PAGE WOODCOCK'S WIND PILLS

MANCHESTER, June 13th, 1877. TO MR. PAGD D. WOODCOCK.

SIR,- I have found your Pills an excellent preparation for the Constipation and Flatulency so common in both sexes. They possess great advantages over other Pills. Their uniformity in strength, the smallness of the dose, and the certainty

of their action, commend

them to those who require a Tonic to assist digestion, relieve Wind in the stomach, exert a special influence on the Livor, and also the peristaltic motion of the Bowels, resulting from Chronic Indigestion and lack of Assimilation. The more my experience in their varied applicability extends, the more their beneficial effects appear, and many households have found a great friend in your preparation, for the promotion of a healthy digestion. Their favourable action are all that could be wished for.

I am, faithfully yours, THOS. FOSTER KER, Surgeon. Or a Moletno Vendors at 1/1$ and 9/8.
