Title: J. L. Brennan Rupture Appliances advertisement
Description: Advertising brochure for J. L. Brennan trusses featuring a picture of J. L. Brennan and a description of his product. Caption on front: BRENNAN'S FLAT HOLLOW CUSHION Patented in U.S. Canada and all Foreign Countries. J. L. BRENNAN Inventor Acts Almost as the Human Fingers, Strong enough to hold an OX, yet Soft, Soothing, and light as a feather. Instant Relief and a Possible CURE for all Forms of RUPTURE. J. L. BRENNAN Ceresco, Michigan, U.S.A. Caption on inside: Do not throw this booklet away because you have been humbugged and swindled by a number of high-priced, blood-sucking truss makers. They are not all dishonest, I'll admit they are as scarce as hen's teeth. All I ask is, just read over this booklet, then if you think I am unworthy of your patronage, "All well and good." I, myself, have been led to believe by large advertisements and flowery literature, that different makes of so-called Guaranteed Rupture Cures, would hold and cure. And I have worn these trusses and paid out my hard-earned money, only to be sadly disappointed, not even getting relief--far from this--but torture and misery in its worst form...[incomplete caption; see original for full text]... CERESCO is a beautiful little village located on the high banks of the famous Kalamazoo River, and is five miles east of Battle Creek.
