ERRATUM
Our attention has been drawn to a typographical error in the Report of the "Sabbath Committee." as
published in the “Christian Miscellany.” At page 325 it is stated that the monster petition contained
upwards of two hundred thousand signatures; whereas the words in the manuscript were, “ which it was
boastfully predicted would contain upwards of two hundred thousand." Our belief is, that not more
than thirty-five thousand signatures had been obtained when the confederacy was broken up, and the
attempt abandoned.
