Excerpt from Report of a Drawing-Room Conference on Boarding-Out Pauper Children: June, 1876
Then it is said that you have no fit class of people in England to whom to entrust the children. You, Sir Charles, know more about the social and moral condition of rural England than I do; but I have recently heard from persons residing in various districts that in their own counties no difficulty on this score need be anticipated. (hear.) Let me say in conclusion that close, habitual, and vigilant supervision is the key-note of the system. If you can get district committees to undertake the work, and if you can put upon these committees ladies like Mrs. Senior or Miss Hill, I see no reason why the system should not succeed in England as it has succeeded in Scotland.
