This card depicts a young blonde-haired girl wearing a red dress with a blue sash sitting on a green chair while petting a small white goat. The caption reads "When I was given up to die, by the most skillful physicians, Parker's Tonic kept me alive and raised me up after everything else had failed. It is just as good for children. Try it and be convinced. The reverse of the card states Parker's Hair Balsam is much preferred to all similar articles on account of its exquisite perfume and superior cleanliness and purity. Also Parker's Tonic is the best cure for coughs and consumption and all diseases arising from defective nutrition, impure blood and exhaustion. As well as Hindercorns, which promptly removes all sorts of corns, bunions, warts, callouses and hinders their further growth. Presented by Hiscox and Co. 163 William Street, New York. more...
