About This Item

A Sermon Occasioned by the Murder of Philip Edwards, Perpetuated Under the Influence of Alcoholic Insanity, By John L. Davis, In Holden, Mass., August 15, 1838. Worcester: Press of the Massachusetts Spy, 1838. 22 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers.

Overlooked by McDade, this murder took place during a drinking binge. The sermon relates the events of the case, but it is essentially a temperance tract. "If the evil extended no farther than the degradation and misery of merely being a drunkard, the extent of the calamity could not be measured; but what a host of attendant evil follow the demon of intemperance wherever it goes. (...) Official statements, and the testimony of men of the soundest judgment and greatest candor, have been presented before us in the simplest forms, showing the extreme and terrible danger of that which so deranges the nerves and crazes the brain" (13). OCLC locates 10 copies, 1 in a law library (Social Law). Not in McDade.
