Excerpt from A Course of Lectures on Absolute Abstinence: Containing a Refutation of the Doctrines of the Temperance Society, Advanced in the Temperance Volume; Delivered Before His Congregation in Oakville, U. C
Induced by such a distorted state of society, and such a system of public persecution, under the pretext of promoting morality and religion, my attention was turned to the subject, and the first four of these Lectures were written there, with the intention of completing the course and delivering them publicly. But I was deterred from doing so, partly by the advice of my friends, to whom I had submitted these Lectures. And partly because the time was at hand which I had fixed for removing to Canada.
