In the 1800's, Horsford's Acid Phosphate claimed to be a cure for many things, including indigestion, nervousness, exhaustion, tired brain, seasickness and night sweats. Wow!! Wouldn't you want to buy a bottle of this tonic if you thought it would relieve these symptoms. I sure would.
Here's my favorite claim which helps nervousness & exhaustion. I'm not sure what it all means, but it sounds good: Acid Phosphate supplies the waste of phosphates caused by every mental and physical exertion, imparting new energy, increasing the intellectual and physical power, and is an agreeable and beneficial food and tonic for the brain and nerves.
The paper advertising of the 1800's was done SO beautifully. This particiular piece is dated 1896 and is in my collection of vintage paper. I'm offering it free to you today. It is a small folder and I've broken it down into sections so you'd have a choice as to which images you want to use. I removed the words off the girl so you'd be able to use her alone. Remember to click on each image for a larger view.
Obviously, this is not something sold today, but you can probably relate to why it would have been so popular in it's day. I'm the queen of anxiety, nervousness, and a tired brain ~ thankfully I have the promise of this scripture to help me.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
I Peter 5:7.
I've added this scripture to the girl below as a reminder there is help for our anxiety.
All the images in this post are free to you today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Your comments make me happy, and I read every one. Have a blessed day.
