Author Perkins, Josephine Amelia, b. 1818.

Title The female prisoner, once respected and beloved, but late the most wretched of womankind [electronic resource] : narrative of the life and singular adventures of Josephine Amelia Perkins, a young woman, who although in early life was deservedly esteemed for her exem[p]lary behavior, yet for the three years last past, (friendless and unprotected,) has been unhappily addicted to a criminal propensity, more singular and surprising in its nature (for one of her sex,) than can be found on record, in the commission of which she has been four several times detected, twice pardoned on account of her sex, o[n]ce for reason of supposed insanity, and the fourth and last time, convicted and sentenced to two years imprisonment in Madison County Jail, Kentucky : Annexed is a well-written address to parents and children.

Published New-York : C. Harrison, and others, Publishers, 1839.
