JUST received, a fresh supply of the above useful
Medicine, direct from Dr. Lee's Dispensary
12th mo 30th, 1833. W. STABLER.
The following extract is published by Dr. Lee's au
thority, viz:—
Kxtract of a letter, written by a very respectable gen
tleman, residing in Baltimore, to the subscriber, who
deems it his duty, though unauthorized, to lay it be
fore the puhlic, withholding the writer’s name, for
particular reference, should any require it person
al|y- SAM. H. P. LEE.
Baltimore, August, 1828.
Doctor S. H. P. f ee, New London, Conn. •
Dkaii Sin—It is now upwards of twenty years that I
have used your New London Bdious Pills in my fami
ly* and always found them an efficient purgative in al
most every description of disease, and believe they sa
ved many a long doctor's bill by their early and timeh
use. I never found their accustomed certainty to vary
in their operation and effects until a few months past;
and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve
ry instance of using them, 1 begun to conclude that you
had made your foriune, and abandoned their manufac
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this
impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of
yours in a New Yorfc newspaper, designating spurious
imitations from your own manufacture, by having your
WKII I’KN SIGNATUBE to each bill of directions, *
and that in no instance were the imitations signed with
pen and ink, although a perfect copy in every other
respact. Finding those I had without this test, I be- 5
gauto suspect that “ all was not fair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe- ;
caries for your pills, with your written signature. 1 j.
found many without this test, but none with it, until I !
came to the Me*sra Keerls*, who assured me they had ! (
them direct from you. I procured a box, and on using ! (
them, found the same effects from them 1 had always -
experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my
idfin possession of a medicine 1 so highly piize, that
that I cannot, in justice, refrain from giving you this
X/* * o avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu- |
rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser has '
unly to examine the bill of directions covering each , j
box, and if signed at foot, in my own handwriting, irn- 3
mediately under my printed name, they are genuine, v
ind prepared by me; hut if osly tiie printed name is -
iflixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.
