TO obviate the unpleasant sensation experienced by those Ladies who may have SUPERFLUOUS HAIRS growing on the Face or Arms, and to render their persons more lovely and attractive, was the chief motive that induced the Proprietor of ALFRED's ROYAL COMPOSITION to sub- mit that important Discovery to the test and Patronage of the Female World. How far he has succeeded in the attainment of his wishes is best shewn by the numerous applications which continue to be made from the most distinguished in the higher circles for rank, beauty, and fashion. This Composition (which was first prepared for the late Queen of France) not only re- moves and eradicates all Superfluous Hairs from the Face and Arms, but renders the Skin more delicate and fair, giving to the complexion and features a new portion of loveliness and attrac- tion. The Proprietor finding a considerable increase in the sale, has relinquished the Retail Branch, and appointed the Composition to be sold in packets, at 5s. 6d. and 2s. 9d. each, by Messrs. Gattie and Lea, No. 52, New Bond-street; Davison and Son, No. 59, Fleet-street; Kieth, No. 30, Haymarket; Bowman, No. 102, Bond-street; Vickery, Tavistock-street; Cryer, No. 68, Cornhill; and Elliott, Perfumer, Rathbone-place. Whole- sale by Berry and Main, Greek-street, Soho.
