The Molesworth committee and New South Wales

Priestley, Alison Maude


Sir William Molesworth saw in transportation the brazen mockery of all his ideals of punishment, and in New South Wales, the nemesis of irresponsibility. Transportation had incited, rewarded, and further corrupted British criminals, and the colony it had given birth to was visited a thousandfold by the sins of its fathers. In England and in New South Wales there were many who agreed, but there were others who thought the system a gift of Providence and New South Wales, the promised land.
