July 8. 1777
Today sailed from the Sound the fleet of transports for America and along with it my message to Rebecca. Little could I have imagined I would wish a British fleet well as it sailed for America.

Last night the sentries burst into the prison at about 3AM as they heard several of our men talking, laughing and singing. Mr. George was taken out of the prison and committed to the Black Hole where he is to be put on half rations and isolated from the rest of us for forty days. Very harsh treatment indeed and served to cause no little grumbling among the people once the sentries departed.
