Excerpt from The Vice Commission of Philadelphia: A Report on Existing Conditions With Recommendations to the Honorable Rudolph Blankenburg, Mayor of Philadelphia We have found this statement to be the exact truth. It has been called the Problem Of the Ages, and so it is. When we entered upon the discharge of our duties it was without any settled notions or opinions; we had no theories to exploit; we knew as much about the social evil as the average citizen, which is practically nothing at all; we determined, therefore, to study the problem in all its phases and aspects, and to base our conclusions not upon prejudice, - religious, moral, or social, - but entirely upon the facts as we found them. The value of our report will simply be the worth to be attached to the recommendations of a score of citizens who have spared neither pains nor labor to reach sensible and practical conclusions after nearly a year of patient study.
