A Knight That Smote the Dragon, or the Young People's Gough (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Knight That Smote the Dragon, or the Young People's Gough HE late John B. Gough, the great temper ance orator of his day, told in a little volume (1845) the story of his youth, his descent into the midnight depths of intemperance, and his painful ascent into liberty and the light again. The details of his subsequent life have been given in other volumes, but that firstlittle book of 1845 holds for the most part the facts that I specially wish to emphasize for the sake of our young people. These facts make a glass through which we can look back and see what unmade Gough and then made him. Here we find the warning against wrong and the spur to reformation. I would add that in a fitting. Memorial issued by the National Temperance Society, that noble or ganization, I found a helpful summary of facts and addresses from which I have been kindly allowed to quote. The life of Gough gives a summons to all to move upon that beastly, cruel enemy, Drink. If under the Dragon's foot to day, let not any despair. In the strength of God, may they rise like Gough and deal that wound of death which will be the healing of their own hurt!
