Comments

A discussion about the injurious effects of gambling on the character and the purse in a dialogue between Callimachus and Dolomedes, set in early 18th century England. Jeremy Collier (1650-1726) was famous for his A Short View of the Immorality and Profaneness of the English Stage and the "Collier Controversy" that ensued. This dialogue was later collected in Collier's Essays Upon Several Moral Subjects (1720).
