that I did not think to be able to
take any duties the next day, as
my voice was almost choked by
the cough. The same day I re
ceived an order from you for a
bottle of your Cough Remedy.
I at once procured a sample bot
tle and took about three doses of
the medicine. To my great relief
the cough and coldhad completely
disappeared and I was able to
preach three times on Easter Day.
I know that this rapid and ef
fective cure was due to your
Cough Remedy. I make this tes

thankful to have found such a
Godsent rsmeby. Respectfully
yours, E. A. Langfeldt, M. A.,
