NEW YORK Jan. 14. 1901
Mrs. Anna M. Jackson,
217 East 15th Street, New York City.
My dear Mrs. Jackson:-
It seemed to me that the general title of the subject
was sufficient, namely"The legal punislinent of drunken and [disorderly]
offenders". Why not simply say that I will speak on that
topic? I do not think that the question has been solved in Massachusetts
or anywhere else. It is a discouraging problem. Perhaps
I may refer to European experience. I have no special panacea
to offer. I shall speak in favor of special asylums for inebriates,
but should hardly want to make that the title of my
remarks. The general theme suits me better.
I have noted the date of the 19th, but have not the
hour of the meeting. Is it at three or half past three ?
S. J. Barrows
