    Excerpt from The Mirror of Intemperance, and the History of Temperance Reform: To Which Is Added the Life and Death of King Alcohol, and Original and Selected Anecdotes

    The author of this work has observed with deep regret an apparent decline of interest in the temperance enterprise for some time past. As there is a close connection between enlightened zeal in moral and religious causes, and the diffusion of principles, information, and facts, in connection with such causes, he was induced to undertake the preparation of this volume, with a view of awakening greater interest in this movement. No one can doubt the utility of diffusing correct intelligence in reference to the temperance question. All who have had experience in pro moting this cause, will admit the force of the following testimony of that indefatigable and philanthropic laborer in the temperance enterprise, E. C. Delavan, Esq in relation to the matter of circu lating temperance reading. He says - I have always considered that a dollar judiciously expended, in circulating good temperance documents among the people, produced one hundredfold the cost, in direct or indirect pecuniary advantage to the public. A tem perance document, for a series of years, was placed in each family of a town; and I was assured it occasioned the saving of ten thousand dollars a year, in the cost of ardent spirits alone, not to mention the many and great incidental advantages.
