with, 01 distort facts, nor qveistute (ijf Con.
victions. Judge then, w hether this is not the
medicine to trust when you must have relief
for the throat or lungs; juJgetoo, whetherev
ery family ought not to have it by them as a '
safeguard against the! everywhere prevailing
enemy, which steals with fatal frequency up. 1

Dr. J. C. Aver, .
Sir The Cherry Pectoral is much inqui- .
red after. Several of our be,st Physicians
have used it, three of them in their own cas ,
end always with the happiest ed'ects. The
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to iucredulity in reguid to every -new
remedy; and it is only after undoubted
evidence of value in any article, that anything ,
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of this-combina- -.
tion of agents, (intheChrry Pectoral) proved
beyond cavil by repeated trial under their own
observation, has compiled medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have fo r
the Pulmonary Alleclionsof 1 1 1 i climate, at
the same time sedative and expectorant a
rare combination of properties. ;
In hot that it will prove its own reward,
I subscribe myself.
Respectfully your obt. srvt.,

Dear Sir No one, nonolont man, worn--an,
or child can be found to deny thut the
Cherry Pectoral is all that it claims to be.
There is much used in this vicinity although
not known un'il recently. ; The community
should know iis virtues.
