BEWARE OF IMPOSITION.
SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC
OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
Prepared by C. HERSTOy S. near Frederick
town, Maryland.
KicianxB. Vi July 15, 1830.
rpiH E public will be pleased to understand that I was
A the original discoverer of Judkins' Ointment, and
•ole proprietor of the patent from September, 1817,
until the expiration of the same; but, having connect
ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commence meat, I
permitted the Ointment to bear hit name. The term
of the patent having expired oo tbe 26»h June, I hxve
made an improvement in the tame, and taken out a pa
tent thereon. N SHEPHERD.
$3“ Imposition having been practised upon the nub
lie bv a spurious article, bearing the name of “ Jud
kins’ Ointment.” the proprietor avails himself of tbe
authority granted to him in bis letters patent, now to
e*N the Ointment after his own name. Henceforth it
will be known by the name of
SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT
MENT, (formerly Judkin»\)
When I first made and prepared this Ointment, nnd
hsd. in several instances, experienced its good effects,
1 seat it to several physician*, with instructions in what
cases to apply It, who were of opinion that the Oint
ment would be a valuable public benefit. 1 concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hands, some of whom would probably undertake to
make it, and knowingthe difficulty of the process-ne
' vertheless, it might be progated in this adulterated si
tuation, as it might in some degree resemble the origi
nal —and in this way its good effects would be oblitera
ted. Unde^these considerations, I secured the origi
oa) and certain remedy for those obstinate diseases,
some of which have so long baffled the skill of me
dical science:
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore legs and ulcers oflong standing,
dd Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlythose
hardened tumors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulcerated cancers;
4th Felons; or what some oeople know by the name
of catarrhs, of every description.
Jth Rheumatic pains of the joints;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of all kinds. In this complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
out of water;
8th Chilblains or parts affected bv frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns and
■cal Js. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in a
For inflamed women** breasts and glandular swel
lings, it is superior to any me licine yet known to the
medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (as H does not contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay the patient liab'e to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand
iug Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the
external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious oi rotten, it will stop thnfMigressof the caries,
increase the quantity of discharge, remove the offen
sive smell, and ease the pains.
It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica
tion of forty, eight hours

Washikotow, Man. h 22. 1826
Sir—My son having been .ffl.oceil for five years
with white swelling, and having applied every reme
dy recommended by the most eminent ph\siciMis
within my reach without success. I at length nr<cured
one jug of Dr Judkins? Patent Specific (kntment and
nudr the application accord ng to tne directions ac
companying the vdntmeut, and stale, for the benefit
of the arHxted. that before one jug was used, a perfect
cure was .-fleeted. My son has enjoyed good health
ever since. 1 have no doubt that to the Ointment alone
he is indebted! for nothing else was used fur more
than nine months before the application of the Oint.
raent. Respectfully, Jons Cocks.

Mr. C He'stems—I deem it nroper to state, for the
benefit of the public, that, several years since, two o*
my childran were affee’ed with scald head of an inve
te-mte character. Mv family physician, Dr John T
Wilson, of Leesburg, Va. who was verjrskilful a.d ju
dicioua in his practice, id vain endeavored by every
means to effect a cure. At length Judkins* Ointment
was applied, and the affection was permanently reliev
ed. Very respectfully, vour obedient servant,

From ike Honorable John Taliaferro, Member of Con

Sia—-It has been my wish, fora considerable time,
to communicate to you the good effect with which 1
have used the Ointment invented by a Mr. Judkins,
and which I now understand is made and sold by
agents appointed by yourself, I have applied this
Ointment during the last three yeari to every species
of tumor and wiund, without failure to produce a cure
in every instance. I consider it the moat decided and
•Accent remedy in all eases of tumor, be the cause
« whatit mayt and I have found nothing to good for
wounds of nny description It may be proper to
add, that the cure of a tumor called white swelling,
given over by tbe moat distinguished physicians aa in
curable. and which they decided would, without ampu
Utioa, prove fatalto the patient, was, under my imme
diate notice, effected by the use of Judkins* Ointment,
and the patient is in fine health. Hia limb affected by
the tumor being restored to a perfectstate of sound
ness. A ho that the leg of an aged man which had been
wounded, and exhibited one dreadfully ulcerated sur
face from the knee to the foot, and which, for more
than two years, had been considered incurable, was ef
fectually cured by the application of Judkins* Oint
ment. I mention these two cases, whichfellunder my
immediate notice and management, aa a decided evi
dence of the efficacy of this remedy in esses of tumor

els, worms, scurvy, itchings of the skin, king^s •til,
and all cutaneous disorders; in short, every complaint
to which 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
Disease,—that is, TO THE IMPURITY OF THE
BLOOD, —from whence spring* every complaint that
can possibly assail his complicated frame; and that 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 us all.
This valuable Medicine, being composed only of
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on oath, as containing not one particle of mercurial,
mineral, or chemical substances, (all of which are un
congenial to the nature ol man, and therefore deatruc
live to the human frame,) is found to be perfectly
harmless to the most tender age or weakest frame, un
der every stage of human suffering; the most pi assnt
and benign in it operation, and at the same time the
most searching out the root of every, complaint, how
ever deep, and of performing a cure, that was ever
offered to the world. This wonderful effect, too, is
produced by the least trouble to the patients, by
merely swallowing • certain number of small pills, and
being called a few extra times to the purposes of eva
cuation, with the least possible sensation of pain, or
exhaustion of bodily strength, and without the tear of
catching cold, or attention to dresa or diet, in any way
different from their accustomed habits.
These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to
excess Experience, which is the touchstone of all
human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the
fset; and extensive use or them has already verified
its truth in this country.
These medicines cure by purging; and yet the weak,
the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, the delicate, are
in a few davs strengthened bv their operation, because
they clear the body of it* bad humour*, and invariably
procure sound deep- They are the safest and most
efficacious menicine to take to sea; preventing scurvy,
cosiiveness, &c.
The Vegetable Cleansing Powders are of great as
sistance to patients, and facilitate the evacuation of
bad humours; they soften, cleanse, and detach the
acrimonious phlegm; are cooling, and allay the thirst.
<'ne, two, or three powders may be taken throughout
the day, mixed in half a wine glass of water.
Extract of a Letter to Dr. Moat.
Sib: The motive which ha. induced me to writethis
letter to you, is, that I might be instrumental in the
recommendation of Morrison’s Universal Vegetable
Medicines to the afflicted, which, bv the Divine bless*
ing has cured me of-the Scarlet Fever. My case was
as follow*: Whilst returning f" *m Washington to Alex
andria, I was taken very ill, which obliged me, on my
arrival, to retire suddenly to bed, b.it could not sleep,
and the next day my throat became so much inflamed,
that 1 could *carcely swallow; and mv hcc, breast and
body, presented evident symptoms of the great dan
ger I was in, and I knew not what to d '; Calomel or
Merciry I abhorred as poison, and therefore desired
no assistance fr<.m the Druggist; but my mother, who
had experienced tin- good effect of the Hygeiao Pills
in a case or two of lipr own, most strenuously advised
me to try their virtue, which, with reluctance, l con
sented *o, and commenced Sy taki. g fight No 1 pills
at night, and eight No 2 the next morning and con
tinued taking, increasing daily, morning anil .veiling,
until l took sixteen No 2 at a time, which were dis
solved in water, as, by means of my *=ore throat, I could
not otherwise swallow them. ! confess the dose nude
me feel somewhat qualmish, 8»c ; but the pills «nd the
powders, of which I took one or two tea-spoonsful I a
day, operated well, and the final result was, that lieil
into a sound sleep, of which I bad been deprived, and
the next morning awoke in a state of perspiration, freed
from fever, cool and comfortable, and mv reason tfor
I had been deranged in mi(id) returned; and on lh».
9th day from the time 1 was first taken, 1 left my room,
and have ever since enjoyed better health than I did
before You have my leave to make wlut use you
please of this. I wish you success, and am, sir, your
obedient friend, MAItY ANN FOWLER.
