creates the vitality that makes work easy. From the thousands of
grateful letters written by working girls to Mrs. Pinkham we quote
the following :
Dear Mrs. Pinkham : I feel it my duty to tell you the good Lydla
E. Pinkham 's Vegetable Compound and Blood Purifier have done for me.
Before I took them I was very nervous, had dull headaches, pains in back,
and monthlies were irregular. I had been to several doctors and they did
me no good.
Your medicine has made me well and strong. I can do most any kind of
work without complaint, and my periods are all right.
I am In better health than 1 ever was, and I know It is all due to your
remedies. I recommend your advice and medicine to all who suffer.
Miss Abby F. Barrows, Nelsonville, Athens Co., Ohio.
Oh, if American girls who work would only realize that they have but
one life to live, and make the most of. their precious health . and
Mrs. Pinkham extends to every working girl who is In ill health a
cordial Invitation to write her for advice. Such letters are always kept
strictly confidential, and from her vast experience Mrs. Pinkham prob
ably has the very knowledge that will help you and may save your life.
