Description The Prison Association od New York, 135 East 15th Street. CHARLTON T. LEWIS, PRESIDENT. CORNELIUS B. GOLD, TREASURER. EUGENE SMITH, SECRETARY. SAMUEL J. BARROWS, COR. SEC. D. E. KIMBALL, AGENT. 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 ? Yours cordially, S. J. Barrows
