HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, 1 do freely declare the following facts ;—I
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 19
years at times with most desperate pain in the
stomach, which at times seemed to expand as if
it would burst; also for many years 1 was ter
ribly troubled with cramps in my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my sufferings for so long a
time. I could do no business for the last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's sleep for
the last five years. I never could find any relief
worth mentioning, until last November, when I
met with the Extract of American Oil, and to
my no little surprise I got 'relieved of all in a
short time and to this day. I respectfully in
vite all who choose to cull and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can say
it has done wonders on others around me in va
rious complaints. If ever an article was put
out honestly, this is one. I know it sells rap
idly here. No family in the land will be with.
out it when they once know its use.
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850
I do hereby certify to the followinifacts
That I have suffered for ftve years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, end never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
days only. Last Novernbei I got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, I used it inward
ly, and to my surprise it removed the complaint
in a short time. From what I have seen and
heard odhs wondrous effects upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend ir, and be
lieve it to be worth all the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. 'C. COUTB.
LEWISTOWN, March IEOO
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with a clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery.
sipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Let
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off my head. During
this time I had no relief for more than a few
days at a time. Last October 1 got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, used it inwardly
and outwardly, and to my great astonishment
and my neighbors, I got clear of it in a short
time, and to this time I have noticed its won
drous effects on other desperate complaints. I
do assure my friends and the public that it is
indeed a wonderful thing for many complaints.

ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur

prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of Morel), and
used several bottle., 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 was so far relieved as to be
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. He
examined me, and pronounced my right !ung af
fected, hut in a healing con lition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bout., and found
myself once more restored t.i health. 1 will fur

of my caee, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which wee frailly re-
duced by my oufiorings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the firat of this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds. thus gaining in a few montlfit 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in my power to convey, in the
short space of this certificate, the convincing

"Do. A. M. MAURICE./ —My Dear Sir: The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, cause
safely to band. I would not have troubled you with
these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense
of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.
"My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in consequence of her great an
guish and suffering some months before and during
confinement; every successive one more and more
debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life in im
minent danger, and which was, on the last °mask%
despaired of. 1 supposed that this state of ;binge wait
inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At this time (now about two months) 1 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 adorded my distressed'
mind and the joy its pages imparted to my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Dean.
meaux provided a remedy. It opened a pmspect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No peen.
niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I
am under to you for having been the means of ire•
parting to us the matters contained in' The Married
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' But fir
this, ere another year would have passed over my
head, in all human probability my wife would have
been in her grave. ILIA my children left motherless."

the obligations we feel ourselves antler to yon in hat
ing made known certain matters, contained in your
moat invaluable 'Married Woman's Private Medical
Companion.' It has been worth its weight in gold
to ine. If I express myself rather warmly, you will
see that I can not do an too warmly, when I inform
von of the extent to which I have, through it, been
Lenefited. I will state my situation when I obtained
your book thmugh the merest curiosity I look upon
it as one of the most fortunate events of my life. I
had been married some ten years, end was the father
of seven children. I was long straggling unceasingly
to the end that I might gain a moderate competency,
but the results of my utmost exertion. at the end left
me about where I was et the beginning of each year;
and dint only, with the most minted econnmv,
cing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this
constant effort wee beginning to have its effect upon
my health: I felt less capable to endure in continu
ance, while I felt the necessity of perseverance.
" Thin constant, unceasing struggle on my part was
imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi
tion of my wife (with occasional intermission) for six
years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of
coarse incapable of taking the charge and manage
moat of household affairs. He• condition arose fro,n
cantles of which I wan ignorant. Ohl what world
