From this time, the private life of Sully may be said entirely to have ceased, and his biography to become almost identified with the political history of his times. He was employed by the prince in the battles of Coutras and Arques, at the sieges of Paris, Rouen, Laon, and in all engagements of any importance. In 1598, he undertook the finance of France; and though up to that time his public pursuits had been entirely of a military character, yet he completely re-established the prosperity of this new and difficult department of the state, paying two hundred millions of debt in ten years, and at the same time replenishing the treasury. In 1601, he became master of artillery, and in the following year Governor of the

Cure of Epilepsy. To Mr. E. Giles, Tavern-street, Ipswich, Sir,- With heartfelt thanks to the Almighty dispenser of all good, for that return of health I now enjoy from the use of Mr. Morison's Universal Medicine, I consider it iny duty to suffering humanity to give every possible publicity I can to my extraordinary case and cure, in the hope of inducing others, who may despair of relief ie similar cases, to reap the same benefit.

For seven years I was afflicted with fits of the inost alarming description, and in the last twelve months previous to my taking the Pills, they came on from twice to four times a weck, and lasted from one to three hours at a time, requiring sereral persons to hold me. It was in this state of suffering I called on your sub-agent, Mr. Backett, of this place, who recommended me to try the “ Universal Medicine,” and I commenced with six of No. 1 and 2 alternately, night und morning, increasing gradually up to twenty-four in a day, then reducing tben down to three or four, until I left oft. When I had taken the Pills three days, i had a slight attack for about halt an hour; but from that time till the present, which is sis months, I have not bad the least symptom of a relapse. I took the pills six weeks.
