Sunday among farmers

Sunday among farmers

"I feel that way, myself.  You don't know what restraint I have put upon myself that the sacred quiet of this day might not be disturbed.  I have had strong provercation since I entered this apartment.  I will forbear to speak of it till tomorrow in order that there may be quietness and that our minds may be prepared for worship.  I feel that it would be unseemly for us to enter a house of worship with thoughts of strife in our souls.  At precisely what moment do you wish me to be ready for church?"
"I am not going to church, Mrs. Mumpson."
"Not going to church!  I--I--scarcely understand.  Worship is such a sacred duty--"
"You and Jane certainly have a right to go to church, and since it is your wish, I'll take you down to Lemuel Weeks' and you can go with them."
"I don't want to go to Cousin Lemuel's, nor to church, nuther," Jane protested.
"Why, Mr. Holcroft," began the widow sweetly, "after you've once harnessed up it will take but a little longer to keep on to the meeting house.  It would appear so seemly for us to drive thither, as a matter of course.  It would be what the communerty expects of us.  This is not our day, that we should spend it carnally.  We should be spiritually-minded.  We should put away things of earth.  Thoughts of business and any  with her, he would sanction
everything at oncehe answered.unnecessary toil should be abhorrent.  I have often thought that there was too much milking done on .  I know they say it is essential, but they all seem so prone to forget that but one thing is needful.  I feel it borne in upon my mind, Mr. Holcroft, that I should plead with you to attend divine worship and seek an uplifting of your thoughts.  You have no idea how differently the day may end, or what emotions may be aroused if you place yourself under the droppings of the sanctuary."
"I'm like Jane, I don't wish to go," said Mr. Holcroft nervously.
