Da. J. H. St:execs, —DearSir,—l am ' , laced
from a sense of justice towards you, ae 'II .e
duty to the public, to make known one of '-b. .
moot hopeless and extraordinary cures, in m .
own person, that you liaim ever had the plceiure
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to poi:
tray, in truthful colors, my consuming ifiderted . ,'
and the remarkable chance which Schneck'if
Pulmonary Syrup effected in so short a time.
I was taken some time prsvious to Decefflhei
1848, with a heavy cold, producing incessant
coughing, accompanied with acute pain in the'
right side, pains in the back, under the right
shoulder, having heresy night sweats, high fevers
&c., which mode me so nervous and restless as
to product utter prostration. AII these affliction.
increased viith suCli,iinfente, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. lid
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thinie
that medical skill could suggest, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing worse,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my diet:
ease increased, My cough became distressing
my pains severe; end, extremely debilitated, I
tort all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly dep: eseion. My physician examined me,
and informed me I hail an absess on the upper
part of my liver and lower part of one of my lunge,
Notwithstanding all this chill, I grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I cdtrelnded to I, eve nothing undone, and called
is a consulting physician, who fully coxicUrred
with my own, and pronounced My case on ei
tremely critical one. lie thought I was in im
minent danger--enying my disease "was one the
is seldom if ever cored." All Ibis time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing ; eipeciPa
sing from a pint to a quart of nnuceous matter
avery 21 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my disease. At this stage
of my Line., my friends in Matol suggested
the use of Schneck's Pulmonic Syrup but know
ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money from the afflicted, I hes
itated. My friends, however, insisting, I was
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of Moral, and
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experiences charge for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when I was so far relieved as to bd .
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. He
examined me, and pronounced my right lung af
fected, but in a healing con lition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottles, and found
myself once more restored to health. I will fur
ther add, that the consulting physician, seeing the
action of the medicine, fully approved its use.
To give the reader some idea of the severity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which *as finally re
duced by my sufierings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first of this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds, thus gaining in a few mouths 511
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is nut in my power to convey, in the
short space of this certificate, the convincing
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particular,'
of the agonizing afflictions through which I hate
passed ; but to those who will take the trouble to
call on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt's hotel,,l
shall take pleasure in detailing every particular.
In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge epee .
every person who may have the premonitory
symptoms of this fatal disease, not to delay one
hour, but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately.
Hit skill in the treatment of this complaint, and
prompt detection of diseased parts of the lungs
by mane of his Stethescope, added to my own
mirscu'ous cure, fully satisfies me, that had 1 ear
lier submitted myself to his care, I should have
escaped much suffering; but restrained by doubt.
and suspicion, which make us all naturally skep
tical in regard to the virtues of a medicine whets
first introduced. I resisted the importunities of
my friends till almost too late ; igul yielded only
as a last resort, resolved to " kill or cure." To
those afflicted as I have been, again let ine say,
hesitate no longer, my own case is presented to
you as convincing evidence, that when all else
fails your last hope is in Dr, Schneek'sPulmonic
Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those
who may be strangers to me, appended to (bisect
tifica'e the noes of gentlemen well known in
the walks of public and private life, and whose
etanding in society admits of no cavil or doubt in
I regard to their testimony.
We the undersigned, residents of Bristol and
vicinity, are well acquainted with Mr. Johnson,
and know him to have been afflicted as he states
above. We also know that he used Schneck's
Pulmonic Syrup, and have every reaeou to be
lieve, that to this medicine he owes his preserve--
Bon from a premature grave. The known in
tegrity and position in society of Mr, Johnson
however is a sufficient guarantee to the public of
the truth of this statement.
