They will CURE the above diseases in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred.
Induced by the extensive sale and universal popularity of Hoofland's German Bitters, (purely vegetable,) hosts of ignorant Quacks and unscrupulous adventurers, have opened upon suffering humanity the flood-gates of Nostrums in the shape of poor whiskey, vilely compounded with injurious drugs, and christened Tonics, Stomachics and Bitters.
Beware of the innumerable array of Alcoholic preparations in plethoric bottles and big bellied kegs, under the modest appellation of Bitters; which instead of curing, only aggravate disease, and leave the disappointed sufferer in despair.
Hooflands German Bitters are not a new and untried article, but have the test of fifty years trial by the American public: and their reputation and sale are not rivaled by any similar preparation. The proprietors have thousands of Letters from the
most eminent
Testifying of their own personal knowledge, to the beneficial effects and medical virtues of these Bitters.

Do you want something to Strengthen you?
Do you want a good Appetite?
Do you want to build up your Constitution?
Do you want to feel well?
Do you want to get rid of Nervousness?
Do you want Energy?
Do you want to Sleep well?
Do you want a brisk and vigorous feeling?
If you do, use Hoofland's GERMAN Bitters.

From J. Newton Brown, D. D., Editor of the Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge. Although not disposed to favor or recommend Patent Medicines in general, through distrust of their ingredients and effects; I yet know of no sufficient reason, why a man may not testify to the benefit he believes himself to have received from any simple preparation, in the hope that he may thus contribute to the benefit of others.
I do this the more readily in regard to Hoofland's German Bitters, prepared by Dr. C M. Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced against them for many years, under the impression that they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture. I am indebted to my friend Robert Shoemaker, Esq., for the removal of this prejudice by proper tests, and for encouragement to try then, when suffering from great and long continued debility. The use of three bottles of these Bitters, at the beginning of the present year, was followed by evident relief, and restoration to a degree of bodily and mental vigor which I had not felt for six mouths before, and had almost despaired of regaining. I therefore thank God and my friend for directing me in the use of them.
Philad'a, June 23, 1861. J. NEWTON BROWN.

From the Rev. Joseph H. Kennard, Pastor of the Tenth Baptist Church.
Dr. Jackson—Dear Sir: —I have been frequently requested to connect my name with commendations of different kinds of Medicines, but, regarding the practice as out of my appropriate sphere, I have in all cases declined ; but with a clear proof in various instances, and particularly in my own family, of the usefulness of Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters, I depart for once from my usual course, to express my full conviction that, for general debilitation of the system, and especially for Liver Complaint, it is a safe and valuable preparation. In some cases it may fail, but usually I doubt not it will be beneficial to those who suffer from the above causes.
Yours very respectfully.
Eighth below Coates st., Philad'a, Dec. 24th

From the Wife of Alderman Wunder, Germantown,
GERMANTOWN, June 1st, 1861.
DR. C. M. JACKSON—Sir:—It gave me pleasure two years ago, to give you a certificate, testifying what the German Bitters had done for me. I am now perfectly cured of all those diseases your medicine professes to cure, viz—Dyspepsia, Chronic and Nervous Debility, Disease of the Kidneys, &c. The powerful influence it exerts upon Nervous prostration is surprising. I have been consulted frequently in reference to your Bitters, and without hesitation, have recommended it for the above complaints, and in every instance it has effectually cured. Your medicine has a great reputation in Germantown, and is now sold in every Drug Store, and in most of the Grocery Stores here. If any one should question what I say here, let them come to Germantown, and I will prove to their satisfaction, that the Bitters have cured in this vicinity more than twenty cases of the above disease. Respectfully,
Main St., above Rittenhouse, Germantown, Pa.

Beware of Counterfeits. See that the Miniature of "C. M. JACKSON," on the wrapper of each bottle.
