Middlctown road near Sleighton Farms The site was ideal for a prison farm buti Dr Ellen Pot ter secretary of welfare vetoed the farm because it was too close to the fcilelghton Farm school The next

letter was followed by an answer on the part ot the commis sioners who denied that they were responsible for the condition in the jail but that it was rather the lack of discipline by allowing prisoners to get possession of iron pipe with which they broke down cell doors The commissioners at the same time informed the inspectors that they had secured an option on the land in Aston towjiship for a prison farm colony The inspectors a few days later received another letter from the in spectors in which they sharply de ninndcd that the commissioners remedy the conditions at the jail and letter was also answered by the commissioners It letters many believe which caused a wide breach between the commissioners nnd the inspec and it resulted in Judges Frone iioM and BroomaH calling the two Iodies together in aconference At that conference the jail situation was frone over but there was lack of harmony The inspectors at that meeting asked thai something bo lone immediately at the
