Agreeably to my

when fortunately an
old soldier friend
came-into the store
and recommended me
to use Roback's Bit
ters. I did so by tak
ing a small wine-glass
full just before each
meal, and to my great
joy I was relieved at
once, and am now
well by their use. I
would not be without
them at any price. I
have not taken any

I commenced using

will do all they are
recommended to do
