Poem published in 1790s by Hannah More in her Cheap Repository Tracts series. This printed pamphlet was sold by J. Marshall printer to the Cheap Repository for Religious & Moral Tracts, in London. Hannah More (1745-1833) was an English religious writer and philanthropist. In the 1790s she wrote several Cheap Repository Tracts. The Cheap Repository Tracts consisted of more than two hundred moral, religious and occasionally political tracts issued in a number of series between March 1795 and about 1817, and subsequently re-issued in various collected editions until the 1830s. They were devised by Hannah More and intended for sale or distribution to literate poor people, as an alternative to what she regarded as the immoral traditional broadside ballad and chapbook publications. The tracts proved to be enormously successful with more than two million copies sold or distributed during the first year of the scheme.
