The Convict's Gastronomic Regenerator





Nutrition, Crime, Human Species, Physiology

    Reports on an article in the Hampshire Independent concerning the surprisingly high quality of the food given to convicts, and argues that this procedure is justified since 'scientific research' has shown that changing a 'rogue's diet' will 'renovate the whole man'. Suggests dishes for 'prison cookery' and other plans for 'correction by kindness'.
