Negligence sometimes fuffers a child to
grow up left-handed. But why are we all
to be only right-handed ? The right hand
was made stronger and more convenient
by habit, not by our Creator. The wisest
of God'a creatures fuffer habit, when they
have two arms, to confine them almost to
tally to the use of one. Let us copy the
ikilful fencing mailer, and teach our chil
dren the use of both arms indifcnminately.
Cases may be put, in which the left arm,
which now fetrat to be fixed to the body
only for the fake of uniformity, may save
the wearer's life.
Every man in the moment of deep

Theatrical exhibitions, and at these writers
in favor of fprrls Item to avail themselves
of the authority of a few Clergymen, who
refufed to sign the address and petition
lately presented the Senate' and lioufe of
Representatives of the (late of Pennsylva
nia, relative to the pafilng of a Law a gain ft
vice and immorality ; you are particularly
requeftedto republifli in your Paper' from
a correa copy the said petition, with the
considerations subjoined in favor of the
fame. This rcqueft you certainly will not
refufe, as the fubferibing Clergymen have
been moil: wantonly abul'cd, in some of the
Philadelphia Newspapers, by a set of ano
nymous writers, who substitute railing for
reafotiihg ; these Clergymen, to their ho
nor be it spoken, though " reviled, revile
not again; though they fufFer, they threat
en not; but commit themselves to Hliri
that judgeth righteously" how fer the
non-fulfcribers have patterned after the
great founder of our holy religion, who
" left us an example, that we should fol
low his steps" mutt be left not with the
irreligious and prtfave, but with the men of
true piety to determine.
4 Profejfor of Chrifiianity*
Jan. 9, 1794.
To the Senate and House bf Representatives
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
THE clergy of various denominations,
in the city of Philadelphia, whose names
are underwritten, observing, with much
pleasure, that an existing law of this iiutc
for the fupprefiion of vice and immorali
ty, is by the recommendation of the exe-*
cutive, to become the fubjeft g£ legiflativc
revision ; and imprefied with a sense of
duty, which we conceive is incumbent on
us, both as ministers of the gospel, and as
members of civil society, refpe£fully re
quest the attention of the legislature to
the following rcprefentation and petr
We represent, that the legislative in
terposition is, in ourapprehenfion, peculi
arly necelTary to make some irlTtci ual prO
viiion for the orderly and religious obser
vance of the Lord's day ; for the preven
tion and punishment of the profanation
of the name of God, and every species
of impious imprecation ; for regulating
and leflening the number of houses where
intoxicating liquors are fold and used, for
the fuppreflion of all places of gaming aad
lewd resort; and for the enacting of %
law to prevent theatrical exhibitions of e
very fort. We do accordingly, mod ear*
neftly petition and request, that in fram
ing an ast against vice and immorality ,vcti
would regard, with peculiar attention,
these important objects, ft) as to prevent
the numerous injuries to which our citi
7.ens are thereby exposed, in their morals,
their health, their property, and their
general happineis.
We conceive that the solemn Intima
tions of divine Providence, in the late dif
tre fling calamity which has been experien
ced in this city, urge upon (is, in the mcft
forcible manner, the duty of reforming
every thing which may be offenfive to the
Supreme Governor of the univerle, and
of doing every thing which may impress
on the public mind, a regard to his go
vernment, his providence, his kvvj, end his
The fubje&s to which we have request

confefled importance; they arc, moreover
fubjefts which are not I'o liable to contro
versy, orcollifion of opinion, as to render
U9 deiirou9 of entering into any detail <.f
argument in support of our petition ; ex
cepting only the part which relates to the
atrical exhibitions.
On th«i w; arc aware that a difference
of fentimcnt cxifts. Some coiilidcrat'or.j
are, therefore, fuhjoined, relative to this
fubjict, to which the candid sttertion of
the legiilature is refpe&fully lolicited.
