[Boston?]: National Divorce League, 1893. First edition of this extract from the Minutes of the Association. Some staining and wear; a good, sound copy. Item #13212
On how to combat the decline of family life, the increase in divorce, and the prevalence of sexual vice in contemporary society. Blame in part is laid to the absence of men on business and the frivolity of the modern woman: "There are the fascinations of shopping, the waste of time over mere social 'fads,' and the increasing resort on the part of women to clubs and social frivolities among themselves." As often seems to be the case with New England reform societies, greater education is stressed as the key.
