"In the early part of last year I wrote to you for advice
for my daughter Alice, four years ot age. She has been a S
puny, sickly, ailing child since her birth. She hud con-
vulslons and catarrhal fevers. I was always doctoring (
until we commenced to use I'cruna. She grew strong and )
well. I'cruna Is a wonderful tonic; the best medicine I (
have ever used.
I was In a very wretched condition when I commenced
to take I'erunn. I had catarrh all through my whole body,
but thank (Jod, your medicine set me all right. I would
not have any other medicine.
Pcruna cured my baby hoy of a very had spell of cold
and lever. He Is a big healthy boy fifteen months old. I
have given him f'eruna off and on since he was born. I
think that Is why he Is so well. I cannot praise Pcruna
enough. We have not had a doctor since we began to use
Pcruna all praise to It. Mrs. Sehafer.
