§. 7. Other Rates

(6) 6 Observations

5. Observation the 5th. In the instance of these two last Rates
being the two Southwell Rates the smallness of the scale, in as compared with the largeness
of it in the Claimants case, is will be found found particularly observable.
In the Southwell Prison, in the abovementioned selected and the most favourable week, the
number of the Prisoners is not stated as more than 26,
of which Number 3 are un are stated as unemployed
