Excerpt from A Vindication of the Separate System of Prison Discipline: From the Misrepresentations of the North American Review, July, 1839
The long-pending controversy respecting the comparative merits of the Auburn (or silent) and the Pennsylvania (or se parate) systems of prison discipline, is reduced by the July number of the North American Review to very narrow limits; and, as the writer is evidently the friend and advocate of the former, we may suppose that the claim which he asserts in its behalf is presented in the most favourable aspect, and with all the advantages of the latest and fullest experience.
