Excerpt from Sabbath Laws in the United States

It has been a matter of great satisfaction to me that the author of this compilation and analysis of the Sabbath Laws in the United States was found willing, amid the pressing cares of a city pastorate, to undertake the task of preparing the work now given to the press. In these introductory words I must be con-find to such considerations as may go to prove the proposition that this book is worthy the attention of the public, and of the whole public, as well as that of the bench, the bar and the pulpit.

1. It is unique and without precedent, so far as I know, in its comprehensiveness.

2. It has been carefully and even laboriously prepared with diligent comparisons of legal texts and discriminating choice of the most important material in the various decisions and situations.

3. It is of equal interest to men of all shades of opinion because it presents the maximum of facts accompanied with only the minimum of the reasoning which belongs to the pronounced views of the respected author and those whom he represents. It is, in this respect, not much more than a "catalogue raisonne." Its main function is to supply much-needed information not otherwise to be conveniently found.

4. It is of interest to every citizen thoughtful enough to desire knowledge of that which underlies our civilization. Nothing has been more characteristic of our institutions from the beginning, and. nothing has attracted more concentrated and sustained attention than our "American Sabbath."
