J. W. Williamson of
Cairo, Ga., writes: “I
thought for some time I
would write to let you
know what Graybeard has
done for me. I was troubled
with risings or carbuncles
for eight years and notb
would do me any good. I
have lost as many as 35
days with only one of these
boils. I had a bad one when
I began to take Graybeard,
and two bottles stopped it.
and I have not had one
since, and this has been 3
years ago. The last year I
had one. and before I began
to take Graybeard I lost a
