I suptmscd that tills state of things was inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst. At this time (now nl>oul two months), I heard your took highly spoken of, as con taining some matters rebelling toy case. On t h receipt and perusal, I cannot express to you the relief It afforded my distressed mind, nna the joy lis pages imparted to ray wife, on learning thnt the great discovery of M. M.

No pecu niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I am under to you, for having boon the means of imparling to us the matters contained in "The Married woman's Private Medical Companion." But for this, ere another year would have passed over my head, in nil human probability my wile would have been in her grave and my children left motherless."
