August 17. 1777
I continue in the prison hospital and feel somewhat better.

Captain Lee and his crew from the Brig Fancy have been brought to the prison over the past several days. The Fancy was owned by the Tracy’s of Newburyport but sailed from Marblehead. The Fancy was taken by the Foudroyant having been driven on shore by said ship at Mount’s Bay. Before her capture she had taken four prizes.
