Virtue reviv'd, or Britain's fall protracted

Publication Date1747
RemainderA petition to the Honourable the Commons of Great Britain, in Paliament assembled: humbly to address His Majesty, to order and inquiry, into the clergy's neglect in the daily ministration. And to cause to be inforced, by a pecuniary mulct, that appointment in the book of common prayer, whereby they are obliged to say daily the morning and evening prayer in their parish churches. And to induce the people to join with them, it is proposed to shorten the week-days service, by omitting the Psalms, lessons, &c. So that the whole may be performed in about a quarter of an hour. The penalty prescribed: the prayers specified: the whole earnestly recommended to the consideration of men in power, to receive what corrections, and amendments, shall by them be thought expedient.
