An appeal to the inhabitants of Her Majesty's Canadian provinces against the law authorizing imprisonment for debt in Canada West; in which is embodied a history of the sufferings and wrongs of Mr. Sylvester Brown, a prisoner for eighteen months in the jail at Chatham; together with a full exposition of the rascality practised by soulless creditors, crafty lawyers, plundering sheriffs, heartless bailiffs brutal jailors and turnkeys, and gouty judges; to which are added full and complete details of other cases in which poor, but honest and industrious people have been stripped of their all by the operation of an iniquitous law; and also copious quotations from the act falsely entitle, "The act for the abolition of imprisonment for debt."
