HENRY WILSON. WAIM'S PANACEA.—The following letter from Doctor John Howell, of Trenton, N. J., a regularly bred physi cian of scientific practice, will show his opinion of Swaim'e Panacea, and his desire that his name may be used to recom mend it: the testimony which he gives in the following cases cannot fail to be interesting. Mr Wm. Swaim, Dear Sir—I have just received your tetter of the 6th, re questing an answer respecting the cases of Pulmonary affec tions, &c. that 1 some time ago mentioned to you. I am sorry that I am not able to comply with your request, as I keep no regular docket or register that F can refer to for the treatment and symptoms. But as far as I can recollect, I am fully per suaded they were both in a very critical situation:—they com plained of great pain in the thorax, and difficulty of breathing; they both had a distressing cough and a free expectoration of mucus. But since they have commenced taking your Panacea, they have experienced a wonderful change; the pain in the thorax is better, the cough is not so troublesome, and the ex pectoration is lessened; they still continue the use of it, and I have no doubt, with attention to diet and dress, they will be restored. My son, who is afflicted with an Epilepsy,! must say, since he has commenced with your Panacea, has not had a single return of his fits, now more than five weeks; and since the commencement of his disease he has never before went over ten days without having them. And I can say, your medicine has done him more good than all that he has taken for the last three years. I have given him the two bottles that you sent me, and I should be glad to know if I must continue the use of it any longer, and if so, you will oblige me by sending another bottle, as I shall be directed altogether by your opin ion. Trenton, June 7th, 1827. it My son, a student of medicine, related a case to me tfcis morning of a black man, who.has had the King's Evil for four years, and is now cured by taking three bottles of your medi cine, as directed by my son. The black man is a laborer, living about five miles from this place. I give you full liberty to publish this letter, if you wish it— or as much of it. as you think proper. And if my name can be of any use in giving your Panacea that character which it deserves, you may use it with pleasure, and I shall ever fee! it my duty to recommend it to the public, as a safe and valu Yours, most respectfully, JOHN HOWELL, M. D., &c. QCJ* Sold in Wilmington at M. JOHNSON'S (Sole Agent) Drug and Medicinal Store, J\To. 90, Market Street. July, 1829.
