An Account of Memorials free pdf Excerpt from An Account of Memorials: Presented to Congress, During Its Last Session, by Numerous Friends of Their Country and Its Institutions- Praying That the Mails Not Be Transported, Nor Post-Offices Kept Open, on the Sabbath Ever since the mail was first transported in the United States on the Sabbath, this violation of the day of rest has been a source of grief and pain to many individuals, who are justly ranked among the most intelligent, useful, and virtuous of our citizens. To the certain knowledge of the compiler of these pages, much regret has been expressed, by persons residing in many parts of the Union, that a practice so pernicious in its tendency and consequences, should have been sanctioned by any department of our national government. Post-offices, in our large towns, were gradually opened, one after another, for a part of the Sabbath- and in 1810, a section was inserted, in the law regulating the post-office, by which post-masters were obliged to deliver letters at all reasonable hours, on every day of the week. This law attracted very little attention at the time- and it is supposed, that the section alluded to was scarcely considered at all, except by the Committee that introduced it. A member of congress recently declared it to be very strange, that such a provision should have crept into the law- for it was clearly a repeal of the Fourth Commandment. Most certainly this is the fact, unless it can be shown, that to keep the post-office open in every city, town, and village of our land, on every Sabbath of the year, and in a time of the profoundest peace, is a work of necessity and mercy- a proposition not very likely to be established, when the post-office in London, the most populous, the most busy, and the most commercial city in the world, is closed, during the whole of every Sabbath. Indeed, it is absurd to speak of the business of the mails and the post-office, as being a work of necessity at all times, when the custom-house, the public offices at the seat of government, and all the courts of justice, are uniformly closed one day in seven and when great numbers of our most active and enterprising men of business never receive their letters on the Sabbath, and yet conduct their affairs with as much skill, prudence, and success as others. The keeping open of post-offices, on the day of sacred rest, has been to many hearts a still greater grief and harden, than the transportation of the mail on that day. In many towns, both large and small, the post office is so located, as to attract crowds of idlers, who do not pretend to any plea of necessity.
