Michigan, in Legislature assembled :

We, the undersigned legal voters of the city of Ionia, Michigan, would respectfully and earnestly ask your honorable body to at once totally repeal chapter 65 of the compiled laws of 1871, of this State, entitled "An act to authorize dissection in certain cases for the advancement of science;' and also likewise remonstrate against any more such legislation. With all due deference, we submit tuat any statute wbich compels the surrender of “the dead bodies of such poor persons as may be required to be buried at the public expense to any practising physician in the State," or to the faculty of the medical department of the State Uuiversity for dissection,” thereby denying them a christian burial, and that because they are “ the dead bodies of such poor persons as may be required to be buried at the public expense,” is in unqualified violation of the genius of our democratic institutions, at war with the best spirit and sentiment of the age, shocking to humanity, and disreputable to the State. Thus firmly and sincerely believing, your petitioners will, as in duty bound, ever humbly and anxiously ask and remonstrate as aforesaid.
