Context of The affecting history of Tom Bragwell : an unhappy young man, who was cut off for his crimes in the morning of his days, with some accourt of his companions in iniquity : wherein, are strikingly delineated the rise, progress and fatal termination of juvenile delinquency : and in which frequent allusion is made to certain facts, connected with the history of the times, particularly to the cases of the three young men, who were executed at Edinburgh a few years ago : humbly recommended to the serious attention of youth, as well as to the consideration of all parents, guardians, teachers, masters, and heads of families, who feel themselves interested in checking the first approaches to vice in the rising generation from a principle of humanity, and regard to the axiom, that, "It is better to prevent crimes than to punish them."
