Dear Sir,-I have very great pleasure in highly recom- mending; your valuable remedy for fits. Three years ago I was looked upon by all who new we as incurable, and naturally, of course, I had resigived to my fate that I should end my life as a martyr to them. I tried several skiiful medical men. but all seemed of no avail, and the (serious malady seemed to be increasing. I often had two fits during one nijfht. ° About three years ago I was recommended to try vour remedy, and during the whole of the time I was under your treatment I only had three fits. I am now qnite recovered, and hope that I mav Jong cniov tny restoration to health. I beg to remain, yours very gratefully, DAVID EVAN-, To Professor Kelly, Temple of Health, Aberdare.
