This work is a justification for "The New Beer Bill." The bill came into operation in the mid-1850s. It required public houses to be closed on Sundays except between 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. As soon as it was passed, there was a remarkable decrease in the number of cases of persons charged with inebriety at the various police stations of the municipality. When the bill was in motion, Monday, instead of being a busy day, was the opposite. The magistrates had little or nothing to do. The author gives various reasons to support the bill. The most crucial reason was the horrors of Sabbath drinking, known well by people belonging to every social class.
