David Patterson respectfully informs the Stock-Holders of Western Australia, Australia, that he practiced for some years under Mr John Con (Colin 'maybe'), an eminent Cow Doctor in Perthshire, Scotland; where he got thoroughly acquainted with all Complaints that cattle are subject to, which he will undertake to cure on the most reasonable terms.
___________

I certify that Mr David Patterson made a perfect cure of a Cow of mine, which was attacked by the same complaint by which I lost fifteen head of Cattle in the space of five or six months; and had I applied to him in time, I have no doubt he would have saved me the loss of some valuable Cows.
