Better than She Expected.
Your letter received. In reply I am happy to
say that Parker’s Hair Balsam did much more*
for me than you said it would, or than I expec¬
ted. My hair has not only quit falling out, but the
bald spots are all covered, and all my hair has
grown thicker, softer and more lively than it
was before my sickness a year ago. Thank you
again and again. Extract r from letters^of Mrs.
R. W. T., West Fifty-third street, New York.

gratifying results. The first bottle relieved her
very much, and the second bottle has absolutely
cured her She has not had so good health for
