Jewett was an M.D. and prominent in the Temperance Movement. The contents wof this volume consist of speeches and poems delivered to Temperence Society meetings and other venues in the 1840's. Jewett seems extremely intemperate in his advocacy of Temperance. He sees no good at all in any intoxicating substances, and lumps all the voices of moderation in with the vilest criminals and demons.
