THR following testimonials of the superior efficacy
of the HYGKIAN MBDICINKS in the cure of
our diseases, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:—
Brows Usivehsitt, Dec. 25, 1813.
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the llvgeian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the Slate of Rhode
Sia—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com
pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a
brief statement of a core, which, I think, I received
from the Hygeian Medicines. 1 give publicity to the
same the more cheerfully, because thereby, perhaps,
I may be useful to some of my fellow-men, who may
be afflicted with a similar disease.
My complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption,
and that my real condition may be explicitly un ler
stoo l, I state, in connexion with the relation of the
• cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep
' tcmber, 1832, 1 caught a severe cold, which, settled on
my lungs; 1 was confined to my room about one week,
with a fever, attended with considerable cough; my
cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regaining
| tny health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of the night, having returned the evening be
fore in usual health, I found myself bleeding at the
lungs. I had not, to my knowledge, received any hurt
or strain, to which the cause of this might be attribut
ed. I spat blond, occasionally, for four days; it left
me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little ap
petite, and withal, very weak
A few weeks determined that I was in a decline I
received the attention of the most skilful Physicians,
who often seemed to check the progress of the dis
ease, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. Hut
rclupse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower
than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human skill,
and warn me of an approaching dissolution. Thus,
mouths after the first attack, a *' tubercle [small ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. I continued to decline twomontlis longer, when
I obtained the llygeian Medicines. I had n »w been
unable to sit up \ whole day, for four months ami a
half. My feet were cold and lifeless sleeti unsound,
cold night sweats constant, tongue furred, pulse in the
afternoon from seventy-five to one hundred per mi
nute, food produced great distress, appetite very
poor, pain in the breast directly opposite the heart,
attended with some cough, .Vc. kc. Such was my
condition, when I first became acquainted with the
llvgeian Medicines 1 commenced taking the medi
cines, four pills at a dose, and increased the close dai
ly, one up to the number of twelve- In about ten
days, my appetite became good, and foul produced
no distress, sleep soon became sound and refreshing,
and in about forty days the symptoms of the disease
had nearly all disappeared
I took the medicine sixty days regularly every night,
averaging about ten pills at a dose; the greatest num
ber taken at any one time was fifteen. After this, I
took about four closes a week, until I had taken about
thirteen hundred pill-, when I found myself restored
to health. After I commenced the llygeian, I took
no other medicine. One year from the first attack, I
was able to resume mv studies in college, where I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease. Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; and ii
in) strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain I
have less pains, and am more free from temporary
sickness, than at any time since my earliest recollec
tion. Yours, with respect,
I)n II. SHErHEABn Moat.
Dear Sir—1 wish to state that my sister, after severe
suffering, and employing a medical man three years,
was relieved by the use of the Universal Medicines.
Her complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her
side; indeed, to use her own expression, her .js on
one side had turned in, actually deformed. The pain
was a violent burning pain, almost intolerable; so see
vere, that she could not ait up for upwards of three
years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers o If, and
perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few,
doses of No. 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pills for
a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance in
their use, she is now restored to health; and I have
no objection to this case being made public for the
benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yuurs truly,
Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834
Injustice to Dr. M„ her medical adviser, when he
heard her improvement in health, he recommended
perseverence in the use of he medicines.
This valuable Medicine, being composed only of
vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted,
on oath, as containing not one particle of mercurial,
mineral, nr chemical substances, (all of which are un
congenial to the nature ol man, and therefore destruc
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 pleasant
and benign in its 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 a 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 fear of
catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustomi d habits.
These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to
excess Experience, which is the touchstone of all
human knowledge, lias long borne testimony to the
fact; and extensive use of 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 days strengthened by their operation, beca ise
they clear the body of its ba l humours, and invariably ■.
procure sound sleep. They are the safest and most j
efficacious inenicine to take to sea; preventing scurvy, j
costiveness, he.
The Vegetable Cleansing Powders are of great as j
sistance to patients, and facilitate the evacuation of

reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive
symptoms—oppression of the breast} greenish and

swollen feet and legs; and at last, in the lull posses

Doctor S. II. P. Lee, 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 everv description of disease, and believe they sa»
ved many a long doctor’s bill by their early and timely
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, I began to conclude that you
had made your lortune, and abandoned their manufac
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under (his
impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of
yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious
I imitations from your own manufacture, by having your
WRITTEN SIGNATURE 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
resp3Ct. Finding those I had without this test, I be
gan to 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. I
found many without this test, but none with it, until I
came to the Messrs Kcerls’, who assured ine they had
them direct from you. I procured a box, and on using
them, found the name effects from them I had always
experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding my
se> fin ssposseinn of a medicine I so highly prize, that
that I cannot, in justice, refrain from giving you this
To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu
rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser lias
only to examine the bill of directions covering each
box, and if signed at foot, in my own handwriting, im
mediately under my printed name, they are genuine,

call the Ointment after his own name. Henceforth it
will be known by the name of
MENT, (formerly Judkins'.)
When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and
had, in several instances, experienced its good effects,
I sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what
cases to apply it, who were of opinion that the Oint
ment would he a valuable public benefit. I concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hands, some of whom would probably undertake to
J make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process—ne
; vertheless, it might be progated in tins adulterated si.
| tuition, as it might in some degree resemble the origi
nal—and in this way its good etfects would he oblitera
ted Under these considerations, I secured the origi
nal and certain remedy for those obstinate disease*,
some of which have so long baffle 1 the skill of me
dical science:
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore legs and ulcers of long stan ling,
3d Scliirrus or glandular tumors, particularlythoa«
hardened tumors in women's breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulceiated cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people kno w by themme
of catarrhs, of every description.
1 5th llheumatic pains ofthe joints;
J 6th Sprains and bruises ofevery description,or in
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of all kinds, fn this complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
out or water?
I 8th Ohilblainsorpirtsiffected by frost.
1 It is also one of the best remedies for burns ami
scalds. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in a
short time.
For inflamed women’s breasts and glandular swel
lings, it is superior to any medicine yet known to the
medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (as it does not contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not
lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores of msny years stand
ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the
| external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious 01 rottcn.it will stop the progress of 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.

Sir—My son having been afflicted for five years
with white swelling, and having applied every reme
dy recommended by the most eminent physicians
within my reach without success, I at length procured
one jug of I)r Judkins’ Patent Specific Ointment, and
made the application according to the directions ac
companying the ointment, and state, for the benefit
of the afflicted, that before one jug was used, a perfect
cure was effected. My son lias enjoyed good health
eversince. I have no doubt that to the Ointment alone
he is indebted? for nothing else was used lor more
than nine months before the application of the Oint
ment. Kespeclfully, Joh* Cotas

my children were affected with scald hea J of an inve*

dicious in his practice, in vain endeavored by every
me ms to effect a cure- At length Judkins’ Ointment
was applied, and the affection was permanently reliev
ed. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

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 by the most listinguished physician* as in
curable, and whichth :y decided would, without ampu*
tation, prove fatalto the patient, was, under my imme
