A Soldier's letter to Professor
Holloway. The following letter is among the last received from the Army of Gen'l
Grant. It is only one of many hundreds of genuine letters which are kept on file
at the United States Agency for the sale of Holloway's Medicines, 80 Maiden
Lane, New York. CHATTANOOGA, Tenn, January 31st, 1864.
Professor Holloway, Sir—I have
used a few Boxes of your excellent Pills, and now I send money for two boxes. If
the sum is not the required amount, send me one box, and let me know what is the
required sum. I think if some of your circulars, &c., were here, there would be
a great many of the boys sending to you for Pills. The Army doctors are not the
best in the world. I am very respectfully yours. L. T. MULCREAN, 2d Minn. Vols.,

American Watches. The high
premium on gold, and the increased rate of duty on watches, have greatly
enhanced the cost of those of foreign manufacture, and it is now impossible to
purchase a good watch, of English or Swiss make, except at a very extravagant
price. For the same cause, the cheapest qualities of foreign make, the worthless
ancres and Lepines which flood the country, have nearly risen to the price at
which the American Watch Company furnish their well known "Wm. Ellery" watch—a
watch of the most substantial manufacture, and an accurate and durable
time-keeper. Our higher-priced watches are relatively still cheaper. We have
advanced the prices of our finer movements but about 25 per cent. since the war
began, while foreign watches of the same grade cost three times their ante-war
prices. Wholesale orders should be addressed to ROBBINS & APPLETON, Agents for
the AMERICAN WATCH CO., 182 Broadway, New York.
