For many years, Josephine Henry was part of the Blue-grass Blade Club and she advertised in the free-thought paper the sale of her pamphlet "Marriage and Divorce." The advertisement narrative is transcribed below:
Josephine K. Henry's pamphlet, 'Marriage and Divorce,' is receiving warm commendations from all classes, and all sections. The masterly manner in which this vital subject is treated in this pamphlet was referred to in several of the speeches made at the Divorce Congress, recently held in Washington. It should be read and pondered by members of the bar and judges, members of ethical societies, womens clubs, and all men and women who desire better domestic and social conditions. Marriage and Divorce is the most vital problem in every community of our land, and should engage the best thought of both sexes, as upon its proper solution, depends the weal or woe of the individual and society at large. Mrs. Henry predicted in this pamphlet the failure of the Divorce Congress to foist its medieval ideas on the public, and the refusal of the U.S. Congress to pass a Uniform Divorce Law, or instruct the states to make their own laws on this question, and no right to interfere with the individual affairs of the people.
The conservatives led by the clergy will now have to invent some other method to carry their point, which will be no more successful than those what have so signally failed. Every man and woman who has not read this pamphlet should order a copy, read it, and pass it on to your neighbors. Its reading will set brains a pondering, and thus by action of mind, grand and noble ideas may be evolved that may be fraught with hope and happiness. All orders for "Marriage and Divorce" will be promptly filled by addressing
