CERTIFICATE.
The following communiqation addressed to the pro
prietor of Judkins’ Ointment, from the Hon. John Ta
liaferro, Member of Congress, is highly interesting. —
The gratuitous manner in which it is made, exhibits
feelings of no ordinary character towards suffering hu
manity; and is certainly well deserving of public at
tention:
Washiwotoit, Januav 21,1829
S1*-"It has been my wish, fora considerable time,
to communicate to you the good effect with which I
have used the Oimmeat invented by a Mr. Judkins
snd which I now understand is made and sold by
agents appointed by yourself, I have applied this
Ointment Juringthelast three years to every species
of tumor and wound, without failure to produce a cure
in every instance. I consider it the most decided and
efficient remedy in all cases of tumor, be the cause
whatit may; and I have found nothing so good for
wounds of any description It may be proper to
add, that the cure of a tumor called white swelling,
given over b\ the most listinguished physicians as in
curanic, and which they decul« d would, with hit amp
tation, prove fatal'o the patient, was, und iny inns
diale notice, effected by the use of Judkins’ Om.rr
and the patient is in fine health Hislimb affeci
the tumor being restored to a perfect state of

wounded, and exhibited one dreadfully ulcer*. ,
fice from the knee to the loot, and which, for
than two years, had been considered incurable, w
fcctually cured by the application of Ju Ixins’ O r.
raent. I mention these two cases, which fell under m.
immediate notice and management, as a decided evi
denceof the efficacy ofthis remedy in cases of tumor
and ofulcersi I have expe icnced, as decidedl), ihe
good effect ofthis remedy in the cure of Felons, and
of every species of fresh wound. It seems to me that

to wliicti the human frame is so direfully subject, un
der all their varied forms and names; as the Hygeian
conviction is, that man is subject to one otuyrttu
Disease,—that is, TO THE IMFURJII OF THE
BLOOD, -from whence springs every complaint that
can possibly assail his complicated frame; and thst it
is the perpetual struggle of this vital, pure stream of
life, (the gift of Almighty power) to disencumber it
self of its viscous, acrid humours, with which it has be
come commixed, through the negligence of parents;
the ignorance or maltreatment of the Doctors; or the
vicious or gormandising propensities of Ui all.
This vali Me Medicine, being composed only of
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on oath, as containing not me particle of mercurial,
mineral, nr chemical substance*, (all of which are un
congenial to the nature of man, and therefore destruc

produced by the least trouble to the patients, by

being called a few extra times to the purposes of eva
cuatiougtrilh the least possible sensation of pain, or
exhaustion of bodily strength, and without the fear of
catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustom* d habits.
These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to

human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the
faci; and extensive use of them has already verified
its truth in this country.
