Dr. Nelson's most wonderful PANACEA, for the CONFIRM'D POX,

(And, all the Relicks or Remains of it in the Blood) which it infallibly eradicates, tho' of ever so long standing, it having been long experienc'd to be the only safe and sure Remedy for that hateful Distemper, that was ever known or discovered.

It curing so easily, and insensibly, as any Disorder it gives, Confinement it requires, or Suspicion it occasions, that it is admir'd and recommended all that have taken it, for it neither purges, vomits, nor salivates, but cures by its Alterative, Deobstruent, Antivenerea Qualities, insomuch that Children, and the weakest and most tender or crazy constitution'd People may take it at all times of the Year, and go about with it as if they had taken nothing, as may likewise those who have been brought near the Grave, by repeated) unsuccessful Salivations, or other violent, or too frequent Purgations, or Vomits; for it restores as well as clears the Blood, Head or whole Habit, of all the lurking poisonous Taint, and Mercury tho' never so secretly lodg'd in the Body; wherefore let none of those unfortunate People despair, but try it, and they will be comfortably convinc'd of the Truth of what is here said of it.

Persons who are pox'd to the last Degree, their whole Mass of Blood being contaminated, and have been told that nothing but a Salivation would Cure them, tho' they labour under tormenting Pains in the Head Limbs, or Joints; or have breakings out of Scabe Blotches, Boils, or Spots; or have Swellings, Nodes, Sores, or Ulcers, either in their Throat, Nose, or elsewhere, with weariness in the Limbs, Faintness and Weakness of the whole Body, &c. may intirely rely upon it, only, that according to the Degree of the Infection, they must take it and continue it for a longer or shorter Time.

Such as have only some Relicks of the Disease, or but suspect that their Blood has got a Smatch of the Taint, by some unusual Uneasinesses about them, which they now and then feel, either from ill manag'd Claps, or other doubtful Cures, should never venture to marry, if they are single, nor meddle with their Wives if marry'd, till they are sure they are safe, as they most certainly will be, upon their only taking a Pot or two of it.

It is also exceeding pleasant to take, as well as delightful in its effects; and cleanses, Nourishes and Restores, the foulest, most weakned and worn-out Constitutions.

Price 5 s. the Tin-pot, prepar'd only by the Doctor above said, and left by him, at Mr. sted's Bookseller at the Golden Ball, near St. Dunstan's Church in Fleet-street; where it may be had, by any Messenger, ready sealed up, with Directions how to take it, by only asking for a 5 s. Pot of the Panacea.
