Philadelphia, November 5, 1880.
For the benefit of others who may suffer as
I have, I write to say, that on Thursday,
October 21st, I was attacked with the most
sovere and excruciating puins, (apparently
rheumatic or neuralgic,) on the left side ot
my neck aud head, accompanied with stiff
ness ot the muscles. The paroxysms of
pain would come at intervals of two or
three hours day and night, from which I
lost sleep and suffered intensely. After
trying various remedies- meal and hops,
belladonna plasters, erude petroleum and
turpentine, chloroform, liniment, etc.
without experiencing any apparent relief--having
seen your advertisement in one of
our daily papers I concluded on Sunday to
try St. Jacobs Oil, though not having much
faith in so called patent medicines. I was
presented with a Iwttle by a friend, to
whom I had stated my intentions, and to
sav that its action whs "nintrirul" Ho.-r mr
to me, convey whnt I would express It
whs simpiy wonoenui. Applied ami tlior
otifihlv rubbed in in rive minutes tlu nnr-
oxysms would stop so to express it, liko a
iian, ami ny constant application, tlie last
of which was Tuesday, 4 A. M., the pains
were entirely subdued, ami I have not had
a return of thtun. To snv I am Hmnkfitl
ami feel the greatest gratitude to God, and
throUL'll Him to man. for the menna nf nh.
taiuing such relief, is but feebly expressive
of inv feelings; and 1 deem it my duty to
let other know of, nud obtain relief from
the saiiie source.
