Seven Barks Medication Lyman Brown Proprietor, New York, NY
This is so cool. A medication for anything that ails you: Dyspepsia; Indigestion; Rheumatism; Constipation, etc.
Derived from the 7 layers of the Hydrangea bark.
"If the dose moves your bowels too much, diminish it, if not, increase it."
"Dose 10 to 20 drops in a teaspoon of water."
The bottle is full and the medication comes with a small corkscrew to remove the cork (or the user's "cork"). There is also a small booklet of instructions included.
I love the dog graphics and that is the main reason that I purchased it from a local shop. I could find a few others on line, without the corkscrew.
I found the following on line:
This obscure medicine was produced by the Mt. Lebanon, NY Shakers exclusively for the New York druggist Lyman Brown.
It was sold as a cure for everything from dyspepsia and rheumatism to female complaints.
Overall length of box is about 3-1/2 inches, rectangular package, about 1-1/2 inch square.
The following is an old advertisement:
COSTS NOTHING TO TRY Seven Barks. Local Druggists Guarantee Its Efficacy or Make No Charge. We want everybody suffering from any disorder of the Stomach, Bowels or Liver to get a full bottle of "Seven Barks." the great German stomach and liver regulator. As an evidence of good faith, we ask a deposit of 60 cents, but if after taking according to directions, the remedy does not accomplish all that is claimed, return the empty or partly used bottle and your money will be cheerfully handed back.We could not afford to make a guarantee of this kind were we not positive of our position. "Seven Barks" is not an untried remedy. It has been on the market for thirty-live years with astonishing success.
Lyman Brown, Esq. "Dear Sir—l have just finished a bottle of your 'Seven Barks' with marvelous results. Its equally a reconstructor and Mood purifier was unknown to me.
