A Romance of Lake Wakatipu

Note 19.—Sabbath Observance

Note 19.—Sabbath Observance.

In a petition to the Provincial Legislature, presented in the year 1864, the Otago Presbytery complains of the public desecration of the Sabbath in various forms and in different parts of this (Otago) province, more especially in connection with the loading and unloading of vessels, and also the delivery of letters at the post-office. The Presbytery therefore prays the Council to obtain the sanction of the Governor to provide regulations so as to effectually protect a strict observance of the Lord's-day within the boundaries of the province.
