The Thursday Quote

“The Use of Stills, which only produce a very unwholesome Spirit well known to be productive of Dysentery, is from the best of motives forbidden; And as the Governor has applied for Brewing Materials to be sent from England to Norfolk Island, he hopes that wholesome Beer will be found more acceptable than the certain destructive Effects of hard Spirits.”
General orders from Norfolk Island Lieutenant-Governor Foveaux
