It had helped my sister” “I was a sufferer for three years, not able to do my housework.  My husband was discouraged for I was no better and had the doctor all this time and nothing had helped me.  I was always sleepy, had no appetite and suffered with my left side.  My mother, in England, recommended Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound because it had helped my sister, so I have been taking it.  I am now able to do my housework and I cannot praise your Vegetable Compound too highly, as I have great hopes for the future.  I will tell anyone who writes to me what good it has done me.”  Mrs. Henry Masson, St. Henry P.O., Montreal.

Women’s troubles and women’s work” “I was weak and had some troubles women often have and usually I was unfit to do my work.  I saw your advertisement and decided to try Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.  I am very much pleased with the result and recommend your Vegetable Compound whenever I have a chance.”  Mrs. Wandless, 360 Church St., Fredericton, New Brunswick.
