This, sir, brings us to the shape, in which the question under consideration presents itself. It is contended that this law is an infringement of the laws of God, inasmuch as it violates the sanctity of the Christian Sabbath. Could this be proved, no conviction would sooner strike me dumb. Hence, then, the true question arises -- is the Christian Sabbath a Divine Institution? In the discussion of this momentous question, I am emboldened to proceed, only from the reflection that I rely on God's own word to prove his will. And let those beware, who would presume to prove more, by arguments drawn from other sources than those of infallible truth.
