There is a portrait vignette of Dr. Harmon in the upper left corner. There are illustrations of the four stages of Mrs. Worland’s progress across the top of the sheet. The images show Mrs. Worland’s transformation from a thin, plain-looking woman, before treatment, into a buxom beauty, after using full course. The sheet measures 11 X 8 1/2 inches and is in fair condition due to small torn holes, age toning, stains, and folds, one of which has separated & been repaired with several pieces of old, yellowing cellophane tape on the back side. Please see the photos & scans included with the description for condition and feel free to ask any questions. The letter is a scarce item. There are no other original printings available for sale on internet searches (ABE, ILAB, eBay, etc...).
