    Excerpt from The Report of the Select Committee of the House of Commons: On the Observance of the Lord's-Day, With the Substance of Evidence

    Liquors, the consequence of which has been that, in most parishes, Opportunities and temptations to indulge in drink ing are presented at almost every twentieth door, and in some even more frequently. This very circumstance adds greatly to the difficulty of exercising a vigilant inspection over the excesses which occur. It appears also to be a source of much inconvenience, that in Scotland a person cannot follow the business Of a Grocer without having a spirit licence, many of the most irregular tippling-houses being also grocers' shops. Among the evils most com plained Of is the insu¿icient accommodation in churches provided for the inhabitants in many places, and the ac companying impracticability of exercising a beneficial su perintendence over the morals of the overgrown popula tion. In large cities and towns, like Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Paisley, and Greenock, parishes contain Often from to or inhabitants, with seldom more than one incumbent. Hence, even when ac commodation is, to a considerable extent, provided in Chapels and Meeting-houses of various denominations, a great many of the people, belonging to no congregation, are not practically subject to any efficient controul or in Spection and thus many sources Of disorder are suffered, without interruption, to extend their in¿uence. An evil of not inferior magnitude has been alleged to spring from the inadequate provision made in such populous places for the Education of the lower orders.
