Notes by Edward Hitchcock for remarks delivered before the American Temperance Society on the idea the buying and selling of liquors is inconsistent with the cause of temperance, even if those buying and selling abstain from liquor themselves. Hitchcock provides reasons for his belief and states that traffic in distilled liquors is inconsistent with Christianity and should be ended throughout the world.
