Quasi-Imprisonment, Relegation and Banishment examined

NOTE continued

get somewhat more for them than could be got for
Houses in the same condition out of the Rules. Besides
this advanced Rent the prisoner pays for the indulgence
which go towards the Jailer's salary.

[Text resumed]
In point of Certainty they have none of them any
thing to distinguish them from other punishments.

In point of Equability they are all of them
deficient(1) (1) Note
This inequability may
be illustrated by the
History of the Young
Venetian noble relegated
to the Isle of Candia.
Despairing of being allowed
again to revisit the walls
of his native City and of
again embracing his friends
& his aged Father he committed
another crime unpardonable
by the laws of the State
because he knew that
he should then be
reconveyed to Venice

but especially the two latter [and most
of all the last.]

Quasi-Imprisonment can scarcely but be a To be confined to within the circuit of a small town
can scarcely but be a
punishment in some degree to almost all any one: though
to some more, to others less. Be Relegat To live out
of one's own or province, or out of one's own country
is a very severe punishment to many: but
to many it is none at all.

It is impossible to state with any accuracy the
difference in this respect between Relegation and
Banishment. In one point of view it should seem
as if Banishment were the more penal. For the
difference in point of Laws, Language Climate and Customs between one's own country province and
another province of a one's own state is upon an
average not likely to be so great as between one's
own province and another a foreign state. In Nations
however that have Colonies it will generally
happen that there are Provinces more dissimilar
to one another upon the whole in those respects than some of those
Provinces may be to other Provinces of neighbouring
nations. An Englishman could not find near so great How gr small a change for instance would
a change in going from an Englishman find in crossing from Dover
