    Acme of restless misery


    I would like to ask somebody to help me with the bold text.

    "I believe in Sunday as the Day of Rest, and the British Sunday is usually the acme of restless misery."

    The Drug, Aleister Crowley, 1909

    Am I right to understand the author means the British Sunday is anything but a quiet, peaceful day?

    Thank you
