Bristol, Bucks county, Pa. 3
Dtt. J. H. Scirtexcit, —DearSir,—l ant induced'
from a sense of justice towards you, as well or
duty to the public, to make known one of the
most hopeless and extraordinary cures, in myt
awn person, that you have ever had the pleasure
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to pen ,
tray, in truthful colors, my consuming disease,,
and the remarkable chance which Bclineck'w ,
Pulmonary syrup effected in so short 'a tithe.
I was taken sonic time previous to December'
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 heavy night sweats, high fever.
&c., which made me so nervous and restless as
to produce utter prostration. AII these afflictions
increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January lout I sent for my family physician. Hs
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
that medical skill could suggest, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing warn,•
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my dis
ease increased. My cough became distressing;
my pains severe; and, extremely debilitated,
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melon•
choly dept mishit). My physician examined me.
and informed me I haul an absess on the upper
part of my liver and lower part ofone of toy lunge.
, Notwithstanding all this skill, I grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
1 1 concluded to I. ave nothing undone, and celled
in a consulting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, and pronounced my case an ex—
tremely critical one. He thought I was in im
minent danger--saying my disease "was one the
is seldom if ever cured." All this time I woe en
during sufferings that made life burdensome; etc
periencing great pain in coughing ; expectora
Hug from a pint to a quart of nauceous matter
every 24 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my disease. A t this stage
of my Line., my friends in Mato, 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 March, end
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experience a change for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when I wee so far relieved as to be
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 hr health,. I will fur
Cher 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 tho
Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in
health wee 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufferings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first of this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds, thus gaining is a few months 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in my power to convey, in the
