St. Charles, Ark., August 23, 1883, B. J. Kendall & Co., –Gents: –I take pleasure in informing you that I used nearly all of the bottle of Kendall’s Spavin Cure that you sent me from St. Louis, according to directions, and to my satisfaction (and I must say to my surprise) in about two weeks my mare was entirely well of the lameness caused by a bog spavin of over one year’s standing and in three weeks time the swelling was all gone and the mare is now entirely well and can trot as glib as ever. I consider the bottle of Kendall’s Spavin Cure worth to me about $150.00, as the animal was worthless as she was on three legs and could scarcely get around on them and now she is the finest buggy animal in these parts and with the remnent of the bottle after curing the mare I have nearly cured a severe corn on the ball of my big toe that has given me great pain for two or three years. I have only applied Kendall’s Spavin Cure four times and the corn now is nearly out by the roots and without any pain. In short I think it is the best liniment that is in use. I have Kendall’s Treatise on the Horse and his Diseases and I would not take any money for it if I could not get another. Hoping you great success I remain Yours Respectfully, R. C. Martin

Fortunate indeed, however, it is for the poor horse suffering from lameness of this kind that Kendall’s Spavin Cure has been discovered, as it is certain in its effects and has worked wonders in thousands of such cases.
