this it a grave error. There it nothing

Dr. J. C. Avm.
Sir The Cherry Tectoral is much InquN
red after. Several of our best Physicians
have used it, three of them in their own case
and always with the happiest effects. Tun
numerous patent medicines always befor
them, lead to incredulity in regard to ciert
new remedy; and it is only after undoubted
evidence ofvHlue inany article, that anything
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of this combiua
tii 11 ol agents, (in iheChrry Pectoral) ptove4
beyond "avil by related trial under Iheirowa
observation, has compiled medical men l
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the bfsl general remedy weliave for
the Pulmonary Affections of this climate, at
the same time sed.itive and sxpujtoraut a
rare combination of pioperties.
In ho that it will prove itt own reward,
i subscribe myself.
Respectfully tour nbt.tcrvt.,

Dear Sir No one, no not one man, worn,
an, or child can be found to deny that lb
Cherry Pectoral is all that it claims lo be.
There is much used in Ibis vicinity although
noi known un'il recently. The couiiiiuuiiy
should know its virtues.

Dear Sir Ovrr application for the pwl
three years to my duties as an ad voca la brought
on some right months ago a severe irritutloi
of the bronchial tubes, which was a constaut
annoyance to me, and fust becoming a source
of great apprehension. Every remedy tried,
fuiled to even relieve me, till 1 tired your Cher
ry Pectoral. This has not O'lly lelicved tue,
but as I trust. wliolly cured me. 1 care noth
ing for the reputation of advocoting Patent
Mediciiies.aud this is at your service. I nhall
reccommend it to memliers ol the bar, and
others whom I may meet, laboring uudce
similar inlispoitioiis.
