. I was much troubled with a Short dry
cough, slight difficulty of breathing, which was
much increased by bodily exorcise. At night,
great oppression at the chest, was experienced,
with exessive colliquativo 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 Catholicon, and after using two bottles, my
health was perfectly restored.

PHILADELPHIA, March 28th, 1629.
Dear Sir—After many but ineffectual trials to
relieve myself from a most severe and distressing
attack of dyspeptia,l have been completely cured
by the use of, to me, your invaluable Catholicon,
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 wore manifest.
ed in the'spring 0f1827. Warned at the approach
of this destroyer ofall ease, I lied recourse to ph-y
-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 die•
lodged. r 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 mo with pulverized oyster shells, etc. etc.
My teeth became loose, and some actually fell out;
there was a comitant pain in my joints, particular
ly in damp weather, pains in my right side end
shoulder, etc. I now stfomitted tnntiother course
of medical treatment, until the fall of 1829, when
my physicians stated the disease to be a scAirrus
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 raadily describe. In twelve days
after using but one bottle, I found' myself well.
the w e Ulf laid ie - ft Welt 'firmly The
gums and my appetite and digestion perfectly re
stored. I now enjoy as goedliealth as I ever did,
and I must say it is to your valualile CatioTtcon
that I attribute this happy result.

Dear Sir.—l will shortly state my former case..
I labored for dix years under a violent Liver Com
plairtt. It first manifested -itself in the summer
of 1821, aid rendered frequent application to an
eminent family physician necessary, by whose
prescriptions I wild obtain only a temporary re.
lief. After the lapse of many mentlisovithout rer.-
ceiving any permiment benefit fions rnediclne,4
came to the determination to try your Catholloon.
I took three bottles, and thank God, I can truly
say the disease of the liver entirely left me; and I
havd sines been as well and hearty as man can be„
