THE following testimonials of the superior efficacy
of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of
our diseases, speak in a language which must carry
conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:—
Baows UmviasiTT, Dec. 25, 1813*
To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeian Vege
table Universal Medicines, for the State of Khode
Sia—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com
pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a
brief statement of a cure, which, I think, I received
from the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to the
same the more cheerfully; because thereby, perhaps,
I may be useful to some of my fel!ow-men, who may
be afflicted with a similar disease.
Mv complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption,
and that my real condition may bp explicitly unler
stool, 1 state, in connexion with the relation of the
cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep
tember, 1812,1 caught a severe cold, which settled on
my lungs; 1 was confined to my room about one week,
with a fever, attended with ennsi lerable cough; my
cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regaining
mv health; when, after about three weeks, in the
course of the night, having returned the evening be
fore in usual health, I found myself bleed'1 ng 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 blood, 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 1
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
relapse upon relap>e, and each bringing me lower
than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human skill,
and warn me of an approachftg dissolution. Thus,
months after the first attack, a •• tubercle” [small ul
cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, one
day. I continued to decline tw o months longer, when
I obtained the llygeian Medicines I had now been
unable to sit up a whole diy, for four months and a
half. My feet were cold and lifele-s sleen 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, ?tc. fcc. Such was my
condition, when I first became acquainted with the
llygeian Medicines- 1 commenced taking the medi
cines, four pills at a dose, and increased the dose dai
?y, one up to the number of twelve- In about ten
days, my appetite became good, and fo >«1 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 doses a week, until 1 had taken about
thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restored
to health. After ! commenced the llygeian, I took
no other medicine. One year from the first attack, I
w»s able lo resume my studies in cojlege, where I
have since remained without any recurrence of the
disease Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; and it
my strength is not yet fuliy returned, I am certain I
have less pains, and am more free from temporary
sidw^s, than at any time since my earliest recollec*
tisSPlf ours, with respect,
Dr H. Shei-hord Moat.
Dear Sir—l 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 is on
one sidfehad turned in, actually deformed The pain
was a viqfcnt burning p/in, almost intolerable; so aee
vete, that she could not ait up for upwards of three
years- It was occasioned by over-lacing hers p If, and
perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few,
doses of No. 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pills for
* dose, the pain decreased, and, by peraeverance in
th4HNe, 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, yours truly,
I.owcll, Massnchuretts, Feb. 8, 1834
Injustice to 1 Jr. it., her medical adviser, when he
heard her improvement in health, he recommended
persevcrence 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, or chemical substances, (all of which are un
congenial to the nature of man, and therefore deatrue
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 -asant
and benign in it operation, and at the same time the
most searching out the root of every complaint, how
ever deep, and of perfoiminga 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 ft&w 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, orattention to dress or diet, in any way
different from their accustom* d 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
fact; and extensive use of them has already verified
its truth in this country.
These medicines cure hy purging; and yet the weak,
the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, the delicate, are
in a few days strengthened by their operation, because
they clear the body of it* ba l humours, and invariably
procure sound sleep. They are the safest and most
efficacious tnenicine to take to sea; preventing scurvy,
coslivenes8, &c,
The Vegetable Cleansing Powders are of great as
sistance to patients, and facilitate the evacuation of
bad humours; they solten, cleanse, and detach the
acrimonious phlegm; are cooling, and allay the thirst.
One, two, or three powders may be taken throughout
the day, mixed in half a wine glass of water.

Baltimore, August, 1828.
Doctor S. H. P. Lee, New London, Conn.
Dear Sir—It is now upwards of twenty years that I
have used your New London Bdi ms Fills m my fami
ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al
most every description of disease, and uelievc they sa«
ved many a long doctor’s bill by their early and time))
use. 1 never found their accustomed certainty to vary
in their operation and elfects until a few m units past;
and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve
ry instance of using them, I began to conclude that you
bad made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac
ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under tli.s
impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of
yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious
l'llll«UUII9 IIVIII If; Having JUUl
Willi TEN SIGN ATUilE 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
respect. Finding those I had without this test, | be
gan to suspect (hat “ 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 mtny without this test, but none with it, until I
came to the Me-tsrs Keerls', who assured tne 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 iny
se> fm ssposseum of a medicine I so Highly prize, that
that 1 cannot, in justice, refrain from giving you this
tlj* To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu
rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser has
only to examine the Dili of directions covering each
box, and if signed at foot, in my own handwriting, im
mediately under my printed name, they are genuine,
and prepared by me; but if o*lt the printed name is
affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and
had, in several instances, experienced its good effect*,
I sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what
cases to apply it, who were of opinion that the Oint

that Hie Ointment would occasionally fall into many

make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process-ne

dical science:
1st White swellings of every description;
2d Sore legs and ulcers of long standing,
3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularly those
hardened tumors in women's breasts, which oftentimes
terminate in ulccialed cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people know by the name
' ofcatRrrhs, of every description.
5th Rheumatic pains ol the joints;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in
whatever part situate;
7th Tetters of all kinds. Inthis complaint the pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
outof water;
i 8th Chilblains or parts affected by frost.
It is also one of the heat remedies for burns and
scalds. It cases the pain and draws the fire out hi 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
plication!1, (as it does not contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it docs not
lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand
ing. Where it Is impossible or imprudent to heal the
external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious oi rottrn.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 FclnJs and Whitlows, on applica
tion of forty-eight hours.

Sir —My son having been afflicted for five years
witli 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 Dr Judkins' Patent Specif c Ointment, and
made the application according to the directions ac
companying the ointment, and state, for the benefit
of the afflicted that before one jog was used, a perf»-ct
cure was effected. My son has enjoyed good health
ever since. I have no doubt that to the Ointment alone
he is indebted; for nothing else was used for more
than nine mnn'lis before the application of the Oint
ment. Respectfully, John Couch
Dr. Win Uuiiton. Washington City.
