General Hard Labour Cheapness Scheme &c.

The first of these courses is liable to the following
objections.

1st. It is not every occupation that can be carried
on in a prison: few or none can be carried on there as conveniently
as elsewhere. In every case there would be
the inconvenience of the Master's being obliged to
go backwards and forwards to and from the Prison
to fetch and carry his work.

2. The Gaoler must be paid in such case,
as well in compensation for his trouble, as to give
him an interest in seeing that the work is done.
The best way wold be that the should earnings should
pass through his hands, and that he should have
so much in the Pound. The transactions being
complicated, especially those of the Prisoners thus circumstanced
were are many, Books must be kept. All
this together would make the deduction considerable.
The charge of maintaining him would also be to be
deducted, unless the party injured is to reap all the
profit, and the public be at all the expence.

The second course is free from both those objections.
But it may require a number of nice
and minute regulations to guard against impunity
on the one hand, and hardship on the other. I will
sketch out a loose outline of a plan calculated to
obviate both those inconveniences.

1 Let the power of the Master over the delinquent be
the same as that of a Master over an apprentice.

2. Let the parties to the contract be 1st The party
