In response to 18th and early 19th cent. prrisons, written by The Mysterious H.C. (posting for the first time from home with a graphical browser!) on March 25, 1998 at 19:54:14
Love the quote Henry! ;-)
I'm still fuzzy on some details. Was this gaol like a large house or more of an institution? Did they have the run of the building as long as they didn't leave the premises? Did the criminals (perhaps only on the gentleman's side?) pay their own expenses or just those of anyone they had living with them? If Jane or Cassandra did stay with Aunt Jane, would they have quarters of their own as long as they paid for them?
Kate, please tell me if I'm getting too far into Life and Times territory here and I'll be happy to move this.
