Remarks on Prisons and Prison Discipline in the United States

By Dorothea Lynde Dix | Go to book overview

convicts, no matron; in Virginia prison are 15 women-convicts, no matron; in the Washington prison, D. C., 4 women, a year since, no matron; in the Maryland prison were 15 women under the charge of an energetic matron, who earnestly desires to maintain order, without resorting to severe restraints and punishments; these cannot be always dispensed with. There is too little provision for moral instruction in this department.

The product of women's labor in the State prisons, fails to meet the expenses of their department. I should judge it greatly more advantageous in all respects, to sentence women- convicts to the county houses of correction, rather than connect their prisons, with those of the men-convicts, especially also if their numbers are so few that it is judged inexpedient to appoint a matron.


NOTE.

See page 30.

There seems to have been an error of the press in the official document from which was quoted the average of pardons in the State of New-York, from the year 1825 to 1835 inclusive. The number stated, as 1 to 4, pardoned during those years, appears to be erroneous. I have not had the opportunity of consulting the original papers from which the document was printed.
