Increase Mather (1639-1723) Boston minister and educator.

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ‘Poor Richard's Almanac’

“In a word, coffee is the drunkard's settle-brain, the fool's pastime, who admires it for being the production of Asia, and is ravished with delight when he hears the berries grow in the deserts of Arabia, but would not give a farthing for a hogshead of it, if it were to be had on Hampstead Heath or Banstead-Downs.”
Thomas Tryon (1634-1703)
‘The Good Hous-Wife Made a Doctor’ (1692)

"Cider was, next to water, the most abundant and the cheapest fluid to be had in New Hampshire, while i lived there, -- often selling for a dollar per barrel. In many a family of six or eight persons, a barrel tapped on Saturday barely lasted a full week.....The transition from cider to warmer and more potent stimulants was easy and natural; so that whole families died drunkards and vagabond paupers from the impetus first given by cider-swilling in their rural homes....."
Horace Greeley

 

“There are two types of onions, the big white Spanish and the little red Italian. The Spanish has more food value and is therefore chosen to make soup for huntsmen and drunkards, two classes of people who require fast recuperation.”
Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870)
