THE experience of past yeao having proved the ad- J. vantage, at this season, of acting upon the advice of the Faculty, in the substitution of Weak Brandy and Water, as an ordinary beverage, for Beer or other fer- mentable liquors, and at no greater cost, J. T. BETTS, JUN. & Co. trust that they need only to caution the public against any of the spurious articles offered for sale, being foisted upon consumers in lieu of their Patent Brandy; and at the same time, to refer to its superiority and economy for preserving fruit. protected against fraudulent sub- stitution, when sold in bottles, by 0BETTS'S PATENT BRANDY is being secured with the Patent Metallic Capsules, embossed with the words "BUTTS'S PATENT BRANDY, 7, SMITHFIELD BARS." Purchasers of bottles, at 3s. 6d. each, cannot be too particu- lar in observing that the Capsules are so embossed. This pure and healthful spirit is preferred by the highest Medical Authorities to any other; and is used, to the exclusion of Foreign Brandy, at St. Thomas's, Guy's, St. George's, the Westminster and other Hospitals; at the Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, and other Infirmaries; and, indeed, at the principal senative institutions through- out the country. Berrs's PATENT BRANDY may be obtained, in the Cipsuled Bottles, by way of sample, and at 18s. per gal- lon in bulk, of the most respectable Wine and Spirit Merchants, in every locality.
