Opis: Report in Favor of the Abolition of the Punishment of Death by Law - O'sullivan John L.

Excerpt from Report in Favor of the Abolition of the Punishment of Death by Law: Made to the Legislature of the State of New York, April 14, 1841
A second edition of the following Report being called for by the public demand, it is deemed proper to add to it a brief statement of the action of the body to which it was made, on the Bill by which it was accompanied.
From the great accumulation and pressure of business before the House of Assembly, it proved impossible to call the Bill up for consideration until within a few days of the adjournment. The same cause rendered it also necessary for its friends to allow it to pass to the vote without debate - without even a reply to three adverse speeches, of a character calculated to be extremely prejudicial to its success. Notwithstanding these unfavorable circumstances, on the first vote (that of ordering the Bill to its third reading) it was carried in the affirmative by a majority of five, the vote being, Ayes 57, Noes 52. Unfortunately it could not be brought up for the vote on its final passage until a late hour of a night session, when, from the physical exhaustion of a large number of Members, the attendance was very thin. It was then lost by the same majority of five, the vote being, Ayes 47, Noes 52. Among the absentees there was a large preponderance of its friends; and if the House had been full, it would been carried by a decisive majority. At that period of the session, and under the forms and rules of procedure of the body, a reconsideration was impossible, and it became necessary to let the subject lie over till the next session.
These circumstances are mentioned to dispel the discouragement which might be felt by some of the friends of this important and noble reform in our penal legislation, from the fact of its failure on this occasion. There appears every reason to expect its passage at the next session by a large majority; for the promotion of which object it is desirable that as numerous petitions, as numerably signed, as possible, should be addressed to the next Legislature.
