Sunday July 13. 1777
Today Cowdry placed the occupants of the itchy ward on half rations for refusing to reveal how Henry Lunt escaped yesterday. He also placed a guard outside their quarters so that we could not secret them any of our rations. This evening Mr. George was returned after his short elopement. We hear no word of the others who escaped yesterday.

I was told by the prison Doctor that Guppy has come through the worst of his bout with the small pox. He is very lame and scarred but should be returned to the Long Prison soon.
