The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 56
The brief limits of this Report and the pressure of home matters, almost preclude reference to the extensive foreign labours and correspondence of the Association. But these have been actively maintained throughout the year. Many thousands of papers and packets containing information on the objects promoted by this Association have been systematically posted to the chief centres of influence and of philanthropic effort on the Continent, in the United States, India, and the British Colonies. Many applications for such assistance have been received and cheerfully responded to. Official acknowledgments are made that this work of the Association is very useful and welcome.
The Committee greatly value the communications from their Foreign friends, and especially those from the active Secretaries of the Prison Associations of France (M. F. Desportes), and New York (Mr. W. M. F. Round), from Italy (M. Beltrani-Scalia), Michigan (Hon. C. Randall), also from Spain (Don E. Castellote), Denmark (Mr. F. Stuckenberg), Holland (M. Belinfante), Switzerland (Dr. Guillaume), Germany (Mm. Fohring and Krohne), Canada (Mr. Moylan), Pennsylvania (Mr. J. W. Leeds), and from M. de Olivekrona (of Sweden), M. Berden (of Belgium), and many others.
