ANOTHER WONDERFUL CURE'
Piiii.AitKi.PHiA, April 9, 1^46.
Last Aiigust a year, 1 oaught a violent cold, in
consequence of getting Wf t jin a shower of rain.
A circumstance so common gavt me no ip)iuediate
concern, supposing that I should soon get rid of it.
On the contrary, however, 1 daily grew worse; a
violent cough set in, then pain in my breast and
between my shoulders. I now suttered great op
pression froin 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
I L'uvpr, and night sweats rendered me as weak as
a child, and at mg|i? ttye swpat 1/tcnjily punted o(f
me! This was my condition v-h^n Icnaimencp{i
using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of T#f 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 1 ceased usinjg,
tjie medicine, ahd the cure remains perfect. 1
ftrir.Iy believe this medicine is far superior to
every other remedy for Consjumptioi) of tfre 1.1]tigs

COLLETON BITTERS
npHESE Bittern arc purely a vegetable com
A. pound, and are offered to the public from
, principle of benevolence, under the fulled convic
tion that they will lie found a safe and sovereigu
emedy for Dy$/tepniit. They have been trium
diantly tested, not only by some of the most re
ntable families an.I physicians )n the fctatp of
?South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
mony as to their decided excellence, bht ulso by the
proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom
incident to that stubborn arid distressing disease.
They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to
most other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
ingredient, and, as seen froin the directions which
accompany each bottle, may he given with entire
safety to an infant in the mouth.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Hit
teis.
^ In the year IH.)8, when the cholera was in
Charleston, S. (/., 1 was compelled to send a servant
to the city. Ou his return, he win; suddenly attack
ed wiili moat vjiijeijt pain ju hjs bowels, so gmph so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire in a
short time, if medical aid could not Im procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
, ,?y? a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwipg
him at the same time into u profuse perspiration. I
then continual tp give ii in sni?U tjosjis, |Vom (tufj to
three tea spoonsful!, which rtwuhnd^u a happy re.
covery. Since then 1 have hoqii union it cmMantly
in my family, in cases of cholera nioibus, cholera
infantum, diarrhea and gener il deliihty, and in
I every instance found it highly beneficial. ?Some
constitutions, however, require much larger dose*

I It. is with feelings of grnliiude as well as pleasure
J that I take this method of giving my testimony o!
tlie great estimation whicfi I entertain f..r your in
valuable compound. In justice not only to the me
dicine, I<|||. for thfi benpfit of offers who may be suf
fering Irom the smne m?<i?ly,^vs|wpsia. wiih which
1 was for years afflicted, I feel it a duty ineuinheril
on me to state that f am now restored to perfect
health. When I commenced laking dm Cnllcton
I Bitters it was as a last resort. My debility from in
digestion f) sreai that a cqre WOS looked upon
as almost hopeless, takpig |t regularly and
| persevermgly lor spme time, my strength and di
j gestive powers wefe ei,jjrely restored. I have never
taken a single dose of any other m. dicjne for more
than live years past, 1 can now eat the richest food
without any unpleasant feeling* whatever, f have
also used Colleton Hitters freely in my family for
cholera infantum, cliolerti rnor/ju.t, general debility,
and as a tonic alter fever, with great success. As a

are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic

valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheumatism,

most decided character, and they have often been
