No. 55
10th May 1871
My Lord,
I have had the honor to receive Your Lordship's Circular Despatch of the 13th March, transmitting for consideration and Report two Tables, one relating to CriminalStatisticsManuscript image Statistics the other to Prison Discipline, which you propose should be inserted in the Annual "Blue Book."
2. I have examined these Tables and it does not appear to me that I could make any suggestion of value for their improvement, or modification. They seem comprehensive in character,andManuscript image and simple in arrangement. And I am quite alive to the circumstance that uniformity is essential for purposes of comparison.
3. I presume, however, that these Returns will scarcely be applicable to this Colony except as a part of the Dominion of Canada, and so far as they may be used in the other BritishNorthManuscript image North American Provinces.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your most obedient
Humble Servant
