fo?owiwg; statement of Dr. Anthon of his
f^y interviews with John C. Colt, during the
Ejew 'lays of his existence, is copied from the
Ij?ifTcial Advertiser of yesterday. It has a
*\tDi painful interest. It is prefaced by the
gJ>:fir.ark that the writer called upon Colt at.

W ko.nt.sday. Nov. 16.
At half past 10 o'clock this morning 1 went to the prison,
and on entering was informed by one of the door keej en
that two ministers of another denomination were desir ins
of an interview with Mr. Colt. He asked if I had seen
either of them, and seemed to wish my opinion as lo the
propriety of their admission to tbe coll. 1 said in reply that
I had not seen either of tbe gentlemen?that I came at Mr.
Colt's request, and thai it was for him to decide, I thought,
whether others should be admitted. While an officer went
to apprize him that I was there, another individual asked
me if I bad any apprehensions a.? to bis committing suicide.
1 observed that such an apprehension had not crossed my
mind since I had seen bim. ai.d that such a result, in my
judgement, in the prisoner's pre-ent frame, was not to be
expected. 1 then passed into tbe cell. Mr. Colt extended
to me bisband, and saying to him. " God be with you, Sir,"
I apologized for being somewhat behind the hour appoint?
ed. He replied that such apology was uuc. cessary, and as
soon as I s--nu*d myself, took a letter from his ubi*, :;::d
a-ked me if I knew a clergyman named James.
I replied, not personally, but by reputation; that I be?
lieved he belonged .to the Presbyterian denomination and
was of highly re-pectable character and .standing. He said
that he only wished to know inasmuch as Mr. James bad
written to him a very kind letter. 1 took occasion to men?
tion to him. what 1 understood was the desireof other eler
ical gentlemen to visit him, and that it was of course a
matter which he must decide. He said that he would ra?
mer decline the offer, lor the reasons which he had before
assigned, and objected to individuals coming there to as?
certain his views and afterward distorting them through
the press or the pulpit, and examining him on "doctrinal
"Now doctrinal points," I understood him to say, "have
nothing to do with my case." ?such n declaration startled
me. and I immediately said, " the first principles *nd doc
brines ol Christ certainly bear on your case! There are
cardinal, vital doctrines, the glory and life of the Gospel,
which, from what has passed between us, I have been led
to entertain the hope, would prove in this hour yourstay.
You mii-i have found them summed up m the visitation
office," taking up as 1 spoke the Prayer Book, which I had
lett with him, and repenting as I did"so the Apostles creed
?" here," said I, pointing to the creed in the morning ser?
vice; "here is a summary of the essential doctrines ot
Christianity, held to by other Christian denominations as
well ashy the church of which I am a in nister. A humble
and living faith in these we hold to be essential to salva?
He said very promptly, "Ob, 1 believe all these?I be?
lieve in Christ, and I do n't see how any man can do otlier
wise." He then proceeded tosjy to this effect, that the
' doctrinal points' to w hich he had reterred were certain
views in reference t? the sin of our first parents and predes.
tination. He protested his belief that our first parents hav?
ing fallen from God and corrupted themselves, nil who de?
scended from ihem must be corrupt?but his dis -t*lief that
our first parents' stu was our peisonal sin. Nor could he
subscribe to the views entertained on the subject of predes?
tination and reprobation, as held in tie.* denomination in
which he bad been educated; Man was accountable for
yielding to hia corrupt propensities?lor g.ving way lo
temptation?but that the .Son of God had died for original
jud actual transgression, anj that His atonement wnnld
avail the sinner wiio bad filth and applied it to his heart
and conscience.
The general te- or of his remarks at this point interested
me much. I can only attempt an outline. He held that
man was born with 'religious instincts.' He dwelt upon
the cas? of the savage believing in the Great Spirit, and
compared with him an individual living under the Gospel.
The errors and mistakes of man in religion proved him a
religious being. 1 could coincide with much dial he said
tin ibis hitler lopic, *nd when I referred in corroboration ol
bis remarks to the heathen system of religion, the r sacri?
fices. 4ic, 1 recollect his observation.. " Yes, seeking for
something not revealed to them bat to us?an atonement
(or sin." .Mr. Colt asked me several direct questions as to
human responsibility.and expressed it to be his lull convic?
tion lhat God would deal hereafter with every one accord
:ng lo his privileges, means and opponunities; that be was
a just God, and would do right. Among other questions he
said to tnr in ss-ords to till* effect. ?* Why, nu??, tak.? ttu
ca?e of a poor laborer, with a family ofchildren growing up
in want and withOUl'tbe means Of iystrucrion, and compare
it with your situation, sir, and your children, and do n't you
suppose that God will make allowances for one which he
wJD not lor tbe other? "
Alter some farther conversation on lhe.se topics, I turned
it to a point 00 which I was aware the community fell, as 1
did myself, a deep interest, and where they had a right lor
information if it could be obtained.
The Episcopal Church, in I he office lor the " Visitation
of Prisoners," requires her ministers' nlieran examination
of the individual concerning his laith and repentance; to ex?
hort him to a particular confession of the sin for which he
is condemned. 1 called Mr. Cull's nttenti *n 'o the rubric
on this subject, and found that be was nwart i its require?
ments; Reminding him then of Iba circumstances under
which we had first met. and ibe character and remits of
our interview, I appealed to him in the strongest and kind
est terms I was masler of. for the manifestation on his part,
of larther confidence. He met ihe. appeal as it was meant.
He solemnly declared that he committed the act in seb
" 1 have said so," said lie, " again and again, but where n
the use..' They will not believe it, they will not believe iL"
His face was covered with his handkerchief, and he wept
bitterly. His manner and words affected me deeply. 1
asked him alter a pause several questions. Among others
this?" Will you carry this as your confession to the bar ol
God?" He assured me solemnly that he was prepared so
10 do, and no! to die with a lie upon his lips. I inquired ot
bim," Taking your own account then to be the truth, do
you think God has dealt harshly with yon, under present
circumstances'" "No;" said he, " God has not done it.
Man has done it " 1 inquired ol him farther; " You declare
that you acted in self-defence. Still must you not feel dee;-,
sorrow and distress lor having hurried a fellow creature with
nut a moment's preparation into the presence of his God
and brought such wo upon bis family.'"' He assented with
much emotion. I told him that I was constrained to believe
be spoke the truth.
1 then prayed with bim?offered him again, after con?
cluding, a prayer which 1 had written out that morning,
and seveinl Scripture references, such as the six penitential
Psalms, fee. He thankfully accepted thfin. Rising to de?
part 1 quoted Matthew xi.*28, kc, and closed an interest?
ing though painful visit of one hour and a halt. I have
omitted to mention that Mr. Coll complained ol the course
taken by the press, especially the false nnd unwarrantable
statements of some of the "penny papers." 1 gave him
every ansurance that I was not the author, or responsible
for one jot or title, and begged of him not to look at anv
newspaper. I took his Bible as I left the cell ami put it into
his hands?" There,"said I, "my deer sir, is Heaven's best
gilt to one in your situation; read that, ami let lying ora?
cles alone."
Six o'clock, P. Af.?At the prisoner', request I was to re?
new my visit to-morrow morning. But upon reflection, and
for the purpose of ascertaining hi* determination in relation
to one point in particular, 1 repaired at this hourto his cell.
He seemed glad to see me, and Iiis attention was asked at
once to the matter on my mind. He was much atlected as
soon as 1 touched upon it?the situation of Iii? child and u?
mother. Upon my expressing a hope that he was ready to
repair to the utmost of his power the wrong done, he said,
" Oh, certainly, it was his wish," and when I added, " per?
haps you do not fully take mv meaning. Are you ready to
admit her to the rights of a wife ?" He gave his ready as?
sent, but added?"Perhaps his relatives ought to be asked.
Ha did not know what their feelings were," or words to
this effect. He then w ent on of his own accord to detail the
circumstances under which ibe acquaintance was formed.
spoke of-with kindness, nnd whenever he referred to
the child manifested great emotion. He promised to men?
tion the matter to his friends as soon as he had nn opportu?
nity. I prayed with him and bade bim farewell.
Thursday, November 17.
When I reached the prison at about a quarter past 11 to?
day, I was informed of a rumor being in circulation that the
Executive had respited the prisoner until January'- Think?
ing it very important to have certain information on this
point bt-lbre an interview with Colt, I called on Mr. Graham,
who coincided with me in opinion, and kindly accompanied
me lo the Sheriffs office. The result of an application lor
delay was made to us, and I was requested to communicate
it loMr. Colt, together with the request lhat he would fix
the hour on the morrow. Bet?re I reached his cell be had
been informed by some friends of tbe Governor's renewed
refusal to interfere. He grasped my band as I entered, and
we were both too much overcome to say a word. 1 prayed
at his side for some time, both audibly and silently, ana he
remained on his knees tor some mi uies after I had c nclu
ded. His acknowledgements of bis siufulnessand of his hope
tbat be wouid find mercy at his Heavenly Father's band to?
uts Saviour's sake, came unprompted and were humble and
To comfort him, I found myself unequal to any thing
more for a while than simply to repeal God's own assuran?
ces to the penitent and believing, from the holy volume,
and put up brief ejaculations lhat he would strengthen and
support my brother sinner in this hour ot hi* sore calamity.
Inexpressibly painful as this interview was. before it closed
I implored bim and adjured him as well as I was able, to tell
me once mere whether he would stand by his ackuowleoge
menu of yesterday touching the sad act for which he was
to suffer, as the truth, ihe wlio'e tre?i, and nothing but ihe
truih. " O, yes?yes." was his reply. " Can you, my dear
Sir," I asked, " throw anv more light upon what passed .'?
If so, confidn in me. 1 will do what I cao to have justice
donetoyour memorv." "No," said be, "Ihave nothing
more to add to what these letters contain," banding me at
the same time a printed copy, in an envelope, ol a paper,
called " Extra TatlW, Oct. 23, 13-12 ' When the sheriff and
another gentleman (1 believe Mr. Hart's brother) entered
the cell to announce, as it was their painful duty, his ap
proachmgend, "OMr. Hart, may God forgive you," I
think was the exclamation of the unlortunate man, as be
ibrew himself upon his face on his bed and wept
When asked at what hour.' u Let it be," said be," at the
setting of the sun." I did not remain very long after they
withdrew, as he had, as he said, letters lo write, and many
friends who wauld wish to see him, and roust for a time be
eft alone. 1 recollect well before wes- paraied how he look
bis handkerchief from his lace, and looking up with stream?
ing eves to Heavm, said, "Oh, I believe God-1 believe
?V u- ' ,for ,Jie Savior, forgive me." After again praying
wit.i him 1 bads him ta-ewell wub a promise to return on
l-ri-ay morning at 9 o'clock, lo be with him lrom 9 to 10 at
his own request.
Memorandum.-.Before I visited Mr. Colt Ibis day, I rode
o^ra'9,io my iriend the Rev. Dr. Smith. Rector of St.
Peter's, and hud ail my no;es before him, and asked bis ad

vice. He thought I ought to mention to the pr isoner the ap?
prehensions on the minds ot" some that be would commit
suicide, which 1 did at this point of the conversation ; and
told him solemnly if such an idea crossed his mind at any
time, to dismiss u at once as the delusion ot the adversary,
as he valued bu hopes of eternal salvation. He was much
aifected ai the lime, an l disavowed expressly all sucli in?
tention. Dr. Smith, so far as he could ;orm an opinion from
I my '? notes" ami conversation, encouraged me in the course
j 1 was adapting.
j We discussed for some time whether in what I supposed
J to be tbe prisoner's state of mind, ii was expedient that I
; should mention to bim the apprehension winch others en
i tertained of bis destroying himself. Atter much conversa?
tion wi h my reverend and dear friend we came to ihe con?
clusion that it was my dnty so to do. Again. I do not re
men, ber to have stated in my examination why I threw all
mention of Ibis mailer into the form of a memorandum and
not into the "notes of interviews." On Thursday night,
alter consulting with one in whose judgem-m I couid cox
tide, we came to the conclusion that in cas^ the prisoner
met his death according to the sentence of the law, and I
should deem ii my duty to lay before Ibe public these
"notes" as they wer- first written, it would be heiter, in
order lo spare ilV ft elings of survivor-, to avoid all mention
of my having made to btm this appeal.
The statement which follows, die public wiil bear in
mind', is founded upon a few notes in pencil taken hastily on
Friday, which I read at my examination before the inquest,
anci upon my SBbseqneut recollections of the events in the
prison, where I remained Irom 9 until 5 o'clock.
Friday, Nor. 18, 9 A. M.
When I reached the cell door, I staled to the officer on
doty that a< I was to he with the prisoner by his own ap?
pointment iroai 9 to 10, I begged that we might not be in?
terrupted, to wiiich he kindly consented. As 1 entered .Mr.
Colt advanced and received me in a manner so calm and
kind as affected me deeply. I cannot describe iL The re?
mains ol his breakfast he hastened to remove,and as 1 stood
opposite to him, before seating myself, he informed me that
Mis? Hensbaw would soon be present?of bis w;>h to have

to ttie prison, and would be there shortly.
tie -ai down on the loot of his bed, an l 1 drew a chair
near to it. He immediately handed tu me a small package
containing a- he -aid $000, and asked me to count it. I
opei.ed liie package so as to see thai it was a sum ;n gold
aud notes, and without c<milling it, took it in charge, saying
that 1 supposed u was correct. (The sum was subsequent?
ly counted in ihe presence ot witnesses, aud found to be
$25>t in American gold, and ihe remainder in notes of the
city banks.) He u.en showed me a receipt drawn ap by
himself to ihe above effect, and finding upon examination of
:t thai it referred to Miss Hensbaw a.? bis wedded wile. 1
advised bim ta defer the completing af lb is instrument until
she had beeom- so, and men nave my signature attested by
a competent witoess. lie acquiesced. (It was alterward
signed by me and attested by Mr. Payne.)
He men went on lo explain more lully bis wishes, and the
arrangements which he had made in the. matter? read a
letter winch be intended to give, as he said, " to Caroline "
?spoke ol both mother and child with deep emotion, and
said how anxious he was that the mother should leavi a vir?
tuous life, and ihe child be duly educated. Here it was. J
recollect, be gave bis views wiiti so much correctness, in my
opinion, of tbe mfldei.ee of ihe" associations ol h?me," in
training up children, that my feelings gave way. 1 ex?
pressed, 2? soon as 1 could, my thoughts ai seeing him so
disposed?my readiness to comply wiui his wish in refer?
ence to the marriage, and my hope that Ibis anxiety on Ids
part lo repair iu this matter wrong done w as evidence ot
sincere repentance. He at unce, andso cordially,responded
to my sentiments, that I was overpowered. I suggestrd
the propriety of bavins' ihe marriage over immediately, and
at his request knocked at the cell door to ascertain i: his
brother bad completed ihe arrangements. 1 understood
I,mi to say he bad gone lor Miss Henshawand witnesses.
Uui we could not make ourselves heaiU m consequence ol
die unlocking of several cell do r.-.
He observed ih.u ih?fy were ?? feeding the prisoners," .. e.
"giving ibem breakfast, and we must wait." A tittle cir
cuitistauceat mis time struck me as a proof uf bis coliecied
ncus. He had louciied lt:s face With nis hand as he seated
hanself, and happening to look at his hand and said? " 1
have somehow blackened my face." He examined him
?elt wuh a looking-glass,and either with bis handkerchief,
I or a towel, removed the stain. Finding thai we coul I not
make ourselves heard by knocking at Wir inner iron dour, 1
look up bis B.ble, as we resumed our seats, and remarked
mat he wnuld spe id, I hoped, the time until liiey came,
profitably, and inquired if mere was any pa.s?age in particu?
lar he w.stied to have read. My Object was to turn conver?
sation at 00C? into the only proper channel. He left tiie se?
lection to myself. The bible, J found on opening it, was
folded down at several places.
tine ol tbe first 1 struck upon was the I5:h of St. Luk*. I
dwelt tor a time upou the Brstsevenversese?thejoy in
ven over a. repeu ing sinner, lmrd bun again here ; and
l rJIstiwctly recollect, in the course of my remarks, touching
upon the situation of one in his terrible circumstances, hav?
ing a conscience cie.tr iroHi wihul blood-gudtioess,and u?k
mg bim again (a* I was silling uirectly in bum o; him.) If
it was so with bioisell; bla'protestations were the same us
tn-.-y had been; Several passages of Scripture caught my
eye is consequence of the. pages being turned down, ami
led to brief comments, just as my feelings prompted. I can
now recollect 2d Cornuhians, .r>tu chapter, 1st and 2d verses
?" For we know ii me earthly house of ibis tabernacle be
dissolved," Sec.?which led to his asking nie some questious
as to the resurrection ol tbe body, its identity, &c allot which
pomts(lhe difficulties as to a resurrecii n) he appeared fully
io accord wim me in sentiment, could he solved and dissi?
pated by simply recognizing lue power of God. At the
third verse, " ii so be thai being clothed upon we shall noi
be fcund naked," I now have it on my mind bow 1 struggled
lo find words simple yet strong to show bim how naked in?
deed is the sinner if be be u?t covered with the Son of
God's ngwieousii**ss, and atl was as pointed to bim by ques?
tion a> 1 was able.
The case ol" the blind man lieg ging of Jesus by the way?
side (Luke xvin, 35.) was also brought before this unfortun?
ate man,and iheon.y available plea ior acceptance in such an
hour?Mercy through the Saviour?urged I cannot tell bow
I ofieR, nor can I tell the effect produced upon me by bis
manner and his expressions at this interview. There seem-M
to be a load lilted iroin off me. If 1 mistake not, about 10,
or a little b fore, I knocked again at ibe door, ai his request,
or bis brother entered to make some inquiry. My recollec?
tion here is nut so clear. My pencil note, winch 1 made
some lime afterward, is as leliuws: ?' His Inoiher entering,
arrangements were made lo bring C. 11. and we letl the cell
togedier, Mr. ChIi w ishing io be alone. 1 am io wait until
his brotlier returns " The time intervening until t J o'clock
was passed by me in the galleries adjacent to the pi isoner's
cell, and in a vacant cell wtiicb ose ot ihe keepers allowed
me io occupy.
There was a great anxiety manifested by many individ?
uals as soon as thei first Interview ended, to learn from me
the unhappy man's behavior a-id slate ot mind, so lar as 1
could judge"; and I could not avoid expressing my humble
hope and belief, to such as accosted me, thai be w as pre?
pared to submit lo his sentence. About 12 o'clock, Mr.
Coli'? brother informed me that all the arrangements w ere
mad;- lor the marriage. 1 entered the cell again, and at
once proceeded wim ihe ceremony, several persons being
present as witnesses. I dwell nut upon the scene. When
felt wuh the parlies, I counseled, comforted ami prayed
with them. When 1 had concluded, he spoke to ht-r wnb
an intensity Of feeling respecting her future course ot life
aud the welfare of the child. Ills request lo be lei I alone
with Ins wife was indeed to nie a great relief.
1 think it w as uhout 1 P. M., when 1 was requested to ask
Mr. Samuel Colt if he had made arrangements to provide
for the interment. He came at my request to the vacant
cell, the third from bis brother1*, where I was sitting, and
upon my putting to him ibe.question he was completely
overcome, and exclaimed, "Ob, 1 did not think it would
come to this''?showing me thai until thai moment be en
tertained a hope ot his brother's reprieve. Finding that he
had made no arrangemei.ts, and mat he wished a place lor
temporary interment, to relieve bim from his agony I felt
no hesitation iu offering the temporary u-e of a vault at St.
."dark's ami ihe services ot the sexton. He referred me U?
Mr. Seiden, and aller conferring w uh that gentleman, the
necessary order was s<rm by me io Mr. Oisbruw.
It was, if I recollect, about half past 1, when the prisoner
again asked lu see me. As soon as I entered his cell axd
the door was closed, he advanced aud taking me by ibe
arm said. "Now let us pray." We knelt and first be poured
out (as it seemed to me) nis soul in prayer. 1 recollect that
Ins last word? were " Oh. my God, 1 come to thee." He sup?
plicated for bis wne, child, friends and enemte?. His ex?
pressions were without effort, tervent and touching. 1 can?
not say bow long he prayed. In conclusion he implored
God's blessing upon me, and all was asked through our
Lord aud Saviour. When he ended I prayed with rum. aud
when he rose from bis knees, ' I have asked," he ?aad, "for
I gave tbe signal at the door of tbe cell, and when it was
opened, and the w atch handed to bim, he asked to compare
me time with the sheriff's, and louna that it wanted 20
minutes of 2. "Now,' said he. " if any wish to bid tue
farewell let ibem come, as I wish lo be lelt alone?I wish to
pray." As they were entering, 1 took him by the hand and
hoped that he would meet me end with Christian fortitude,
anil saying so paused. '? Yes," said he, and bafore I relin?
quished his baud, 1 begged of him to leim upon the Savior
tor acceptance, and look lo Him, the Lord Jehovah, for
e vet lasting strength.
It was his request as we parted that 1 should come at four
o'clock. The intervening momenta were spent by me in
tbe adjacent eel'. About 20 minutes after 3 the Sheriff
came to me and observed to this effect, that there would be
but little light alter 4, and as some preparations were to be
mzde when lb* religh us services were ended in the pris?
oner's cell, he asked my opmion about shortening tbe time j
stated. It was agreed between us that the Sheriff sheuld j
give the signal a few minutes after I had been in thecelL I
At 4 the Sheriff caiied me. Tue public are informest nl- 1
ready ofwhat followed.
The prisoner, instead of dying as the sentence of the law
demanded,passed to his final account by laying violent
hands on himself.
I have nathing more to add, except to put up for my
readers and myself a prayer which is taught by the Chntcn
to which I belong to her people at the advent season just
?' Almighty God : Give us grace that we may cast away
the works ot darkness and put upon us tbe armor af light,

Christ came to visit us in great humility, that in tbe last

the old residents in that prirt of the city.
.Messrs. A. B. Sands k Co.. Sirs : * Mo-t gratefully do 1
embrace tbis opportunity for staling to yon U:e great relief
I obtained from the u-e or your Sarsaparilla. I slssll also
be happy, through you, to publish to all. who are adhered,
as I lately was, the account of my unexpected, and evan
for a long while despaired of cure. Mine is a painful story
and trying and sickening as is the narrative of it. for the
sale ot many who may be so surely relieved, I will briefly
vet accuraiely state it.
Nineteen years ago last April afitol sickness left me with
an Erysipeias eruption. Dropsical collections immediately
loo* place over the entire suriace of my body, causing such
an enlargement that it was necessary to add a half yard to
th--ize of my dresses around the wa;?L Next followed,
upon my limbs, ulcers, painful beyoBd description. For
years both in summer and winter, the only mitigation ?-i
my suffering was tou-d in pouring upon ttiose parts cold
water. From my limbs the paiu extended over my w hole
oody. 't here was litera ly tor me no rest, by day or by
night. Upon lying down these pains would shoot ihn'ugb
my system, and compel me arise, and, for hours together,
walk the house,so that I was almost entirely deprived ot
-leep. During this lime the Erysipelas continued active,
and the ulcers enlarged, and vi deeply have thvse eaten,
that for two and a half years they have been suln'ect to
bleeding. During these almost twenty years I have con?
sulted many physicians These have called my disease?
as it was attended with an obstinate cough, and a steady
and active pain in my side?a dropsical consumption : and
though they have been skilful practitioners, Uiey were
only able 10 afford my ca?e a partial and temporary relief.
I bad r*any other difficulties n o complicated to describe.
1 have also used many of the medicmess that have been
recommended as infallible cures lor this disease, yet these
all failed, and I was most emphatically growing worse. In
this critical condition, given up by friends, and expecting,
lor myself, relief only in death. 1 was by the timely inter?
position of a kiud Providence, mrnished with your, to iwe,
invaluable Sarsaparilla. A singl-.- bottle gave me an assur?
ance of health, wbich. for twenty years 1 nad not once leit.
Upon taking .the second, my" enlargement diminished,
ai.d in fusc/re daya .(rota the 8ih October, when I com?
menced taking your Sarsaparilla. I was able to enjoy
sleep andresi, by night, as relreshing as any I ever en?
joyed when in perfect Health. Besides, I was, in this short
time, relieved tmnj all those excrutiating and unalleviaitd
pains that had afflicted my days, as well as robbed in?o!
my night's repose. The ulcers upon my limbs are healed,
me Erysipelas cured, and my sire reduced nearly to my
former measure.
Thus much do I feel it a privilege to testify to the e?i
cacy of your health-restoring Sarsaparilla. A thousand
thanks, sirs, from one whose comfort arid whose hope ol
future health are due. under God, to your instrumentality.
And may the same Providence that directed me to your
aid, make you the happy and honored instruments of bless?
ing others, as diseased and despatriag as your much re?
lieved and very grateful Iriend.

Messrs. Sanci?Gentlemen : If you alone were con?
cerned in the preseot statement, the great inducement lor
making it would be removed; for of course no testimony
can strengthen your own convictioi.s in relation to the value
and ulieienoy ot your Sarsaparilla, which has already
proved soc.'i a blessing to the many hundreds who liuve
used iL But 1 have linked upon ihe. world encircling hi
us arms thousands bowed down with sufferings similar tw
my owu, w ho would gladly hasten to the same source that
restored my health, if ihey were persuaded ihey would
meet with the same happy results. Therefore, gentlemen,
it is that those thousand* may be convinced, ami profit by
their conviction as I have done, that induces me to state be.
fore the world a period of suffering such as few have
known, and the permanent relief I received from your
Saisaparilla. But how shall I begin, or how describe ihose
excruciating agonies that seizedupoo my frame r Early
in the month of June, 1840, 1 was tirsi attacked with rheu?
matism, caused, l have reason lo believe, by a severe cold
contracted while nursiug one of my children, who was Iben
very ill.
My suffering soon became intense, everywhere I seemed
diseased. For five months I was unable to walk, and for
six weeks did not lie upon u bed, but was obliged lo remain
is a sitting posture, that being less agonizing than any oth?
er. My whole body was so sore and racked with pain that
the slightest touch caused inexpressible distress. For a pe?
riod ol many months 1 dkl not sleep but two nights,and ihe
only rest I Obtained was during the day, when nature be
came exhausted and 1 fell into a slumber, from which I was
soon awakened by the beating and throbbing paia. My
limbs were swollen and my shoulders drawn out of place,
and altogether 1 was rendered entirely helpless. 1 obtained
the best medical advice, but without receiving any perma?
nent reliel. The rheumatism being combined with a swell?
ing and painful affectlono! the joints, rendered itsliii w?rse.
Tumors formed under the skin, round my bead, which
caused burning and lancialing paius similar t? scrofula ol
the glands.
My groans at night causod the watchman to stop in the
street n> lie passed by ; and when many of my friends re?
siding in Pougbkeepsie last visited me, ihey" bid me fare?
well, as they tken thought for ever; and once Ihe family as?
sembled in the room lo watch the last spark of liiego oul
Bui the flame of life again glared up within me ; and soon
after tbis I heard ol your Sarsaparilla. and determined to
try it; and behold the resulL After taking one bottle the
pain left me. and I was able lo walk and sleep. I could
scarcely realize the transition?so sudden, so complete. Al?
ter using four or five houles, I was entirely cured. And
are you alone, gentlemen, concerned lo know it.' 1 think
not; and this language is too mild for the occasion. For I
know- that the medicine that possesses the power to cure me
is capable of conferring the same blessing upon thousands
of oUiers suflering?perhaps dying ; therefore, these are nil
concerned to know that they can tie cured. In fact, all are
concerned hi the discovery of any thing that tends to pro
mute die happiness of the human race; tor we are social
brings, and cannot sutler alone. Persons may doubt this
statement If Ihey will, and go on ami suffer and die, I have
discharged a duty which I fell incumbent upon me in mak?
ing it known for die benefit of those who choose to believe
iL And when I look into the past?upon those solitary days
aui4 sleepless nights?1 thank Gcd that I am as I am. And
1 thank you, gentlemen, that vou have made science minis?
ter unto our infirmities, and f, for oae, will proclaim the
