    This pamphlet begins with a list of the advantages of being a drunkard such as: If you would effectually counteract your own attempts to do well, be a Drunkard, and you will not be disappointed; If you would become a fool, be a Drunkard, and you will soon lose your understanding; and, If you are resolved to kill yourself, be a Drunkard, that being a sure mode of destruction.

Between 1817 and 1818, they printed 190,500 tracts, but sold only about 35,000 (Source: Proceedings of the first ten years of the American Tract Society, 1824). less
