Many and many a wife endures years of bodily
suffering and of mental anguish, prostrate and help
less, embittering her life, that of her husband, and
hazarding the future welfare of her children, arising
from causee which, if known, would have spared the
suffering, the anguish to the wife, and to the hus
band embarrassments and pecuniary difficulties hav
ing their origin in the mind being weighed down and
harassed in consequence of the sickness of the Qom
panion of his bosom.
How important that the causes should be known
to every wife, to every husband, that the dreadful
and harrowing consequences to the health and hap
pinew of both may be avoided ! Life is too short and
health too precious to admit any portion of the one,to
Be spent without the fail enjoyment of the other.

"DR. A. M. MAURICEAU—My Dear ' The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, came
safely to hand. I would not have troubled you with
these few line., but that I am impelled by a muse
of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and liettlifelt emotions.
"My wife hes been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in consequence of her great au.
guish and suffering some months before and during
confinement; every successive one more and more
debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life in in v.
min.& danger, end which was, on the last occasion,
despairedot /supposed that this state of things was
inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At thin time (now about two mouth.) I heard your
book highly spoken of. as containing some matters
reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal, I can
not express to you the relief it a.forded toy distressed
mind and the joy its pages Imparted to my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. Id. Deso•
meat. provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No pecu.
Mary consideration can ever repay the obligations I
RIO under to you for having been the means of int.
Parting to us the matters contained in' The Married
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' But for
this, ere atudlier year would have passed over my
head, in oil human probability my wife would hove
