JOHN S. T.oNOsmnE, M. D. From A, Woodward, M. D. of Penn. University, Philadelphia. It gives me pleasure to sdd toy testimony to the profeasional ahilily of the author of the "Medical Manual," Numerous casea of disease of the genital organs, some of them of long standing, have come under my notice, in which his skill lias been manifest in restoring to per fect health in some cases where the patient has been considered beyond medicul aid, la the treatment of seminal weakness, or disarrange mcnl of the functions produced by self-abuse or excess of venery, I do not know his superi or in tho piofcssion. I have been acquainted with Ihe outlior some thirty years, and deem it no more than justice to him as well as kindness to Ihe unfortunate victim of early Indiscretion to recommend him as one in wlioae profeasional skill ond integrity they may aafely confide themselves. . ALFRED WOODWARD, M. D. ••This is, without exception, tho most com prrhensive and intelligible work published of tl.e class of diseases of j which it treats. Avoi. ding all technical terms, it addresses itself to the icason of its retide-s It is freo front all objectionable matter, and no parent however fastidious eon object lo placing it in the ban d of his sans. The author has devoted many years to the trcatpront of the various complaints treated of, with too tittle breath to putr, and too little presumption to impose, he hasofll-red to the world, at the merely nominal price of 26 cents., the fruit of some twenty yeurs' most successful practice."—[Herald. •■No teacher or parent should be without theknowledge impaited in this valuable work. It would save years of pain, in rrtifirolion and sorrow to the youth under their charge.'' [People's Advocate. A Presbyterian clergyman in Ohio, writing of "Hunlcj's Medical Manual" says.—"Thou sands upon thousands of oar youth by evil ex ample, and influence of the passions, have been led into the habit of self-pollution, without re alizing the sin ond fearful consequences upon themselves and their posterity, The constitu* tions of thousand* who are raising families have been cnfceblej, if not broker, down and they do not know the cause or the cure. Any thing that can be dune eo to enlighten and in fluence the public mind us to check, arid ulti mately lo remove this wide spread source of human wretchedness, would confer Ihe greatest blessing next to the religion of Jesus Christ, on the present coining generation. Intemperance, or the use of intoxicating drinks, thoughTl has slain thousands upon Ihuusands, is not as great er scourge to the human race.
