AW OTHER WOITBEltrUli CHTRTJf Philadelphia, April 9, 1846. Last Airgust a year, \ caught a violent cold, in consequence of getting wet in a shower of rain. A circumstance so common gave me no immediate concern, supposing that I should soon gel rtd of it., On the contrary, however, I daily grew worse, a violent cough set in, then pain in my breast and between my shoulders. I now suffered great op pression from the great secretion of purulent mat ter in my lungs. I became greatly alarmed ; and my friends considered my situation extremely critical, the more so as loss of appetite, hectic fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak as a child, and at night the sweat literally poured off me ! This was my condition when 1 commenced using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex perienced so much benefit that I resolved to con tinue it. It is now six months since I ceased using the medicine, and the cure remains perfect. 1 firmly believe this medicine is far superior to everv other remedy for Consumption of the l-.ungs. J.

THESE Bitters are purely a vegetable com pound, and are offered to the public from principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic tion that they will be found a safe and sovereign ?einedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium >hantly tested, not only by some of the moat re sectable families and physicians in the State of I touth Carolina, who have furnished ample testi nony as to their decided excellence, but also by the proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom incident to that stubborn ahd distressing disease. They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to most oiher Biuers, of not proving injurious by con tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which accompany each bottle, may be given with entire safety to an iufant in the month. With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit ters. In the year 1838, when the cholera was in Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a servant to tlie city. On his return, he was suddenly attack ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so as to cause apprehension that he would expire in n short time, if medical aid could not be procured. I immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. I then continued to give it in Bmail doses, from two to three tea spoonsfnil, which resulted iu a happy re covery. Since then I have been using it constantly in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholera ?.i?\unain) wra*???****? oo/l in I every instance found it highly beneficial. Some constitutions, however, require much larger doses j than others. ^ D JENKIN8 ? Blujflon, 8. G., 1846. It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure that I take this method of giving my testimony of the great estimation which I entertain for your in valuable compounds In justice not only to the me dicine, but for the benefit of others who may be suf fering from the ssase malady,Dyspepsia, with which j I was for years afflicted, I Cael it a duty incumbent on me to stale that I am now restored to perfect health. When I commenced taking the Colleton Bitters it was ?s a last resort. My debility from in digestion was so great that a cure was looked upon as almost hapless. AAet taking it regularly and perseveringly for some lisse, my strength and di gestive powers wera eotbely restored. I have never taken a single does of any other medicine for more than five years past. I can now eat the richest food | without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have ?feo used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for tkolera i tfonlum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As a family I deem it invaluable, aud do con scientiously recommend iu A# M? K# 81. John's Colleton, S. C., December, 1845.
