Notes

  • Epigraph:

    Newgate is poisoned with the effluvia of the sick, the stench of faeces. My readers may judge the malignity of the place when I assure them…that the leaves of my memorandum book were so tainted I could not use it before spreading it an hour or two in front of the fire.

    – John Howard, pamphleteer and social reformer, 1786
