Sivu 85 - I have no doubt that many convicts who might have been rendered useful and good men, had they been treated with humane and reasonable control, have sunk into despondence by the unfeeling treatment of such masters ; and that many of those wretched men, driven to acts of violence by harsh usage, and who by a contrary treatment might have been reformed, have betaken themselves to the woods, where they can only subsist by plunder, and have terminated their lives on the gallows...

Sivu 28 - F. in the shade, and 125 when exposed to their influence. They seldom last more than a few days, and are cleared off by a thunder storm.
