Half persuaded to a Bandon his cups is found in the Tormen Ting thirst his intemperate habits have induced and cultivated. The description of this thirst Given by Many from bitter experience proves it to effect Peculiar to intoxicating liquor.

The above suggestion i have been induced to make Public in the Hope of contributing some Aid to the glorious reformation now in Progress among those who have Long been passed by As lost beyond recovery. We have at last discovered that there is Hope for1 the poor inebriated. And when he is urged to break away from his cups let Hira be induced also to make the Experiment whether milk will not slake the burning thirst am alleviate if not entirely prevent the horrors he suffers in returning his Constitution to a sober healthy state.
