For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, 1 da freely declare the following facts
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
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 I was ter
ribly troubled with cramps in my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my suffering s for so long a
time. I could do no business forthe last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's sl,cp 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 call and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can say
it has dove wonders on others around ale 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 tha land will be with
out it when they once know its rise.
1 - 11,NTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
I do hereby certify to the following facts :
That I have suffered for live years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
(lays only. Last Novembet 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 whit I have seen and
heard of its wondrous effects upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend it, 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. Cou'rs.
LEwis!rowis, March 1850.
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with o clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery
sipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Tet
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came ()limy 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.

tice., which made me ao nervous and restless as
to produce utter prostration. AII theseafHictions
increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January lost I sent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
that medical skill could suggest, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing warse,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as :sty dis
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
my pains severe; and,extremely debilitated, I
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly depression. My physician examined me,
anti informed me I had en 'thecae on the upper
part of my liver and lower part of one of lily lungs.
Notwithatending all thisskill. I grew worse, but
with the; tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to I, ave nothing undone, and called
to a consuoing physician, who fully concurred
with my own, and pronounced my case en ex
tremely critical one. He thought I was in iro
°linen' danger—saying my disease "was one the
is seldom it ever cured.'' All this time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing; expectora
ting from a pint to a quart of naucootae matter
Avery 21 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my diocese. At ibis stage
of my! !nese, my friend's in Bristol 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 hen
itated. My friends, however, insisting, I was
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of March, and
used aeveral 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 lie
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 t , health. I will fur
titer add, the t the consulting physician, seeing* he
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 was 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 months 53
pound'', and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in my power toconvey, in the
short space of this certificate, the convincing
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars
of the slynsizing afflictions through which I have
passed ; but to those who will tole the trouble to
call on me. at Bristol, opposite Pratt's hotel, I
shall take pleasure in detailing every particular.
In conclusion, I dc: n it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitory
itymploms of this fatal disease, not to delay one
hour, list to call upon Dr Schneck immediately-
Ilia skill in the treatment of this complaint, and
prompt detection of disease) ports of the lungs

miracu!ous cure, fully satisfiesme, that had I car

tical in regard to the virtues of a medicine when
first intrnduced. I
resisted the importunities' of
my friends till almost too late ; and yielded only
as a last resort, resolved to kill or cure." To
