            A Word to the Young Ladies

[The author urges the young ladies to exert their influence on young men, to persuade them “with all the power of sisterly regard” to abjure alcohol.]


                                    If you but exert the power you are invested with, when the final vote

comes to be taken on this question the pure and spotless banner of Temperance will wave

triumphant o’er our land, and your ears be greeted with the encouraging words of “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”
