CONSTITUTION OF THE PENNSYLVANIA PRISON SOCIETY.

When we consider that the obligations of benevolence, which arefounded on the precept and examples of the Author of Christianity, arenot cancelled by the follies or crimes of our fellow-creatures, and whenwe reflect upon the miseries, which penury, hunger, cold, unnecessaryseverity, unwholesome apartments, and guilt (the usual attendants ofprisons) involve with them, it becomes us to extend our compassion tothat part of mankind who are the subjects of those miseries. By the aidof humanity their undue and illegal sufferings may be prevented; the linkwhich should bind the whole family of mankind together, under all circumstances,be preserved unbroken; and such degree and modes of punishmentmay be discovered and suggested as may, instead of continuinghabits of vice, become the means of restoring our fellow-creatures to virtueand happiness. From a conviction of the truth and obligations of theseprinciples, the subscribers have associated themselves under the title of“The Pennsylvania Prison Society.”

For effecting these purposes they have adopted the followingConstitution:

ARTICLE I.

The officers of the Society shall consist of a President, two Vice-Presidents,two Secretaries, a Treasurer, who may be an undoubted first-classTrust and Safe Deposit Company, regularly chartered by the Stateor national authorities; two Counsellors, and an Acting Committee; allof whom shall first be nominated as suitable by the “Committee on Membershipin the Acting Committee,” a standing committee of that body.They shall be chosen by ballot at the annual meeting of the Society to beheld on the fourth Thursday in the First month (January) of each year, andshall continue in office until their successors are elected.

No person shall be placed in nomination for officers of the Society,or as a member of the Acting Committee who shall not have been previouslyappointed by a standing committee of the Acting Committee called“The Committee on Membership in the Acting Committee.” A majorityof the whole number of votes cast shall be required to elect any nominee.

In case an election for any cause shall not then be held, it shall bethe duty of the President to call a special meeting of the Society, withinthirty days, for the purpose of holding such election, of which at leastthree days’ notice shall be given.

ARTICLE II.

The President shall preside in all Meetings, and subscribe all publicacts of the Society. He may call special meetings whenever he maydeem it expedient, and shall do so when requested in writing by five members.In his absence one of the Vice-Presidents may act in his place.

ARTICLE III.

ARTICLE IV.
