July 17. 1777
Pleasant weather. About 40 of our men have come down with the small pox in the past few days, all of whom had innoculated themselves from those who had gotten it naturally. It is said that those innoculated in this way will not have so severe a bout as those who get it naturally. The prison doctor tells me that Guppy should return to the prison tomorrow.
