This medicine lias never been introduced
by empty puffs and misrepresentations, nor
is it intended that its present popularity shall
be sustained by any medium but its merits
and the approbation of the public.
I feel it a duty incumbent upon myself to
declare publicly the great blessing Dr. Mar
ehisrs Uterine Catholicon has proved to me.
For t o years my health was miserable; I
was almost unable to walk. Physicians pro
nounced my case falling of the womb, exten
aive ulcerations, commencing with flour al
bus. The pains, irritation, prostration, &c.,
rendered life a burden. In this miserable
condition, Dr. F. P. Newland recommended
Dr. Marcliisi's Uterine Catholicon. After ta
king four bottles I found myself in perfect
health. Gratitude for my restoration makes
me ardently desire that all my sex, a like
unfortunate, may find sure relief Irom this in

T. C. HAWKINS, M D.,
I must say, from my own experience and
personal observations in my practice, it has
proved to be the best and safest remedy lor
the difficulties for which it is recommended,
viz.: those of female weakness, such as Pro
lapsus Uteri, Flour Albus, and all irregular
