Mrs. Joe Person. Kittrell, N.C.

Dear Madam:

I have been advised by friends to try your remedies for “Eczema” on the face, and I write to ask if you have a special treatment for it, and to beg your advice in the matter. The eruption began nearly seven years ago, and tho’ I have tried several Physicians and various remedies, it has

steadily grown worse. Til now I am quite disfigured; and annoyed by curious people’s questions. The “M.D’s” tell me it is caused by Uric acid poison and must be reached thro’ the blood, which I have vainly tried to do. Your remedies are sold in our town, but I thought perhaps you had a specific for this peculiar form of Eczema, and if so, I shall be pleased to try it. Enclosed please find stamp for reply at your earliest convenience, and oblige.

Yours very respectfully,
Mrs. M. Sue John
Bennettsville, S.C.
