Gents: — ’ Tis with pleas­ ure I write to let you know what Eureka has done for me, and I deem it my duty to your medicine and the public. I have suffered* for over 20 years with kidney difficulty I suffered severe pain in my hack and could not lay on my right side in bed; my right limb pained me a great deal and the joints were badly swollen; had to get up several times during every night to urinate which had a deep sediment to it of brick color tinge. A friend persuaded me to Eureka, which I did with the following success. Before I had taken all the first bottle the pain had all left my hack and the swelling had all disappeared from my!limb,and 1 could go to try bed and sleeo all night without having to get up, and before I had taken but very little of the second bottle I could lay on either side in bed; was entirely free from pain and to-day am very happy to say I consider myself cured of the trouble I have so long suffered.. I recom ­ mend it to all ladies suffering with like com­ plaint,as physicians with which I have doctored told me my case had become chronic and in ­ curable. Respectfully, M rs . J ohn I. C lapper .
