I am forty years of age, and my oooupatien is that o f a map engraver. About fifteen #^-Indies-fine Shoes and Slippers at yeaM ago I* was attacked with what I gmall’s, in great variety. suppose was a disease o f the spine, could not walk erect, owing to a great weakness whioF\ I eiberienoed at the small o f my hack. My digestion bemime impaired, and by degrees my wh#le lys- tem became deranged. I suffered iu this way for seven years, and then placed my­ self in th# hands o f eminent physicians. They tmatod me with meicnry and many Qtffier stroiMi! remeffies, hut I grew worse instead o f better. In the spring o f 1857, there appeared upon my back and sid# two large abscess­ es, and at this time JC was also suffering from a very bad fistula; my whole ^ s - tem became utterly prostrated, when I was advised to try the.PiRUViAN S yrup . I commenced using it, and at once expe­ rienced great relief. I have taken three bdtties o f it, and every trace of my former .fiomplamta have left m i. Myayatemhai regained its strength, my appetite has returned, and I feel myself oomplstely renewed in age and vigor. In a word, my health is now perfect, and X can truly say that I was never, able to do more work, and with greater ease to myself- than at this, time. Yours respectfully, . J a h i s F . C ox .
