Proposed Guide for Instructions in Morals from the Standpoint of a Freethinker for Adult Persons Offered by a Dilettante, 1900
Vonnegut, Clemens. Indianapolis: Hollenbeck Press, 1900. Reprinted in 1987.

This pamphlet was written by Clemens Vonnegut, Sr., a Forty-eighter who settled in Indianapolis in 1851. The German-language version was published in 1890, and the English translation came out in 1900. Vonnegut was a founding member of the Freethinker Society in Indianapolis, and his writings reflect the Freethinkers' beliefs, including the equality of the sexes, workers' rights, and a rejection of religion not based on the scientific viewpoint.
