Excerpt from A Discourse Delivered Before the State Temperance Society of South Carolina: At Its First Anniversary, in the Representatives Hall, Columbia, Nov, 29, 1838; With an Appendix of the Minutes of the Meeting

In surveying human society, whether civilized or barbarous, our attention is arrested by the prevalence of evils, so irrational and revolting, that the inquiry is forced upon us, how they could have been produced, how they can be tolerated. Most of the crimes, whose recorded frequency and enormity stain the annals of our race, can be readily traced to the selfishness and moral corruption which belong to our lapsed nature. But there are some practices equally prevalent and pernicious, so absurd, so barba rous and brutal, as to outrage common sense, and shock every feeling of humanity. Yet even these enormities could not have prevailed at all, and cannot now continue to scourge the earth unless sustained and sanctioned by public approbation. We must therefore find the real cause of popular evils, however vile and degrading, in the corruption and perversity of popular Opinion.
