To my certain knowledge, many cases of the following couiplaintH have been completely and Permanently Cured by the use of Ayer's nils alone : Third day chills, dumb ague, bilious fever, sick headache, rheumatism, flux, dys pepsia, constipation, and hard colds. I know that a moderate uso of Ayer'g Pills, continued for a few days or weeks, as the nature of the complaint required, w ould be found nn absolute cure for the disorders I have named above."
