Description

Excerpt from Report of the Committee Appointed to Visit the Benevolent and Reformatory Institutions, Which Are Beneficiaries of the State A Special Committee has been appomted by the House of Delegates to consider the question, and it is to be hoped the defect will be remedied, as your Committee are fully impres sed with the conviction that some measures should be imme diately adopted, not only to prevent the evils complained of, but to secure the services of the now necessarilyoidle convicts, and thereby contributing to an increase of the revenue of the Institution, which is already self-sustaining, and yielding this, year a surplus over its liabilities of In con nection with this, it will be remarked that the prices of pro vision, clothing, &c., have materially increased, and in the last five years nearly 100 per cent. Your Committee exam ined the books of the Institution, Which are kept in an admira ble clerical style by the very efficient clerk, John J. C. Dougherty, Esq, to whose ability we bear cheerful testimony, as also to the thorough medical ability displayed by the Phy sician, Dr. E. R. Baer, who has faithfully labored day and night among the convicts to prevent the introduction of any disease among them, and though the typhus fever has been prevailing to an alarmingly fatal extent in the'baltimore City Jail, which immediately adjoins the Penitentiary, and only contains about one-half of the number confined in the latter. Dr. Baer has, by his faithful and skilful attention, been successful in preventing any spread of it in his hospital, and in the treatment of. The only three cases which occurred, was successful, none of them proving fatal. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
