The New England Sabbath Protective League
THE NEW ENGLAND SABBATH PROTECTIVE LEAGUE is the only organization for the
defence of the Lord's Day in New England. It was incorporated in May, 1895. Bishop
R. S. Foster was elected its first president and served until January 1, 1897, when Senator
George F. Hoar accepted the presidency. In January, 1905, Hon. John D. Long was
elected President of the League in place of Senator Hoar, who served faithfully and
efficiently for eight years, until his death. Additions have been made from time to time
to its strong official boards, representing the different denominations and sympathetic
organizations. Its work has been practical and far-reaching, along wise, conservative
lines. It has received and retained the endorsement and co-operation of the best ele-
ments of the six New England states. It confidently appeals to the public, as deserving
the patronage of all friends of the Lord's Day.
"Its OBJECT shall be to maintain the observance of the Lord's Day as a civil rest day
and a day for religious uses,' DEFENDING it against the encroachments of business and
ITS METHODS include ORGANIZATION and AGITATION, INSTRUCTION by press, pulpit
and platform, EDUCATION of the young and morally ignorant, the PROTECTION and EN-
FORCEMENT of Sunday laws, and the securing of BETTER LEGISLATION in the interests of
the workingman and of good citizenship.
ITS WORK must be supported almost entirely by private and public donations as it
has no adequate endowment. It is inter-denominational, including twelve or more de-
nominations in its list of officers and members.
In order to introduce its important claims to the public, and enable it in the mean-
time to meet current office expenses, publish its organ, THE DEFENDER, and distribute it
and other Sabbath literature, convene and hold rallies, congresses and conventions in
different parts of New England, help preserve our present laws and se better ones,-a
guarantee fund is necessary.
To raise this, attention is called to the three forms of membership given below:
Will friends of the Lord's Day kindly send us memberships and subscriptions? All
members will receive regularly the DEFENDER (the bi-monthly organ of the League), and
also other literature as they request it. THE INTERESTS OF THE LORD OF THE SAB-
BATH" DEMAND YOUR PRACTICAL SYMPATHY. SEND ALL DONATIONS AND PLEDGES AS
Subscription for Defender
FORM OF BEQUEST.
I give and bequeath to New England Sabbath Protective League, to be paid by
my executors to the treasurer of said League, the sum of $, the same to be ap-
plied to the general uses and purposes of said League, under the direction of its
Board of Directors.
N. B. All information sent to the Secretary concerning violations of the Lord's
Day, will receive attention, and be treated as strictly confidential, and assistance will be
rendered, if possible.
Local information, communications and short articles for publication will always be
welcome, and used when possible in the DEFENDER, of which (together with Pocket
Pamphlets and other literature) some 2,000,000 pages are distributed annually.
The Secretary's engagement to address Churches, Young People's Societies, Women's
Christian Temperance Unions, religious bodies, social and labor organizations, on both
Sundays and week-days, are usually made some weeks in advance. No expense is in-
volved except entertainment, and an offering, with envelopes, to aid the work of the
League. Correspondence is invited. All inquiries as to dates and other matters, will
receive prompt attention if addressed to
