September 25. 1777
The prison master ordered that the wall be raised by five feet to prevent others from going over. Meanwhile, Beauty, a negro from the Sally’s crew was captured in Mrs. Mays garden after using the workman’s staging to make his way out. He was put in the Black Hole on his return. William Ford, a trouble making Virginian from our Dolton crew, was also detected trying to get over the wall today and committed to the Black Hole.

We hear that the American privateer Lexington, sixteen guns, Captain Henry Johnson, was taken by a British cutter of inferior size.
