Baltimore, August, 1828
Doctor S. H. P. l.ix, New London, Conn.
Dear Sir —It is now upwards of twenty years that I
have used your New London Bilious 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. 1 never found their uncustomed 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, I began to conclude that you
had made your fortune, and abandoned their nmnufac
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this
impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of
yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious
imitations from your own manufacture, by having your
WRITTEN SIGNATURE to each hill of directions,
an t that in no instance were the imitations signed with
pen and ink, although a perfect copy in every other
respect Finding those I had without this test, I be
gan to suspect (hat il all was not fair in medicine, as
well as in politics, and called at si vend of our apothe
caries for your pills, with your written signature. I
found m*ny without this test, but none with it, until 1
came to the Messrs Keerls*, who assured me they had
them direct from you. I procured a box, and on using
them, found the same effects from them I had always
experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my
se^fin possession of a medicine I so highly prize, that
that 1 cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this
r.. n<> .M .r„ ..c ......
*'»ou8 imitations, as related above, the purchaser has
only to examine the bill of directions covering each
box, and if signed at foot, in my ow n handwriting, im
madi.-.tely under my printed name, they are genuine,
and prepared by me; but if ontr the printed name is
affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.
