Excerpt from Nine Years Among the Convicts: Or Prison Reminiscences

During my Chaplaincy I endeavored to acquaint myself with the history of each individual under my charge, and to mark the various incidents that might be supposed to have aided in the formation of his character. And this I found it easy to do, as the convicts were not allowed to converse with any other person, except in the few words necessary to carry on their work, or an occasional conversation with the Warden or Deputy.

There are few persons in whom "secretiveness" is so largely developed as not to wish to divulge to some one. Shut up alone in silence, pondering over their life hour after hour, they long to speak; their secrets become painful and hard to keep, and the pleasant countenance and kind manners of a Chaplain will call them out. Of hundreds I have associated with as pastor, few, very few, seemed to hesitate to speak freely of their past history, and I think most of them truthfully.

Of course I shall not betray the confidence thus reposed in me, by spreading upon the pages of this book the history of these men, to their injury, or to the shame or grief of their relatives. It has been my object in writing these pages,

1st. To write only what I believe true.
