REMARKABLE CASE of BRONCHITIS and BRONCHIAL
ASTHMA. EXTRACT from the LETTER Of A- D-, a DIBSENTING MINISTER in the North, to MR. CONGREVE, bearing date September 27, 1883
[This patiunt, who does not wish his name and address to appear in print, says: “You may show them to any enquirer, and I will confirm my statement if needed.]
“I had a constitutional tendency to asthma from a boy. . . . Roughing it in the colopies, I became subject to sovero pains in the chest, and left for England with a sensation of great tightness and difficulty of broathing. Arriving in the old country, I found myself continually catching sovero colds. These became bronchial in character, and accompanied by that peculiar whistling with which asthmatics are familiar. The chest was so painful, and breathing so difficult, that when I awoke in the morning I felt as if I would like a knife to make an incision and let out the air. Soon I had miserable nights also. I consulted five doctors in all, and not ono gave me a hint which was of the slightest use. They told me I must leave the country, for this climate would novor do for me. I reluctantly propared to leave, and had arranged for my passage, when I caught my eye on your name, and the mention of your treatment, in Mr. Spurgeon's Almanack. I sent for your hook, and was convinced ; and, in short, I determined to give your medicino a trial.
“At this time I was suffering from a violent Cough. I had an engagement to preach on the Sunday, and was in terror at the prospect. I endeavoured to get a Postal Order to send you, but it being Saturday the office was closed. I was successful, however, in obtaining a small bottlo of your modicine of a druggist. I took two doses that night, and three the next day. Such relief was experienced that, returning by the train, i found myself saying, 'Eureka!'(I have found it). All thought of leaving England was from that day abandoned.
“I do not mean to say that I was instantly cured. The process was gradual. The early awaking in the morning, and tightness of chest, day by day vanished. In six months I considered myself cured; but, catching a chill, I was again threatened, but in a month was bettor. Then I entered again on the regular work of the ministry, and for a long time now have had no trouble with the disease. I keep your medicine by mo, and sometimes take a dose when threatened with cold, or on Sunday, to give me a good voice.
“I owo my deliverance from this terrible disease, and my restoration to usefulness, under God, to Mr. Congreve's medicine. I perform full Sunday work, and walk daily for miles in all weathers, and suffer no inconvenience."
CASE of a WELSH INDEPENDENT MINISTER. Rov. J. P. Davies wrote me in December of last year. He had suffered long with frequent spitting of blood, pains in the chest, and other symptoms. He continued under my advice until Juno, his strength increasing, cough diminishing, and general health steadily improving.
September 27 ho writos :—“I am glad to inform you that I have enjoyed splendid health. I got cold, howover, last wook, through getting wet to the skin, and have consequently had a slight relapse."
In a fortnight afterwards he writes :—“I havo rocovered from the relapse. There is something beyond imagination in your medicine. For 10 months before I consulted you I could hardly proach. Now it is a comfortable and easy thing.
“I am telling the Welsh papers that you are known to most of our loading ministers, and I shall feel it my duty to assist you in any way that I can.
