A tract on temperance by Edward Hitchcock submitted anonymously to Eleazar Lord as well as a Rev. Dr. Chapin and a Rev. Dr. Humphrey in which Hitchcock asserts that distilled liquors should not be used by professing Christians. Hitchcock asks Christians to consider two questions: first, whether the use and selling of distilled liquors is consistent with a Christian life, and second, whether allowing those who do use or traffic in liquors to be publicly admitted into the church is consistent with a Christian's duty. Arguing that in both cases the answer is no, Hitchcock discusses in depth distilled liquors, their effects, and the Bible, citing scripture and secular articles throughout.
