of a bad ca-.e of ruDtur of
thirty yearV utanding, by one of your incomparable
Truijries, which I purchased from you three months
ao. J cannot describe the suffering, both pbytrfcaJly
and mentally, that I have undergone during that pe
riod; and now J feel like a new being1. I have worn
all kinds of Trusses, both Steel and hla-itic, and nev
er received any permanent relief until 1 tried yours.
Its Himplicity of construction, and facility with which
it can he adjusted, and the ease and perfect freedom
to the motions of the body with which it can be worn
without canning any irritation, are iU chief merit,
and it is a perfect supporter. I have not had any
sifn of a return of a Rupture since the first day I put
it on, and feel that I am PERFECTLY CURED. It is
invaluable, and the fact should be known to the
world. You can refer atiy one to me on the subject
of their merits. I am yours truly,

f aHCornia Elastic Truss Co:
After practicing medicine many years in this city,
during- which time I have had an extensive experience
in the application of all kinds of Trusses, 1 can ai:d
do recommend yours as the best in every respect, for
it is a? near perfection as modern science can make it.
It has many advantages over the torturing steel-hoop
Trusses, which inflict great injury on the hips and
spine, bringing on other distressing ailments, such as
lu nbago, morbid affections o the kidneys and numb
ness in the lower limbs, all of which are avoided by
wearing the California Elastic Truss. It is not only a
perfect retainer, combining ease and comfort, but the
pressure can be changed to any degree. It also re
mains in its proper place at all times, regardless of the
motions of the body, and is worn night and day with
perfect ease. It is suerior to any of the Elastic
Trusses now in the market, while it combines the
merits of all. 1st -It is easily adjusted on and off
with snaps, doing away with straps and buckles.
2d The universal spring between the plate and pad
prevents all irritation, which is a god-send to the suf
ferer. 3d. The pad is adjusted on and off in an in
stant, and can be changed for any other size and form
most suitable to the case. In fact it combines every
quality essential to comfort and durability, and is un
equal ed in lightness, elasticity, natural action, and
artistic finish Many of my patients who are afflicted
with hernia are wearing them, and all shall in the fu
ture, for X think the great ease with which th :;se
purel' scientific appliances are made efficacious. Is
trulv remarkable. You can refer any parties to mo
on the subject of their merits. I remain truly yours,
