What is that we call the Constitution ? The
constitution is evidently that which constitutes,
and that which constitutes is the blood. We, there
fore, know that the blood is the constitution and
that a good or bad constitution is neither more nor
less than a good or bad state of the blood. There is
no person who, having lost health, does not wish to
have it restored. Use then the proper means. Ex
pel with Purgative Medicine all currupt humors
from the body, and the blessing, Health, will be
the certain result: for all pains or unpleasant feel
ings proceed from the presence of corrupt or vi
tiated humors, which are the real cause of every
disease, and therefore the only disease to which the
human frame is subject, because they clog up the
veins and arteries, and prevent the free circulation
of the blood. , .
Brandretli's Vegetable Universal Pills cure this
disease: because they femove the corrupt or vi
tiated humors' by the stomach and bowels, leaving
the good humors to give life and health to the bo
dy. It is morally impossible that they can fail to
cure, nrovided Nature is not entirely exhausted.

Boct. Joseph Priestly Peters'
Celebrated Vegetable Antibilous Pills,
are daily effecting some of the mosl astonishing
and wonderful cures that have ever been known,
the town and country are Jilted with their praise,
the Palace and Poor-house alike echo with their vir
tues in all climates and under all temperatures
they still retain their wonderful virtues.
PETERS' VEGETABLE PILLS.
Breathes there the man who may not be occa-
sasionally benefited by the use of Peters1 Pills
No, assuredly not ; for the human frame, like any
other structure, will fall into confusion and ruin,
if neglected ; but. by the aid 6'f medicine judi
ciously applied, it is enabled to preserve a heal
thy and even tone; and it is the firt of well-tested
public opinion, that Dr. Peters' pills are the me
dicine of medicines in the prevention or cure c:
the general diseases which the human tenement
is incidental to.
Do men in robust health require medicine 1 Cer
tainly, for the very excess ol" health begets cer
tain diseases unless duly regulated. If the blood:
is suffered to run riot without correcting laxatives,
costiveness, megrin, biles, scurvy, spleen, pimples,
furred tongue, or offensive breath, are the inevita
ble consequences ; for exuberance of health, like
over-rich soil, becomes rank, and prone to the pro
duction of weeds, if care is not taken to have it
But healthy men have an antipathy to the very
name of medicine',! And no wonder, fb'r nineteeri
twentieths of all the medicines in the world com
mence operations by making the people very sick,
whom it was intended they should make very well;
and thus in most cases the cure is considered rather
worse than the disease. But Dr. Peters' Pills is
the celebrated and particular exception to this al
most universal rule. In them there is no gripe,
no nausea, no sickness of any kind; nay, they are
absolutelv very pleasant to the taste, and rest as
miintlv on the stomach as so many confits of green
peas, even when their operations are as sudden and
effective, as if they were as disagreeable and as
sickening as an old fashioned bolus. Thus the
man who uses Peters' Pills, and where is the
man that does not use them 1 expels headaches,
fevers, blue devils, blotches, pimples, &c. &c. and
makes his blood course as limpid and as genily
through his veins as a mountain rivulet, without
having put himself to any more inconvenience in
taking the medicine than he would have done in
swallowing so many black currants.
Should ladies take Dr. Peters' Pills 1 Doubt
lessly they should, for they not only assure them
ot health, complacency oi spirits, aim every wu
ily ctfmfort, but through their miraculous agency
in the Durification of the blood, speedily remove
every thing pertaining to harshness, pimples', or
casual scurvy, frOm the flesh, animates the eye,
and oives an elasticity and a vigor to the limbs,
and the general carriage ; and hence, when you
see a lady with a cheek of velvet softness, a pure
lilv and carnation complexion, and an easy & grace
ful hfinrincr. the general inference to be drawn is,
that she is her own physician, and very particular
in the choice of her medicine ; and tne especial
one, that she is a patron of Peters' Pills.
Leaving health out of the question, should poets,
novelists, editors machinists, ana men oi genius
and science in general, patronise Peters' Pills 1
Unquestionably, for the vigor which they impart
to the frame, exercises a most wholesome influ
ence upon the intellect : and the writer of this-
feels justified in saying, that any person about to
carry out an idea, whether of composition or in
vention, will have a more lucid understanding of
his subject, and think better and more to the point
on it, after he has vivified his system by a dose of
from one to four of Peters' pills- Persons in bu
siness, merchants, store keepers, clerks, specula
tors, &c. will derive great advantage ffdm them
on the same principle; for if the mind is not buoy
ant, no man can attend to the usual pursuits, of
life with due perspicuity, judgment, and pleasure
and there is nothing in the world, at least mat nas
been ever discovered, so efficient in brightening
the faculties, and freeing them from participating
in the languor, decay, and imperfectibilty of their
--v T- Ml
mortal abode as Dr. reters puis.
To what may be attributed these' singular and.
wonderful effects 1 Why, to their mysterious' and
inevitable action upon the chyle, and tnat particu
lar region of the system whenc6 the living fluid is
generated ; for thus the do not only purify the
blood, but create pure blOod, the issue of which is
healthy tfeins, arteries, and other functions, unob
scured vision, firm and pulpy flesh, smooth and
clear skin, and the consequent buoyancy of heart,
feeling, and action. In short, whether we taRe
them as a matter of health, business; feeling, or
personal appearance, there is none of us should
leave our houses without a regular supply of Pe

more prompt and efficacious; and I have had con
siderable experience in all these complaints
I would add that their mildness and certainty of
action render them a Safe and efficient purgative

The principle of purifying the body by purg-
in'g with vegetable physic is becoming more ari l
more understood as the only sensible method by
which sound health can be established. Hun
dreds of individuals have become convinced of
this" doctrine, and are daily aqkno'wledging the
practice to be ,the best ever discbVered. Now
is the unhealthy season w,h'erV bur bodies are
liable to be affected with disease; and now is
the tfme the slatp of the stomach and bowels
should be attended to, because on the healthy
state of those organs depends the healthy irtate
of the general systen; and every one will see ait
once,"if the general health be bad while that re
mains, local disease cannot be cirred.
All the medicine that is requisite to rsstoro
the body to a sfate of health is Brandreth's Veg"
etable Universal Pills, which have peffbrnied
cures upon thousands of helpless and hopeless
persons, after the usual scientific skill of phy-1
sicra'ns have consoled them wilh the assurance
that they could do no more. The properties of
these Pills as anti-bilious and aperient medicine
are unrivalled; all who use them r'6'commend
(hem, their virtues surpass all eulogy, and must
be used to be appreciated. The weak arnd del
icate will be strengthened by their use,- not by
bracing but by removing the cause of weakness,
the gross and corrupt humors of the body.
They require no change in diet of care of any
kind. Plain directions accompany each box,

cian. Remember,-norie are genuine sold by
