The author's purpose is to "touch upon the most, if not all of the great evils of the day, and have placed the language in the poetic form, thinking that perhaps in this way I might reach the minds of those of my sex that would not be as well pleased with the practicabilities in prose..."
A somewhat uncommon work addressing women's suffrage, etc.
