Anti-bilious Pills,
WHICH have been attended with a degree
®f success highly grateful to the inven
tor's feelings in several parts of the Weft-In

particularly ") Baltimore, Petersburg, Rich,
mO»d, Norfolk, Edenton, Wilmington,Charlcf
ton, Shvanpah. &c. The testimony of a num
ber of persons in each of the above placet can be
adduced, who have reason to believe that a
tirselv ufa of th'i salutary remedy, has, under
Providence, prel'erved their lives when in the
raoft alarming circumstances.
of this conclusive nature fprak more in
favour of a medicine, than columns of pompous
eulogy, founded on mere aflerti-n, could do.
It is tint indeed presumptuously proposed as
an infallible cure, but the inventor has every
possible reason, which can result from extesfive
experience for believing that a dose «f these pills,
taken once every two weeks during the preva
lence of out annual bilious fevers, will prove an
infallible preventative ; and further, that in the
earlier ftagts of those diseases, their use wiH
Very generally succeed in restoring health and
frequently in cases eftecmed desperate and bey
sud the power of common remedies
The operation of these pills is perfeilly mild
and maybe used with fafety by psrfonsin ever
situation andofevtry^age.
They are excellently adapted to carry pff fu

to restore and amend the appetite ; to produce

Merer fails to remove a cold if taken on its firft
appearance. They are celebrated lor removing
habitual coftivenefs r fickncfs of the fteraach and
severe head-ache, and ought to be taken by all
perilous on a change of climate.
They have been found remaikably efficacious
