Excerpt from Hope for the Victims of Alcohol, Opium, Morphine, Cocaine, and Other Vices: A Narration of Successful Efforts During Ten Years of Personal Labor
At the earnest request of my many friends and those interested in the great work of saving the drunkard, I herein give a brief history of the origin and work of The New York Christian Home for Intemperate Men.
To God I feel grateful for the grace which has enabled me to meet and overcome the obstacles that presented themselves in this untried and, to many, doubtful undertaking.
