Catalogue Note

SCARCE. Dickens's strong early pleas for the poor, written with reference to the bill "for the better observation of the Sabbath", which the House of Commons had recently thrown out by a small majority. Dickens strongly resented the idea of more rigid laws enforcing the rules of Sunday observance, pleading for the toleration of Sabbath excursions and harmless Sunday amusements.
