Gathering of moral sentiments, as promoted by a seedsman: 20 illustrated temperance postcards, earnestly drawn and calligraphed by J.O. Hulbert of Glastonbury, CT, and published by a New York garden supplier. The cards are mostly printed in a single color (red, blue, sepia, maroon, green), with two cards shading from terra cotta at the top to sage green at the bottom. The majority attack saloons and their wares, with the one exception boldly querying "can a man use TOBACCO and respect the rights of others?" Many are simply pragmatic, referring to the physical and financial costs of alcoholism; a few however are overtly Christian, including one captioned "A religion that leaves the saloons undisturbed, unattacked, is not worthy to be called after the name of Jesus Christ." One card offers a "Juvenile Pledge" to be filled in with name and address. Oblong postcard (8.8 cm, 3.5"). 20 cards. Two cards with upper right corners chewed, by something very small; six others with barely perceptible damage to same area; all is otherwise clean and crisp. => A charming and attractive set of dire warnings.
