We have been induced to reprint and largely circulate this extract from the late Charge of the Bishop of Fredericton, on the proposed alteration of the Law of Marriage by which a widower may be allowed to marry his Deceased Wife's Sister.
Believing that such an alteration of the Law of Marriage would be fatal to the social happiness and domestic purity of English homes, we earnestly commend it to the serious consideration of the Members of the Legislature as containing in a condensed and vigorous form the reasons for the rejection of such a Bill whenever, and by whomsoever, it may be submitted to either House of Parliament.
