Civil War Harper's Weekly, January 2, 1864

Harper's Weekly was published during the Civil War to keep the country informed on the critical events of the War. It contained fascinating first person reports of the battles and stunning illustrations drawn by eye-witnesses to the battles. Today, these newspapers serve as an incredible resource for those interested in this period of history.

"Joy to the World."

THE INTRODUCTION OF PERRY DAVIS' PAIN KILLER

To the stuttering humanity of this age, has relieved more pain and caused more real joy than any other one thing that can be named.

IT IS A "BALM FOR EVERY WOUND."

OUR FIRST PHYSICIANS USE, AND RECOMMEND ITS USE. The Apothecary finds it first among the medicines called for, and the Wholesale Druggist considers it a leading article of his trade. All the dealers in medicine speak alike in its favor; and its reputation as a medicine of great merit and virtue is fully and permanent established. A. N. WILLIAMS, Parkersburg, Va., one of the oldest and most respectable and reliable Druggists of Western Virginia, writes: "I can say of Perry Davis' Pain Killer what I could not say of many of the medicines of the day. In my trade it is a leading article. I sell largely of it, and it gives entire satisfaction to all. I would on no account be without it." JOHN PARKINS, Druggist, at Athens, Ohio, writes: "I sell considerable of Davis' Pain Killer in this place, and it is well liked and highly commended by all who use it." GEO. WILLIAMS, Druggist, at Hockingport, O., writes: "Perry Davis' Pain Killer is quite generally used by the inhabitants of our town and is much extolled. I think it the best medicine I have for the uses for which it is recommended."

Agents should be careful in directing their orders to us, as several small unprincipled imitators of our styles have sprung into existence lately, who copy our advertisements, and "promise" the same Premiums that we have "given agents" for years. Those parties can not fulfill those promises; consequently, agents can not be dealt with honorably by them. Those parties who advertise those Premiums require agents to send them from $40 to $50 in cash for their poor imitations before they can receive any thing. "We" do as we have done for years, present our customers with a Beautiful Gold or Silver "Hunting-Case Watch" on the spot, or send it with their "first order." No delay, no promises. We do it, and guarantee all our watches as perfect time-keepers, OR REFUND THE MONEY AND PRESENT THE GOODS. Agents will notice that our Prize Packages must be of extra quality, and meet with a ready sale, or they would not be imitated. We are the sole importers of the beautiful watches we present to agents, and no other houses have them. Look at the list of articles contained in each one of our popular, unexcelled, and valuable extra large size STATIONERY, RECIPE, and YANKEE NOTION PRIZE PACKAGES. Fine Writing Materials, such as Paper, Pens, Pencils, Envelopes, Blotters, Beautiful Emblems, Ladies' Fashion Plates, Designs for Needlework, Cottage Keepsakes, Household Companions, Camp Companions (for Soldiers), Parlor Amusements, Letter Writer's Guide, Medical Preparations, Many Ways to Get Rich, Likenesses of Military Heroes, Union Designs, Gents' Pocket Calendars for 1S64, YANKEE NOTIONS of all kinds, rich and costly Presents of Fashionable Jewelry, Rare Recipes, Games, Army Advice, &c., &c., &c, the whole worth, if bought separately, many dollars.
