The well merited celebrity of Dr. de Jongh's Oil is attested by its extensive use in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Italy, by numerouss pontaneous testimonials from eminent mem bers of the faculty and scientific chemists of European reputation, and since its introduction into this country, by the marked confi- dence, as well as great success, with which it has been prescribed by medical practitioners. In many instances where other kinds of Cod Liver Oil have been taken with little or no benefit, it has produced mostimme- diate relief, arrested disease, and restored health. SELECT M EDICAL OPINIONS:— A. B. GRANVILLE, HsQ, M.D., F.R.S., Author of The Spas of Germany" The Spas of England," On Sudden Death," <tc &-c. Dr. Granville has used Dr. de Jongh's Light-Brown Cod Liver Oil extensively in his practice, and has found it not only effica- cious, but uniform in its qualities. He believes it to be preferable in many respects to Oils sold without the guarantee of such an authority as De Jongh. DR. GRANVILLB HAS FOUND THAT THIS PARTICULAR KIWD PRODUCES THK DESIRED EFFECT IN A SHORTER TIME THAN "OTHERS, AND THAT IT DOES NOT CAUSE THE NAUSEA AND INDIGESTION TOO OFTEN CONSEQUENT ON THE ADMINISTRA- TION OF THE PALE NEWFOUNDLAND OILS. The Oil being, more- over, much more palatable, Dr. Granville's patients havethem- selves expressed a preference for Dr. de Jongh's Light-Brown Cod Liver Oil. CHARLES COWAN, ESQ, M.D.,iL.R C S.E Senior Physician to the Jioyal Berkshire Hospital, Consulting Phy- sician to the, Reading Dispensary, Translator of "Louis on Phthisis," ft-C. Dr. Cowan is glad to find that the Profession has some rea- sonable guarantee for a genuine article. The material now sold varies in almost every establishment where it is purchased, and a tendency to prefer a colourless and tasteless Oil, if not coun- teracted, will ultimately jeopardize the reputation of an un- questionably valuable addition to the Materia Medica. Dr Cowan wishes DR. DE JONGII every success in his meritorious undertaking.' C. RADCLYFFE HALL, ESQ., M D., F.R.C.P.E., Physician to the Torquay Hospitalfor Consumption, Torquay, Author of Essays on Pulmonary Tubercle" &c. "I have no hesitation in saying that I generally prefer your Cod Liver Oil for the following reasons :—I have found it to ) agree better with the digestive organs, especially in those pa- tients who consider themselves to be bilious; it seldom causes nausea or eructation; it is more palatable to most patients than the other kinds of Cod Liver Oil; it is stronger, and consequently a smaller dose is sufficient."
