The Kent Justices and the Howard Association.
"Your Committee would recommend the perusal, by individual members of the Court, of the Report of the Howard Association before referred to; the object of that Report being the education of the public mind in reference to page 7 the causes and prevention of the constantly increasing evils of Vagrancy and its attendant consequences."
"Your Committee are very desirous that the attention of Boards of Guardians should be directed to the extracts from a Report recently issued by the Howard Association, which are quoted in the last Report of the Committee of Justices, upon Vagrancy, in the County of Kent, with regard to the evils of Indiscriminate Almsgiving; and they would urge them to adopt every means in their power to induce the public to discontinue the practice."
