Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Causes of their own crime, stated by convicts: '37. I became acquainted with some young fellows who had less regard for Sunday than I had been accustomed to. Be degrees, I went once, instead of twice, to chapel; then I got fond of theatres - going, perhaps, once or twice a week; then came public houses, a distaste for religion, novel reading, Sunday newspapers, and an ardent desire to see what is termed "London Life", - that is, scenes of profligacy and vice.'
