authoritative words you've ever heard about cigarettes but these words are written by one of America's top ranking doctors and eminent nose and throat specialist who knows the scientific facts about smoking listen to what the doctor had to say there is no doubt in my mind that Philip Morris cigarettes are much less irritating than other cigarettes and now listen to the doctors conclusion we would be neglecting our patients who smoke if we did not suggest that they smoke Philip Morris remember if your cigarette leaves your throat dry and parched if it makes you cough or leaves a stale musty taste in your mouth these definitely are reasons for a change – Philip Morris so join the thousands who every day are joining the millions who have already discovered that a change to Philip Morris is a change to a better cigarette a finer cigarette a cigarette of proved superiority remember of all leading cigarettes the superiority of Philip Morris and only Philip Morris is recognized by eminent
