TO THE PEOPLE OF THE TOWN OF SMITHFIELD

by [Smith, Gerrit]

Condition: See description


Peterboro [NY], 1843. Broadsheet, 8" x 12". Very Good. The well-known reformer congratulates the Town's electors for refusing "to license dram-selling." Nevertheless, he says with frustration, "dram-selling is continued in your town. There are men amongst us so greedy of gain, so unscrupulous as to the means of acquiring it, and withal so lawless, as to perpetrate this transgression of both human and divine law." Drunkards are "the victims of a slavery which is a thousand fold more dreadful than that of the South." He urges "simple moral influence against dram-selling." OCLC records ten locations under several accession numbers as of March 2018.
