Lithograph illustration of 4 men standing at a bar (by Carswell) with 32 lines of text. The text is a srcastic, anti- rum description of a rumseller: "Friends and Neighbors: Having just opened a commodious shop for the sale of "Liquid Fire," I embrace this early opportunity of informing you that, on Saturday next, I shall commence the business of making drunkards, paupers, and beggars, for the sober, industrious, and respectable portion of the cmmunity to support. I shall deal in "familiar spirits" which will escite men to deeds of riot, robbery, and blood; and, by so doing, diminish the comforts, augment the expenses, and Endanger the welfare of the community .".
