Copy of a Letter from Mr. Thompson. Chemist, Liv-
erpool, dated August 20th, 1852.
To Professor Holloway,
Dcab Sin I am enabled to funiih you with a nost i
extraordinary cure effected by your iuvaluablo Dint-
annt and Pills; which has astonished every person nc i
uainted with tho sutrcrer. About II) years ago, Mr. !
W. Cummini. of Saltney Street, in tins town, was !
thrown from hia horse, whereby he received very leri- i
ous injuries a he had the best medical advice ut the !
ana wa alterwards an tntniate of diU'cicnt in
firmaries, yet he grew worse, and at last a malig
nant running ulcer soli led in his hip, which so
completely crippled hun, (hat he could not move with
out crutches for nearly 10 years ( recently he began to
uit your Ointment an"l Pills, which have now healed
Ihe wound, strengthened hi limb, and enabled him to
dispense with his crutches, so that ho can walk Willi
the greatest ease, and with renewed health ami vigour.

A MOST EXTRAORDINARY CI' UK OK A
DREADFUL SKIN DISEASE WHKX ALL
MEDICAL AID HAD FAILED.
Copy of a Letter from Mr. Hint, Draper, of Ready,
near Gainsbro', dated Match 1st,
Te professor Holloway,
Ria -Soma time since, one of my children was af
flicted with dreadful eruptions over Ihe body and
limbs. I obtained the advice of several eminent Sur-
geona and Physicians, by all of whom the raao was i
considered hopeless. At length I tried your Ointment I
aad Pills, and without exaggeration, the effect was uii-!
raculous, for by persvering in their use, all the orup- i
tions quickly disappeared, and the child was restored '
to parted heath. I
I previously lost a child from a similar co mplaint.'
and I firmly believe, had I in her case adopt rd your!
( eaedieines sha would hav been saved also. 1 slia II be'
' happy to testify (be truth of this to any enquirer. I

To Professor Holloway,
Dear Sia, Among tho numerous cures effected hy

rapidly givingwayunderthesutferingsheendured. In !
this distressing condition she had recourse to your i
'Ointment and Pills, arid by the assistance of her
friends, was enabled to persevere in their u.-c, until she ,
received a perfect cure. We have ourselves boen

face, after aii other means had failed. Ho states that j
it is entirely by the use of your Ointment, and speaks
