it is a Just and fidr inference, that a
lift of Tolnniory idleness is a H/e of
disobedienoe to tbe law and will of
Heaven. If qf your own clHriea,
you spend the six weririgg days idly
you ore os verily a trnn^veosor of

disregarding the day that is conse
crated. And bedMea, we are tbe
better fitted fbr the duties of the
Mbbath by means of our industry
in “providing things honest” during
the rest of tbe week; while on tbe
other band, he Uiat idles away tbe
six days of labor, is very ill pre
