I know of no place upon the face of the earth where the Sabbath is kept as it is in Boston.  If a single person were to walk on Boston’s streets at the time of worship, he would be taken up.  It is not entrusted to poor insignificant men, but justices go out, at the time of worship, and walk with a white wand: if they catch any person walking on the streets, they put him under a black rod.George Whitefield (1714-1770)
