" Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is a very fine
preparation indeed. It acts promptly in re
lieving the irritable cough and the feeling of
rawness and pains in the chest. In chronic
bronchitis I have found it of great value. It
diminishes the cough, promotes rest, and
relieves pain in the chest. In one case it
seemed to reduce the temperature a great
deal. I never noticed any injurious effects
from it. From a study of your formula and
from a clinical use of the preparation, I
believe you have a most excellent cough
remedy." Theodore Buehrinc, M.D.,
