MR. WILLIAM J. MCDERMOTT, A NEWSPAPER MAN OF ENGLISH, INDIANA, TESTIFIES TO THE POTENCY OF PINK PILLS
[From the News, Indianapolis, Indiana]
The following communication speaks for itself:
English, Ind., Sept. 7, 1896.
(To) Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, N. Y.
Gentlemen: My name is William J. McDermott. I am 45 years of age and a newspaper man by profession. Having been crippled by a gunshot wound of the foot, some of the charge still remaining in the limb, my habits were of the most sedentary kind. I soon became afflicted with piles of a most aggravative description, my digestion grew so impaired that I could not retain food upon my stomach, and eating was a dread-sick headache and nausea were constant, and in addition to these ills, I contracted rheumatism in its chronic form.
This was my condition for five years-so you may suppose my life was one of misery for I could get no relief from my ills, and I had very little hope of recovery, having tried every remedy in the whole pharmacopeia with no betterment of my condition.
Last March, by the advice of Dr. H. H. Sitser, I began to take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People.
