Dr, J. C. Aver,
Sir The Cherry Pectoral is much Inqtii
ted after. Several of our best Physicians
have used it, three of them in their own caso
and always with the happiest effects. The
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; and it is only after undoubted
evidence of value in any article, lhat anything
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of this combina
tion of agents, (in theClrrrr Pectoral) proved
beyond cavil by repealed trial under their own
observation, has compelled medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have fo r
the Pulmonary Affections of this climate, at
the same time sedative and expectorant a
rare combination of properties.
In hope lhat it will prove its own reward,
I subscribe myself.
Respectfully your obt. servt.,

Dear Sir No one, no not one man, wom
an, or child can le found to deny that tlw
Cherry Pectoral is all lhat it claims to be.
There is much used in this vicinity although
not known until recently. The community
should know its virtues.

Dear Sir Over application for the past
three years lo mv duties as an advocate brought
on some eight months ago a severe irritation
of the bronchial tubes, which was a constant
annoyance to me, and fast becoming a sou re 0
or great apprehension. Every remedy tried,
failed to even relieve me.till I used your Cher
ry Pectoral. This has not ouly relieved me,
but as I trust. wholly cured me. 1 care noth

Medicines. ami this is at your service. I shall
reccommend it to members ol tha bar, ami
others whom I mar meet, labortna under

have no hesitation in saying, that I regard
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral as decidedly the best
remedy within my knowledge lor the cure of
chronic bronchitis, coughs, and all diseases of
the lungs. M. A. Rust, M. D.
Montgomery, Ala., October 4, MM'J.
Dr. J. C. Ater, Sir: I have used yom ad
mirable compound extensively in my practice,
and find it to surpass, by far, anyothr reme
dy we have for curing diseases upon the lung.
Your obedient cen t., R, B. Joke, M. l.
What yet remains to convince, the most in
credulous lhat the Cherry Pectoral is all that
it purports to be, viz: an unequalled lemedial
iigent for all diseases of tbe throat and lunga.
I'lie experience of years, has proven it to r
such, and wesubmit-it 10 the peoplt, believ
ing that its virtue will fully maintain iu
