many witnesses. The company did not ask me for this letter. I sent it to them last

might be cured. Get '5 Drops" and use it and it will cure you as it hbs cured me. I have
received many letters like yours, and it is a pleasure to me to answer all who write. Tell all
your neighbors what I have written about "5 Drops." I'know how to sympathize with those
