1800s ad: Pink Pills for Pale People

. Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Miraculous Cure. Richard D. Creech of 1062 Second St., Appleton, Wisconsin says, "Our son Willard was absolutely helpless. His lower limbs were paralyzed, and when we used electricity he couuld not feel it below his hips. Finally my mother who lives in Canada, wrote advising the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and I bought some. This was when our boy had been on the stretcher for an entire year and helpless for nine months. In six weeks after taking the pills we noted signs of vitality in his legs and in four months he was able to go to school. It was nothing else in the world that saved the boy than Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. -- From the Crescent, Appleton, Wisconsin. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are sold by all druggists or direct from Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, N.Y. Postpaid on receipt of price 50 cents per box. Six boxes $2.50.
When the headline on an ad is "Miraculous Cure" and that ad is from the 1800s, you know you are about to read something far-fetched but entertaining.
