"Herein will be found several pieces that heretofore could only be obtained in sheet form, costing as much for one piece as this entire book. It has not been hurriedly compiled, under heavy pressure to be completed at a set time, or for some particular occasion, but it is the result of years of thought and patient study; condensed into the smallest possible amount of space, in order to be able to fix the price so low that it will be within the reach of all, and its cost no obstacle to its universal distribution among temperance people both at hom and at their public places of meeting."
