May 27. 1777
Finally the rumors that our people will be sent on shore to Mill Prison prove to be true. A marine guard came today and took Captain Brown, his sailing master, gunner, Dr. Hotchkiss, Mr. George (a volunteer) and 2 of the crew from the sloop Charming Sally, on shore to be examined before commitment to Mill Prison. The rest of us now wait here on the Blenheim in anticipation of our own examination.
