Hand-colored engraving by John Warner Barber (1798-1885), printed in New Haven, Connecticut. Biblical quotation above the image: "Who hath wo? Who hath sorrow? Who hath contentions? Who hath wounds without cause? ... They that tarry long at the wine. Prov. 23" [Proverbs 23]. The father is intoxicated on the floor, while his wife and children are afraid, and the home is falling apart. Below the image is a recitation of the effects of alcoholism: "Beastly Intoxication, Loss of Character, Loss of Natural Affection, Family Suffering, Brutality, Misery, Disease, Mortgages, Sheriffs, Writs &c."
