“On the Road” / Memorable Fancies #2095

[An except from Social Abominations, or, The Follies of Modern Society (1895):]

“Gambling is not an isolated vice; and it is attended with a whole retinue of evils. The sparkling wine cup passes from lip to lip; inebriety is certain to follow; intoxication is a necessary inspiration; the “strange woman” is companion to gamblers – she whose steps take hold on death and hell. There is a direct road from the gambling hell to the penitentiary.”
