Good Eyes in Two Weeks Dear Sirs:My purpose in writing you today is to inform you of the good effects which our son had while using Chamberlain's Salve. The boy is five years old and had trouble with his eyes for a long time. They were nearly always closed, and as his eyes got worse all the time we were compelled fco consult a doctor. He gave us a prescription, but instead of getting better the eyes got worse. The eyes were bleeding, and we decided to consult a specialist in Chicago, but with no better result. The boy had suffered with his eyes for four years and we feared he would never be any better. While at the store of A. K. Stewart, Rosenfeld, I saw your Chamberlain's Salve and learned that it was good for chronic sore eyes. I bought a box, and the remedy was so good that our boy had good eyes in two weeks time and could see much better than before. Frank A. Dyck, Rosenfeld, Man.
