"...The evils resulting from this violation of the Sabbath have increased from year to year until they have reached an extent alarming both to the friends of morality and of a free government. Your Memorialists have witnessed this increasing immorality with deep regret. Your Memorialists deem it unnecessary to urge upon the Congress of the United States the obligation of observing the Lord's day of protecting the people in their religious privileges."
