Temperance poetry written by a doctor in Nebraska. In one piece, titled "Our Bondage: Written on Nebraska's Senate Refusing the County Option Bill," he writes: "King George once swayed his scepter here, / And ruled us with an iron hand... / King Alcohol now holds high sway, / And seeks to rule this land of ours-- / And in our legislative halls / He shows his great corrupting powers...."
