p.86 Bathing - About every season, during the prevalence of the warm weather, the inhabitants of Kingston, who live contiguous to the water side, are frequently annoyed, and more particularly on the Sabbath day, by a number of individuals, both men and boys, persisting in this practice. Last Sunday, as late as nine o'clock in the morning, while people were assembling for the worship of God, MEN were seen exposing themselves in the most indecent manner, from the hull and bowsprit of the Schooner Two Sisters, in full view of those who might be passing in one of our most public streets, in a perfect state of nudity. We are informed from a highly respectable legal source, that such offences against all decency and good breeding are indictable; and we would therefore recommend those who have been guilty of the like practices, to do so no more. - Our natives from the forest, would blush at such indecencies.
