    Excerpt from Prison Problems: Propounded in Prose and Poetry

    Abraham Lincoln, then only a young man, visited New Orleans, stood before a slave market and saw human beings sold at public auction, took this secret vow: If ever I get a chance to strike that insti tution a blow, I will do it. With Lincoln's view fresh in his memory a gaunt, callow youth, on his first real excursion into the big world visited the Ohio State penitentiary where the sight of a horde of lazy hirelings sitting with guns across their knees, oozing out an existence as guards over their fellowmen who slaved with down cast eyes, heavy hearts and fettered hopes, not that they might be reformed half so much as that greater profits might be piled up for the contractors whose slaves these prisoners were; contrasting the life of the guards and keepers with the Simon Legrees of slavery times, as that youth left that relic of the dark ages he took Lincoln's vow: If I ever get a chance to strike that institution a blow, I'll do it.

    This volume of Prison Problems was conceived, compiled and is sent forth as an effort to hit that inhuman prison policy that treats men as criminals instead of looking upon them as brothers.
