Mr. Cutler has taken a census of the prison again and it now stands at:
233 in the Long Prison
17 “ Itchy do.
14 “ Burnells do.
6 “ Hospital.
5 “ Black Hole
For a total of 275 American prisoners.

We were also visited by a Marblehead man who has served on a British Man ‘O War since the beginning of the war and he says that a number of Marbleheaders are on the Blenheim.
