[n/a] : Bible

'Then I became seized with a desire to know something about religion, and I read the commandments over and over again, as well as those portions of the Bible which I could understand. I was particularly struck with the words: "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour and do all that thou hast to do; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God. In it thou shalt do no manner of work", etc. "It is not right for me to work on Sundays," I said to myself, and communicated my impression to the supervisor.'
