Discolourment and Disfigurement

By Stigmatization

In Poland the symbolical method of [...]
expression is added to the liberal: the initial
letter of the Crime is enclosed in the figure
of a Gallows. In Kurdistan among
the Gentoos a very whimsical kind of symbol
is made use of as a stigma.[a]

In France those who are sentenced to the punishment
of the Galleys are so stigmatized with
the letters G.A.Z.†Code Penal p.138. In some cases part of the punishment
for Theft is to be stigmatized with the
letter V being the first letter of the word Vol:
for a second offence, with two V's.IIII Ibid. p.104, 105.

The other
To this Sumy head may be referred the practise of

a cloathing delinquents in a particular garb; set
so for what purpose
to serve as a token of
their delinquency:⊞ except that in this
latter case the deformation disfigurement is of the
transient kind, in
the other punishment discolourment, and that
of the permanent kind.
for which For this purpose some [...] peculiarity
is natural adopted which one as it is
obvious no one would voluntarily effect. Thus
at Hanover in Germany poor delinquents doomed
to labour in are distinguished by a black sleeve
to a white coat.Howard, Slate 110. This expedient is seems to
be principally calculated to prevent escape during
the continuance of the other punishments. But
in the way of ignoring it cannot but operated something
in the way of as a punishment of itself.
