August 14. 1777
I continue in the prison hospital. My pox have come out but not so bad as with some others and although painful I cannot complain overly. Samuel Lambert from Martha’s Vineyard has lost his eye to the pox. There are eleven of us in the hospital suffering from this ailment.

I hear word that a number of new prisoners are brought to Mill Prison, having recently been captured on American privateers. Also, many of those that escaped on the 9th instant have been captutred and returned to the prison.
