With respect to self-regarding
offences consisting of acts which offend
against morality the application of this
Law would be absurd. The individual has
chosen to perform the act, to do the same
thing for to him would not be to punish him.

In offences against reputation,
consisting for instance in the propagation
of false reports affecting the character, the
Law cannot
It would be useless as a punishment to direct the
a similar false report to be propagated affecting the
character of the delinquent. The like evil
would not result from the circulation of what
\was acknowledged to be false.

In offences against Property
the punishment of retaliation would at all
times be defective in point of exemplarily &
efficacy and in many cases im altogether
inapplicable; those who are most apt to
injure others in this respect being by their
poverty unable to suffer in a similar
manner.

For a similar reason it cannot
be constantly applied to offences affecting
the civil condition of Individuals, to say
nothing of the reasons that might render
it ineligible if it were possible to be applied.
