DISGRACEFUL-The Journal of last week portrays with ghoulish avidity an imaginary scene as occurring at the prison at the time Louise Miller, the female convict, was formally received as an inmate. The covert insult to the prison physician, Dr. Strout, was wholly uncalled for, but the broad and cowardly intimation that the chaplain, Mrs. O. W. Merrill, was present with the doctor and officers of the prison when the "unveiling” of the woman Miller took place, was a most wanton falsehood in its intent, a fouls slur upon a lady of the highest and purest womanly qualities, and a direct reflection upon the entire prison management.
We will only add, what it may be needless to state, that above correction is offered only for the purpose of dissipating any unfavorable impression among those who are not acquainted with the excellent management of the penitentiary and the unscrupulous and defamatory character of the Journal.
