Description and Holding Information
House. Comm. on Law concerning the Death Penalty. Report, 1835
House No. 36 On January 14, 1835, a three man committee was to consider repealing the death penalty. On February 25, 1835, the committee sent a
report: It recommended abolishing the death penalty and then discussed the pros and cons from p. 3-17. Pages 19-20: An Act to abolish the death
penalty, 1835. The death penalty in all cases was abolished. The guilty person would be in solitary confinement for a year and then at hard labor for the
rest of his life. The convicted person would be treated as if he had died--he lost any property he held, was legally divorced from his wife, and had
no power or authority over anything or anyone. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   On motion, ordered, that, Messrs. Rantoul, of Gloucester, Ruggles, of Fall River, and H.G. Rice, of Boston, be a committee to consider the expediency of repealing all such laws and parts of laws, as provide for the infliction of the punishment of death.
