TO.THirT'UBLIC -I certify that be
fore my remembrance I became afflicted
with what the Physicians called scrvffula.
It made its first appearance by pain and
swelling of the joints more especially my
ankles, knees," - wrists and elbows, after
which the elans of my throat and neck be
erne ' inflamed and swelled, attended
with most excruciating pains. I was often
confined entirely to my bed, and for weeks
together could not move my neck or turn
my head. Several physicians attended me
at different times but they did not appear.
to do me any good.
. About a year ago I was attacked with
vomiting, which continued every few min
utes ail one night. The next day eruption
appeared on the side of my neck, which
son spread all over my neck, head and
face, with inflamation of my eyes and eye
lids, which destroyed my eye-lashes, and
caused the hair to fall from off my head,
and toon the disease spread all over me
my limbs were one' entire scab. I could
not bend my hands or arms without cans
ing the skin to erack open, when, the blood
would run out. - Some of my finger-nails
came off. ' In short, I was unable to get my
own living, and in this condition 1 called
upon Dr. Jayne. in order that be might un
dertake my case. He directed me to take
bis ,. Alterative three times a day, and bis
Sanative Pills as often as I should find it
accessary. 1 have now taken bis Altera
tive four months, and am most happy to say
uat u nas entirely cured me.
