I wish to tell of the wonderful results
11 have received from your noted Swamp
Root. I am tifiy-eight year* of age, well
; and healthy to-day, but there has been a
; time in my life that I was all run down
'and worn out. My kidneys were in a
very bad condition, and I suffered from
I lame back. I have tried other remedies,
j but never got the results that I have re
! reived from Swamp-Root, and I honestly
believe that 1 owe my life to Dr. Kilmer'*
j Swamp-Root. I tell others that I cou d
not live without Swamp-Root in the
house, for when 1 feel tired and worn out
and my lack not feeling right. I take
Swamp-Root and 1 am feeling fine in a
few days. 1 heartily recommend Swamp
Root the world over.
Very truly yours,
