Sunday July 6. 1777
It being Sunday many of the local people came out from Plymouth and Dock to visit but the guard kept the outer gate closed to prevent them from seeing us. One of our enterprising boys was able to hang a cloth bag by a string out of a small window from the second floor on the back side of the Long Prison. Some of the people placed 6 shillings in the bag for us but the guards found them out and later confiscated the money from us. Last night the lamps recently installed about the walls of the yard were lit.
