SCIRRHOS BREAST can be CURED
LET THE PUBLIC READ!
IN mercy to the afflicted, and the gratitude and high opin
ion I entertain of DR. MOSELEY as a Surgeon and Phy
sician, I deem it my duty to mention the case of my wife,
hoping at the same time that all persons similarly afflicted,
may be benefited by it. 111 the first part of this year, my
wife had several small lumps make their appearance in her
breast; they continued to increase in size, until the whole
breast became a diseased mass, and very painful. Iprocured
the best medical aid in the city of Rome,‘and notwithstanding
the earnest and faithful attention of our most skillful physi
cians, she continued to grow worse and worse, until they
gave the case up as incurable, and advised amputation. 1
was advised by many of my friends, to visit Dr. Moseley, of
Griffin, Ga., which I did, and, astonishing as it may seem,
he. had her entirely cured within one month, and she is non)
in f.rood health! 1 would advise all who arc afflicted with
Scirrhus, and Cancerous affections to visit the Doctor with
out delay, as I am satisfied by experience and observation
that he is the most skillful physician in the Southern States,
in the treatment of that horrible disease—cancer.
