Dr. A. M. Afuuriceati:
"My wife ha* been perceptibly sinking for *omo three
yoorsor more, in consequence or her great anguish and
suffering some months before and during confinement;
every successive one more and more debilitated and
prostrated her, putting her life in imminent danger, and
Which was on the lust ocoas" JJ j4**p:iml of. I *upi*>*od
that this state of thli>ga was fuevitahlo, and n•signed
myself to mert the worst. At this time (now about two
months), I heard your book highly spoken of, as con
tidning snmo matters reaching my case. On its receipt
und perusal, I cannot express to you the relief It nfTonliNl
my distressed mind, and the Joy its page* Imparted to
m>- wife, ou learning that the great discovery of M. M
Jsesomenux provided a remedy. It OJVTKMI a prospect
to mo which I little ouaeelved was p**ibl\ No \ ecu
niary consideration cou ever repay tho obligations I am
under to you, fbr having been the means of Imparting to
w the matters contained in " The Married Woman a
Private Medical Oominion." But for tills, ere another
year would have passed over my head, In all human
probability my wile would have been In her grave and
my children IcA motherless."
In consequence of the universal popularity of the
work, as evideiioed by its extraordinary pale, various im
positions hero been attempted, HS well on booksellers as
*n tho public, by Imitations of title page, spurious edi
tions, and surreptitious Infringements of copyright, und
other devices and deceptions, it lias been foundtieccvanry

ous friends and all tbe world about Blaomg.

easiest and best fitting sails of Clothes that
have been turned out lately; and not only
that, but he will also do them up in the best

His shop is at the old stand, (i o o well

at all times be found, sealed upon tbe bench
of repentance, steadily drawing out the thread
of affliction, hopeing it may in the end prove
advantageous to him and his customers He
would also advise bis friends to bear in mind
that poor, afflicted tailors must live, or they
can't be expected to work. Therefore, Wheat,
Rye Corn, Oats, Potatoes, and with all now
