Indeed. Three or lour years ago I procured
a bottle of youi agent, and with It, cured
a horse ol lameness caused by a spavin. Last
season my horse became very lame and I
turned him out for a lew weeks when he became
better, but when 1 put hiraon therond
he grew worse, when discovered that a
was foi ming, I procured a bottle of Ken-dell's
Spavin Cure and with less than a bottle
cured him ho that he Is not lame, neither can
the bunch be found. Respectfully yours.

B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents: In justice to
you and myself, I think I ought to let you
know that I have removed two bono spavins
with Kendall's Spavin Cure,' one very large
one, don't know how long the spavin had
been there. I hnve owued the horse eight
months. It took me four months to take the
large one off and two for the small one. I have
used ten bottles. The horse Is entirely well,
not at all stitr, and no bunch to be seen or felt.
This is a wonderful medicine. It is a new thing
here, but If it does for all what It has done for
me its will be very great.
Respectlully yonis, Ciias. E. Pahkek.
