“Her Excellency the Countess of Aberdeen writes: “That the saddle has given her complete satisfaction”. Oh, I bet it has!
I don’t think I need to spell this out but most of us know exactly what this is. The fact that it’s a cure for hysteria right on the ad is mind boggling.
It was said Vigor’s Horse Action Saddle was once available in one of the rooms at the Queen’s Hotel in Carleton Place. Mrs. Chatterton was running something else besides high tea at 3 p.m. in that hotel and after all it personally endorsed by H.R.H The Princess of Wales and the saddle had give her complete satisfaction.
Not only did it promote health and invigorate the system, it brought all the vital organs into inspiriting action. They quietly mentioned in hush tones that if Mrs.Chatteron tried one of these home saddles it might be a complete cure for her hysteria, gout and obesity.
Unfortunately, there is no one around at present to verify if it helped her or not.
