May 28. 1777
Today, Doctor Powers, and five others of the Charming Sally crew were sent on shore for examination and commitment to Mill Prison. It is with some satisfaction that we hear that Captain Brown made his escape yesterday during a break in his examination. We can only hope that he makes his way successfully back to America to bring word of our condition to our families. The joy expressed by the Sally’s crew was tempered by news that one of their mates, an old man named James Jutson, died two days ago at the Royal Hospital. He was well liked and will be missed by his friends.
