The padroni are often very severe, and treat the children just like slaves.
The padroni—that is the masters—having thus gained possession of the children, they bring them to England.
Another instance of the rapacity of the padroni is illustrated by the following case, of even more recent date.
Doubtless this would have a very good effect, and the gains of the padroni would be sensibly diminished.
The padroni do not confine their attentions only to children, but frequently bring over whole families as well.
This is no uncommon occurrence, for the padroni are men utterly without principle, and thoroughly bad in every way.
