WHEREAS, The messengers and visitors composing this Convention persistently, continuously and good-naturedly ignore the by-law forbidding applause, despite the efforts of our moderators to the contrary; and

WHEREAS, We believe that applause, as an expression of hearty spiritual approval is neither inimical to, nor subversive of, the spirit of aggressive Christianity; and

WHEREAS, We believe that a body of Christian citizens should set a wholesome example of obedience to law before their own eyes and the eyes of the public;

Therefore, Be it RESOLVED, That by-law Number 10 forbidding applause is hereby repeated.
