The idea for this volume resulted from the preparation of a bulletin on poor relief in North Carolina for the State Board of Charities and Public Welfare. Beginning with the problems of pauperism, the author discusses the conditions of the three classes of poor: the able-bodied rogues, the impotent poor, and the children. He offers suggestions for possible solutions of the problems in poor relief.

Originally published in 1928.
