Pillula salutaris; Or, the justly celebrated Dr. Anthony's Irish pills, (so warmly recommended by Dr. Graham), originally invented, and solely prepared by that celebrated Doctress, Dame Nature, in whom alone the secret reposes: - these pills are remarkably efficacious in the Cure of several Diseases, particularly those of the Stomach; they are known by different Names in different Countries, such as Munster Plumbs, Irish Apricots, Dungarvon Almonds, Jerusalem Artichokes, Eastham Ginseng, Hibernian Mandrakes, Windsor Nutmegs, &c. &c. In Love, they are found to be extremely successful, and as they are far from being Quack Pills, they neither require gilding, nor yet Letters Patent to set them off, as they are of themselves so inviting, that in the Course of a little Preparation they smile in your Face. - Edwin's Pills for purging Melancholy, are nothing to them-as yet they have been free from all Taxes, except that partial and oppressive one-the Shop Tax;-And it is wished that the first Inventors of it may be choaked with the first they swallow of them. These excellent pills, in their prime Quality, are now selling (by the Doctress's particular Appointment) at no. 25, Long-Acre, by Michael Devlin, Vos Hibernia Collocatis,-Summum Bonum in Potatoes. Ye London Folkes,-Leave off your Jokes, Ye snarling Quacks be dumb, These are the Pills,-That cure all Ills, Past, present, and to come.
