Edward Hitchcock notes on drunkenness
View Full Item
Notes by Edward Hitchcock positing that the blame for drunkenness should lay on those who overindulge rather than on the existence of liquors. He likens liquor to fire and poison, claiming that people use them in appropriate ways and not for their own destruction. He says drunkenness and damage resulting from it is the fault of those who cannot control their drinking, not the fault of drink itself. On the verso is some crossed out writing that appears to be about Franklin County and the town of Deerfield.
