Interesting Record: Dublin Female Penitentiary

The report details the original plan of the Dublin Female Penitentiary, stating foremost that it is to be open to females of all persuasion. It goes on to state that it is a necessity to build another asylum for "the reception of unfortunate females plunged in sin, but from conviction, willing to quit the paths of vice, and to whom might be afforded the means of earning a subsistence by honest industry, together with the most probable mode of being again restored the useful members, and not the pests, of their respective stations in society." The report underlines the inception of a fund, to raise money for the penitentiary's growth and quality of life.
