a prrtented to the lat session o f the
legislature by the Orthodox Friends.
To incorporate the Ohio yearly meeting
for certain purpose therein upecifed.
Whereas the Ohio yearly meeting of
Friends hare received by don-ttion.sub-criotion
and otherwise, property and
fund for the purpose of esta dishing a
boarding school and now have the prom

from other yearly meetings an ! indivi

and whereas, the said Ohio yearly meet

the petition is referred to, it will be seen
that it is signed by very few; perhaps on

sought to lie incoriKjrated by this bill.
Then, Sir it is not necessary that this

Mk. IIahlvn: We are informed,
Mr. Speaker; that the Ohio Yearly
Meeting of Friends is divided into two
parties; how far this may lie correct
few of 11 are able to saj, but I have
my doubts of its being a fact. 1 will
admit, (as the gentleman from Fair
field hath stated,) a large party has
gone out from the Society of Friends;
who, as we are informed, have officially
denominated themselves Orthodox
Friends or Quakers. Now. sir, the
question will naturally arise, whe ther
it is thispart v,ortbe Society of Friend.
that has applied for this act. On a

While their brethren, little thinking of
what is transacting heir ; never having no
voice in the matter w hutever, are anxious
and waiting to do justice between man
and man. They are willing to allow
their Orthodox brethren so called, an
equal quota of the religion also! Thev
do not come here seeking fivours that
would conflict with the inTcrcsts of iheii
Mrethren; tberebv li-:raciiig the high
character which they have here totoiesu j
t lined. No, they intend to exhibit to the
world by their actions by the fruit of
their religion, that thev are worthy to be
called the family "f Penn. They know
that to upplv to a Legislative Ixnly f r an
out such nid. And now for the first tim
do they think it necessary fo call the law
'o their aid and support (or a party as
suming their name,) and under circum-
-i.nices 100, which involves suspicion of
fraud and deception. j
Let us for a moment Sir, retrospect the
origin and history of this ancient Societv ,;
and we will find that it is peculiarly enti
tled to our most respectful consideration.'
The Society of Friends was founded b
its to tin- justice or?' justice of what we
may do this day de pends. Then, I ow
is this question to be solved? hat
clue have we that will bring us to the
truth of the matter? We are well a
