Overview
Excerpt from After Prison What?

My point of view is that of the cell. All I know of this great sad problem that casts its shadow so much further than the high walls of prison I have learned from those for whom I work, and my great joy in every labor is the knowledge that the boys are with me. In Speaking of them thus I do so in prison parlance; for just as Masons on the floor call each other Brothers; soldiers in camp Comrades; men in college Fellows so we of the prison use the term The Boys, and leave unspoken that hated word Convict, which seems to vibrate with the sound of clanging chains and shuffling lock-step.

If I do not write of others, who, during the past century, have worked in prison reform, it is not that I have disregarded their efforts, but as this is a record of what I have personally seen and learned, space and time will not permit the recording of experiences which can doubtless be read elsewhere.
