RODNEY, MISS., August 14, 1884.
Dear Sirs:—My course of treatment being almost all used, I feel it my duty to state to you my present condition, and I can say without hesitation that I am almost a new man, and I thank God that improvement has been so thorough and rapid, may it be but lasting. Sexual desire is now perfect, erections are perfect, emissions come at the right time, oozing of vital fluid at stools and in the urine has stopped, I rest well at night with the exception I shall state further on, appetite is good and digestion almost perfect. I can now approach the presence of the opposite sex with some satisfaction to myself; ambition is returning, and in fact a whole new lease of life seems suddenly to have been allotted to me. The varicocele has almost disappeared. I cannot say enough in praise for this beautiful little appliance, “the Cradle Compressor.” Now, if it were not for the urinary disorder which still remains, I should call myself well; that this remains, however, is no fault of the crayons, and could the Course No. 3 have reached me undamaged by heat, as did the Course No. 2, I have not the least doubt I should now be well. The symptoms of this disorder, still present, are dreams at night, not nervous ones as before, but still unpleasant; mucous oozing after straining, also in the morning on rising I find the lips of organ glued, and on forcing apart a drop of this mucous fluid makes its appearance. I have no doubt whatever that had crayons reached me perfectly, this disorder would have been conquered same as the other. Now, in your little circular you guarantee a cure “in all cases wherein your Medical Examiner decides a cure is possible.” Now this certainly holds good in my case. Please let me know what you are willing to do about the matter, for I certainly need another course of No. 3 crayons, and if you would furnish them in place of the ones destroyed in transit, I should consider your guarantee fulfilled. The course you sent me last could not be used at all; they were ten times worse than the first ones, and I only wasted them in trying to use same. However, do not send any crayons till you hear from me, and I think the weather cool enough, as they would only be wasted again. Could you furnish me, and at what price, a suspensory, such as you would recommend, if not, where could I get one? I think it advisable to wear one after laying aside the Compressor, as I have to be on my feet all the time.
Please excuse encroachment on your time and believe me ever,
Yours very truly, —— SINGER.
