As I have in my proceeding letters so ftilly describ ed the symptoms and pathology of Catarrh, and the various diseases of tlic air passages, and pointed out their important relation to consumption, and other diseases of the cheat. I shall in the present instance, content myself by furnishing tiio following strong proofs of their curability. To show tlie permanency of cures effected by In halation, 1 will here refer to persons now living in the enjoyment ot good health, whose cases were pro nounced hopeless and incurable some yeais since, and were cured by Dr. Morse's Remedies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Hundreds of other similar cases might bo mentioned. CONSUMPTION. Mrs. Sophia A. Fittz, formerly of Hath, now a res ident ol Oak Hill, Brunswick,ot this State, was re duced to a very low state by sickuess in l8Cg. It was soon manifest that lier lungs wore laboring under tu berculous ulceration, which was fust wasting her life away. Her physician thought the structure of her loft lung was almost destroyed. Her case was considered hoiicless and incurable by all of her friends and phy sician. She was placed under tiio care of l)r. Morse of Portland, by whom a perfect cure was effected, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Mrs. E, lias enjoyed bolter health since than ever before. ASTHMA. Mrs. Dorcas Lawrence of Falmouth, tins State, was in a feeble state of health for a long time, caused by Asthma, or Phthisic, ditticulty of broatli ing, and other alarming symptoms, which caused much suffering, which rendered her case hopeless In the minds of lier lriends. site » as restored to a per fect state iff health by the use of Dr. Morse’s Reme dies, mostly through the medium oflulialation. PNEIDlOiVlt'A. Mrs. Samuel Mill of West Buxton, In this State, was severely troubled with Pnoumouioo, a disease affecting the lungs, their membrane or motive power, characterized by irregular, impeded or painful re spiration. After long suffering, a council ot three physicians was called. After consultation, they gave no en couragement of a cure, she was placed under tho care 01 Dr. Morse of Portland, and in a lew months restored to perfect health, mostly through the medi um of luhalatiou. HEHORBIUCtE. Eev. William Leavitt, brother of Mrs. Hill, having heard of liis sister’s recovery, applied to Dr. Morse-. His disease was Hemorrhage of the Lungs, which caused groat debility. He was obliged to relinquish preaching, ami entertained doubts about ever being able to resume his vocation. Ho placed himself un der the care of Dr. Morso, and In a few mouths was restored to health through the medium of Inhala tion, and is at present preaching to the people id West Buxton. n k vi o it Knit; p;. Mr. Isaac L. Barnes, of Brunswick, of this State, was troubled with Hemorrhage of the Lungs, anduth erw ise affoefed, in 1S62, had lost over thirty pounds of llesh, was troubled with palpitation of the heart, hied one pint a day for six days in succession, reduced very weak. Mr. Barues was fully restored to health by the use of Dr, Morse’s Inhaling ltemedies. Still enjoys good health. llKMORRHARE. Eev. Horace Norton, of Meadvilie, Pa., after being reduced to a very low state of health, by Hemorrhage rent the Lungs, was so feeble that he eould not w alk five roils without assistance. Came to Portland, placed himself under the care of Dr. Morse. He grad ually improved until he was fully restored to health. His weight increased from 121 pounds to lt>5 pounds. ASTHMA. Mr. James A. Page, ot Bloomfield, (afterwards re moved to Aroostook) was severely troubled with Asth ma from a child, often so badly (hat he could not per form any labor for months together. It was a com mon thing for him to he obliged to sit up all night, with much dliliculty of breathing. Mr. Page was radically cured through the medium of Inhalation, obtained of Dr. Morse. CATARRH, BKONCHITI8, tie. Mr. Isaac Kobinsun, of East VaHsalboro’, was se verely troubled w-ilh pptmonary disease for flvo years, with Chronic Catarrh, Bronchitis, severe hoarseness; could not speak above a whisper for several months, during which Mine he was confined to his room; a large ulisecss formed ou cue lung, which broke aud was discharged 1 livuugh Hie tubes out. of the mouth. His physician thought his ease hopeless. He was placed , under the care of Mr. Morse, and gradually improved by the use of the Inhaling ltemedies, uutil he was Hilly restored to hoaltli. I'll It ON 1C CATARRH. Mr. Silas W. Berry, el Watervlllo, this State, was troubled with Chronic Catarrh and pulmonary di1 ease, which was the cause nf frequent spells of As phyxia, or suspended animation. He had lost five sislerH who died with consumption, and was much alarmed about himself. Mr. Berry was ftilly restored to health by the use of Dr. Morse's Inhaling Reme dies. AN 1 IflPORTANT CVRK. Mrs. Caroline Atkinson, of Cornish, of this State, a widow whoso husband gave his lifb to his country in our recent civil war, and daughter of Mr. Samuel Kuight, ot the same town, was seriously attacked by a disease of the Lungs. She hail fastened upon her dangerous'symptoms, by which &ho was prostrated very low, and unable to oe removed for several days, and was given up to die. Other organs were serious ly affected, and their natural secretions suppressed. In this condition she placed herself under the care ot Dr. Morse. Through the medium oi liis Inhaling Remedies she was fully restored to health, and Ls now a hale and hearty woman. Dr. Moi>o lias the names of more than two thou sand persons on his books, who have been cured ol Catarrh in its various forms, and it is sale to say that all the above named cases were caused by Catarrh, or proceeded from that < omphaint.
