BT the Xew Tork Exhibition to the English or foreign
Sauce Manufacturers has been obtained, amongst numer
ous competitors, by LEA At PERRIXS, for their
whereby further testimony is afforded ot Its being the
best Sauce extant.
The celebrity of this Sauce has extended to every quar
ter of the globe, and Its efficacy in promoting tl e g -neral
health Is becoming dally moreobserved and aclaeirialged,
In the United States It Is held to be the most agreeable
condiment, and Is esteemed for Its tonic and Invigora
ting properties, Its habitual use enabling the stomach to
digest the food.
On the Continent of Europe, these qualities have been
testified to by a gjntleman, who writes to LEA St PER
RIXS thus: "Ihavecarrledabottle of your Worces
tershire Sance lnatourlhavo Just completed through
Spain and Portugal, and believe I owe my presentstate of
health to lbs use; your Sauce is stomachic, and I think
medicinal. I can with truth say there Is nothing In a
traveler'sbaggage so essential to his comfort, at least il
these countries, as vaur sauce. "
In India. a!o. where It is found at the mess of every
regiment, a medical gentleman writes frem Madras to
his brother In the same profession at Worcester, In the
following terms: '-Tell LEA St PKKBiKia mat tneir
Sanea fshlehlT improved In India, and that it Is, In my
opinion, the most palatable as well as the most whole
same Sauce made."
This Sauce is suitable for every variety of aisn, ana tne
nnivmal iiemand which its excellence has created has
led to many Imitations being offered to the public, under
a variety of names, but tbe genuine may aeanownoy
the names of "LEA it PERRIXS" being Impressed upon
