Letter From Sister-in-Law
Probably Saved His Life
During the month of November, 1908, |
I was taken with pains in the back, loins ,
and legs. 1 could not sleep, had no appc- j
tile, and if 1 stooped down I could not l
straighten up. For the pain in my back
1 tried several remedies of several doctors,
but of no avail. 1 could not get any relief. .
My wife's sister, Mrs. R. J. Black, 1424 j
So. Broad St., Philadelphia, Pa., wrote j
and advised me to try Dr. Kilmer's'.
Swamp-Root, that it had cured her and j
several others. I then wrote you for a
j sample bottle, which I received by return
mail. Even the .sample brought good \
j results. After taking the sample you
sent me I bought a small bottle and it j
j began to do mc good. I bought four bot?
tles, and to-day I am free from pains inj
' my back, loins and limbs, and sleep fine, |
leal good and my indigestion has gone
entirely, and I surely had a bad attack
of indigestion. I am not troubled with
I paihs in the back and limbs at all, and feel j
; like a new being, and I wish to state tli.it
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root cured me en-s
tirely of all those ailments.
