Family Medicine Sure, No. 4$ Maiden Lane,
Sftm-York, a Freak Sapply of the following’ gen
uine medicines.
For the prevention and cure of Bilious and
Malignant Fevers, is ^recommended
THIS medicine has been at* -<ied witfi a de*
gree of succese highly gra* the ‘nventor’i*;
feelings, in several parts of uie West Indies
and me southvrosmd middle stages, particularly
inNewTi>rlt, Philadelphia, Rdtimore, Peters
burg, Richmond,‘Norfolk, Edenton, .Wilmington,
Charleston,* and Savannah. The testimony of a
number of persona in each of the above place,
can be adduced, who have reason to believes
that a timely uae of this salutary remedy has,
under providence, preserved their lives, when
in the most alarming circumstances.
Facts of this conclusive nature speak mofle in
favor of a medicine than columns of pompous
eulogy, founded on mere assertion.
It is not, indeed, presumptuously proposed as
an infalibile cure, but the inventor has every
possible reason that can result from ex
tensive expei ience, for believing that a dose of
rhese pills, taken once in eve. y two weeks, du
ping the prevalence of our UiMious fevers, will
trove an infallible preventative; and further,
that in the earlier stages of those diseases, their
use will very generally succeed in restoring
health, and frequently in csucs esteemed despe
rate, and beyond Uie power of common reme
The operation of these pills is perfectly mild.,
so as to he used by persons in every situation, and
of every age

perflu^ua bile, and prevent its morbid secretions;
to restore and amend tlie appetite; to produce a
tree perspiration, and thereby prevent colds
which are often of fatal consequences. A dose
never fails to remove a cold, if taken on its first
appearance. They are celebrated for removing
habitual costiveneGs, sickness at the stomach,
and severe head ache, and ought to be taken
by all persons on a change of climate.
They have been found remarkably efficacious
in piTventipg and curing disorder? attendant on
long voyages, and should be procured and care
fully preserved for use by every seaman
Which have cured an immensenymber of per
sons of both sex.es, of every age, and in ever}
situation, of various dangerous complaints ari
sing from worms, and from obstructions or foul
ness in the stomach or bowels.
This medians bears no analogy whatever to
others of similar titles so commonly complained
of, as operating with violence; on the contrary,
a particular excellence of this remedy is its
being suited to every age and constitution. It
contains nothing hut what is perfectly innocent,
and is so mild m its operation that it cannot in.
Cure the most delicate pregnant lady, or the ten

er is foul or offensive, and thereby prevent the
production of worms and many fatal disorders.
The lozenges are part icularly efficacious in car
rying tiff all gross humors and eruptions, feverish
and bilious complaints, and are the safest and
mildest purgative tliat can be used on any occa
A dose of this medicine given occasionally du
ing the warm season, will effectually prevent
“ the vomiting and purging of children”—a
dreadful disorder, which annually destroys thou
sands of die infant part of our citizens. It i
1 ike wise the mildest and most certain remedy
known, and has restored to health and strength
a great number when in an advanced stage of
this fatal complaint. Particular and plain in
struct ions arc given for every part of the neces
sary Uc*tm‘nt in such cases.
Children generally take this medicine with
eagerness ; having a pleasing appearance, and an
agreeable taste.
A safe and effectual remedy for rheumatisms
