find a SURE CURE for CONSUMPTION, ASTHMA, BRONCHITIS, &c. The only object of the
advertiser in sending the Prescription is to benefit the afflicted, and spread
information which he conceives to be invaluable, and he hopes every sufferer
will try his remedy, as it will cost them nothing, and may prove a blessing.
