The following is the most singular remedy for intemperance we ever heard of. After this, Dr. Chambers famous prescription must 'hide its diminised [sic] head.'- Sat. Eve. Post.
A drunkard of this town had been long yoked in matrimony, and was surrendered with a hopeful progeny. His wife at length finding, if the husband drank so much, she and her children must leave off eating, determined to follow him from pot-house to pot-house, which she did, seating herself at his side, calling for the same beverage, regaling herself in the same manner, and singing songs in concert. She neglected her children, returned home jovially drunk, always in company with her husband; the man swore the woman chimed in- the husband left home- she followed. At last, he was disgusted with the public house- so did his wife; he attended to his business- so did she; he became a good father- she a good wife; thus exemplifying a new way of curing a husband.
