Report on Female Factory

Evidence Type: Newspaper Report
9 November 1842


We receive intelligence from a credible quarter, that His Excellency has just made rather a sudden visitation to the Parramatta Factory, and has discovered, perhaps upon information privately given, that the rations served out to the prisoners is of the worst possible kind. The inference clearly is that there is an understanding between the contractor for the Factory and the recipient. There is a consequent probability of a sudden and peremtory [sic] dismissal of the delinquent parties. We shall resume the subject, as soon as our information is maturely considered, and corroborated by responsible parties.
