Professor Hitchcock, who taught Chemistry and Natural History at Amherst College, writes on the "active poison" of ardent spirits and wine, as well as "narcotic substances commonly used, opium and tobacco." He writes to "every student and other intelligent young man...in the hope of persuading them all, totally to abstain from their use." Hitchcock presents a scientific and philosophic analysis of these substances.
