ELEVEN YEARS A DRUNKARD,
- OR -
THE LIFE OF THOMAS DONER
Having Lost Both Arms Through Intemperance,
He wrote this book with his teeth
AS A WARNING TO OTHERS.
“KIND FRIENDS: Being deprived of both my arms by whiskey, I take this method of earning my livelihood by introducing to your honorable notice my past life. Although chastened and subdued in spirit by the loss and suffering I have borne through intemperance, I am thankful to that good Being through whose mercy I was saved from dropping into a drunkard's grave, to fight against this promoter of crime and misery, that has robbed me of my arms, until I am called away to that heavenly land where trouble and sorrow never come, and where, as far as these statements are concerned, I am willing to be judged at last.
