In bringing before this society the subject of prisons, I feel that no apology is required. It is one well suited for full and serious consideration before a society founded for the purpose of discussing social questions. At present, however, I shall confine this paper to dealing with the information gained during a somewhat limited visit to the three countries where I spent my vacation last summer. I propose briefly to describe the treatment of prisoners in Belgium, Germany, and Italy, the regulations in force, and some of the main differences between our system and that pursued in those three countries.
