[Note: envelope is postmarked Rockford, IL and dated Jan 10]

Tontogany Dec 29
Mr Hollington


Mr Foote says that one of your daughters was afflicted with fits and as I was troubled with them for more than 20 years and done everything we could hear of, found nothing that done any good until I tried Dr S.A. Richmond, Samaritine Nervine and I think it has affected a perfect cure and I feel anxious that every one should give it a trial, you can get the medicine at West and Truax in Toledo but you better state the case and send right to the Doctor as there is other medicine that will be needed in a severe case
