“I Thought I Stood on the Brink of My Grave” – Strength Magazine – August, 1929

“Thank you for the compliment, Miss Sargent. I earned my beautiful figure , as you called it, through bitter experience. “You would never think that I once stood on the brink of my grave, would you? Doctors gave up hope-they could not diagnose my case-and said medicine would not help me. That was after I took what seemed like bushels of medicines. Now look at me-do I look sickly, puny and miserable? Not on your life! I’m just full of health and pep and I’m enjoying life like I never did before.
