it contains an

From the fact, that the alfection when re
moved by it, is not liable to return, as
when treated by quinine & other remedies.
A single chose of this medicine which
costs but two, or three cents, will oftener
succeed, in thoroughly eradicating this
troublesome affection from the system, than
it will fail to do so.
