I have personally known Dr. Colby for about forty years, most of the time intimately.  He is a gentleman of the highest standing, both socially and professionally.  In the department of physiology, pathology, and therapeutics to which he has devoted his life, with a most untiring enthusiasm, he has few, if any, superiors among the members of the profession anywhere.  Any medicine having his countenance may be received with the utmost confidence.
Isaac F. Redfield (Late Chief Justice of Vermont.)
Boston, Feb.4, 1860
Having long been acquainted with Dr. Colby, I most cheerfully certify to his high standing as a practitioner, and as a gentleman of unexceptionable character.  He has presented a happy combination of therapeutical agents, which is valuable as a cathartic and tonic.  Having tried it myself, and knowing the ingredients, I can earnestly recommend it for its excellent qualities. Winslow Lewis, M.D.
Plus many more recommendations for M.F. Colby, M.D.
