Remarkable Cures!
Of all the cures that have yet been received, there are certainly none equal to the one first mentioned, which plainly shows the curability of consumption, even in some of its worst forms.
Jefferson County, Ia., Feb. 27, 1849.
Gents: This is to certify that my wife, Nancy Dohoney, has been in a declining state of health for the last two years. Her disease baffled the skill of the best medical aid I could procure—her physicians pronounced her disease “Consumption in the last stage,” and said that her recovery was past all human hopes. As a last resort, with very little hope, I procured Wister’s Balsam of Wild Cherry. After using a few bottles, I found, to my agreeable surprise, that here health was improving rapidly. She is now so far restored, as to be able to attend to her regular household duties without suffering any inconvenience. Her rapid movement and present health warrant me in the belief that she will soon be entirely restored.

State of Indiana, Jefferson Co.} ss.
I James M. Humphreys, a Justice of the Peace in and for said county and State, do certify that the above named Rhodes Dohoney subscribed and made oath to the foregoing certificate, before me, this 27th day of February, 1849.
