i in on with a great many person*, had against all manner of patent
medicine*, and a short tltne ago I commenced using your article ic
I text It lor myself.
| The result has boon so very satisfactory that I am very glad 1 did so
21 and in justice to you, as well iu? for the encouragement of others w In
I may he u* gray as 1 was, but who having my prejudice without in)
r&toon* for getting it aside, are unwilling to give your Restorative ?
f rial till they have further proof, and the best proof being ocular do
mumuration, I write you this letter, which yon ipay show to any
such, ftndglso direct them to me for further proof, who an) jn add oul
?->f the Nr. y. H'jre Raiting establishment every day.
My hair is iun/ its natural color, and much improved in appearand
every way, being gUguder Hint thicker, unit innch more healthy
looking. I am yours, ry*pt\ tfuliy,
