This train of disorders has baflled the skill of rnedical
men in innumcrable inslanccs ; and patients. aQlicted
with dispepsia, jaundice, &c. have generally sunk at
I.ist in drep consumption.
The liver is the larpest gland in the human systein,
and the du performance of its omcc is indispensable to
perfcct health. It is in Ihe derangement of the func
ions of the liver that we must look for the Irst cauic
of digestive difficultics.
Tho numcrous diiSrtilties of the above class cannot
be curcd by emetics of cathartics alone. Thesemere
ly evacuate the more crude contents of the prima m,
but do not changc the irritability and morbid tendcncy
of theparts ; of coursc there is an immediatc rencwal
of the like ritiated sccretions, and with cvcry addition
al collection the strength of the patient is wajting!
Neithfrcan this great end be attained liy the use of
tonics, stnmach bitters, orardcnt spirjt.i. They give a
tnomentary appcarancc of strength, bat theV arfi gen
erally of decided injury to the patient.
The great and dislinguishing character of tbeseVE
cetable Pills is a property which unites with the
opcralive.lhe long soup ht for alterative prineiplc! a
'principle whicli corrects all those vitiated secretiuns
that cannot be wholly ehminated from the systcm by an
evacucnt medicine! a principle which rcstores tho
heattlij" energics of tb- system by cleansing'and invigo
rating the whole circulation from those impuritics which
secrctly fced the chrnnic complaints before noticed !
a principle which disposcs the stomach to receive. and
gives it strength to digest, a sufficicncy of nutiimout
for the duo support of. ihe system. 1
The use of Ihese Pills is a great prcvcntive of epl
demic conp'.aints, cipccially such as prevail in hotsea
sons ; viz. cholera morbus, bilious cholic, bilious and
typhus fever, and dysentery ; ai fhese complaints arw
chiefly excited by a rcdundant secrction of bile and a
