"Every spring and fall for eleven years,
I have been troubled with catarrh in my
throat and nose and hoarseness, and I am
very pleased to state that at last I found
a medicine, Peruna, from which I received ,
great benefit, and I will hereafter use and
recommend it I always keep it in my
house in case of sickness. I recommend
your medicine to all my friends and every
sufferer, as an excellent medicine for
colds and for building no strength.
We have many Swedish friends in Boston
who use Peruna and think a great deal of
it If all the Swedish people in this
country could know what an excellent
family medicine your Peruna is I ajn sure
they would keep It in the home."
