We should point out the consequences of vice in every opportunity that may present itself before them, and tell them that such is the sure result of disobeying the requisitions of the wise and good, and the laws of society or nature. Do we see the Bacchanalian, we should tell them, that is vice. You now see the situation of that man, and from that cause you see also it does him no good, no benefit whatsoever. He is incapable of doing any business, cannot even help himself. You see all good people do not want him in their houses. Every good citizen shuns him as they would a snake. I hope you will remember these things.
