This Book is Related to Health. The book says that None, perhaps, more than smoking and snuff taking, the propriety of which, in the upper orders of life, have been and are, whether as regards their social or medicinal qualities, so frequently called in question by their enemies. These, the author is sorry to say, by the use of a few specious arguments, that chiefly pass current in refined society the ladies in particular have, strongly aided by prejudice, often made the defence succumb to the attack an unpardonable weakness on the part of a consumer of the herb, who is naturally enough expected to know the entire history of the favorite of his adoption. Unacquainted with the excellence of his subject, its importance and consequence in ancient and modern annals its high worshippers and eulogists, medical, and non medical, with its many endearing and social virtues acknowledged over the far greater part of the world.
