My Doctor Says: My Nerves And Digestion Are Ruined By Drinking Coffee And I Believe He Is Right

Description:

The front panel of the single fold leaflet includes the text My Doctor Says: My Nerves And Digestion Are Ruined By Drinking Coffee And I Believe He Is Right on a light blue background. Also on the front panel is a drawing of a worried gentleman sitting at a desk. It has a bright red background with a blue oval frame within a blue wheat frame. A blue ribbon appears above and beside the text, "My Doctor Says." In small type, the printer, Karle Litho Co. (Rochester, N.Y.), is identified. The back panel includes light blue ribbon around a fleur-de-lis design on a light blue background. Superimposed over the design is a drawing of a red, white and blue box of Grain-O. Text below reads The Drink That Takes The Place Of Coffee, That Makes New Blood And Strong Nerves. The inside two panels of the leaflet include product testimonials, three of which are dated for the year 1900. Preceding the testimonials is a short promotional message for Grain-O, proclaiming that "You Will Live Longer... If Yo Drink Grain-O." Following the testimonials is the text, "Prepared By The Genesee Pure Food Co., Le Roy, N.Y."
