Lessons from the Norfolk Island experiment

Includes a report of some 15 pages from Lord Stanley to Sir John Eardley-Wilmot, acting Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land, concerning Captain Alexander Maconochie's experimental prison reforms at Norfolk Island. It effectively forms advice for the application of Maconochie's principles in Van Diemen's Land, some ten years after his service under Sir John Franklin. A similar report was prepared by Stanley for the Governor of New South Wales.
