edies a few days ago, and hasten to return you
a unanimous expression in regard to our high
opinion of the merits of tho same.
We have used them with great benefit in our
Company, and heartily attest to the public opin

cially where there have been so many groat
changes as from the civilian in daily routine, in
business, at homo, to the exposed habits of ac
tive soldiers in a strange and unnatural country,
do we most approciate the merits of such Heav-
en-sont values as yours. To all those in our po
sition do we most emphatically recommend your
remedies, being assured, from experience, that
they will be a very welcome companion.
Yours, very truly, Joseph A. Andrew,
