Makes flesh and strength

Fifty years ago an eminent specialist prescribed Father John’s Medicine for the Rev. Fr. John O’Brien of Lowell, Mass., by whom it was recommended and from whom it derived its name. It is not a patent medicine and is free from opium, morphine or poisonous drugs or weakening stimulants in any form, such as the majority of patent preparations depend upon for their temporary effect, and which are dangerous—you are warned against them. It makes flesh and strength and builds up the body. Prevents pneumonia and consumption. Cures colds, bronchitis, asthma and all throat and lung troubles.
