But the exigency respecting the female is of more (I understand) a very pressing
one. – If so, I am ready solicitous to do the best whatever may be in
my power towards meeting this exigency, with the utmost promptitude.

Gentlemen apprehensions (I understand) are pretty
must alive to the danger of prison breaking insurrection and forcible escape on the part
of males: these such apprehensions will not be equally (I suppose) be excited

the Inspection principle (a principle just as easily
built upon in such a case as any other a principle) in any

building that could be suggested for the purpose of with a view to dispatch
could be suggested, might be to in such a case for safe custody.

it bring being the destination not to see the prisoners, or any
of them, but in the event and at the moment of eruption, there

Might not such a place as Chelsea Hospital be resorted to for this purpose?
