October 5. 1777
One of the prison guards was tried by Court Martial today under suspicion that he took a bribe to allow Capt. Boardman, Captain Lee, Mr. Morris, Mr. Cutler and Mr. Shoemaker out of the itchy ward for their escape. However, the Court could not obtain sufficient evidence against him and he was released. One William Smith who escaped on the 20th of September was returned to the prison this day and committed to the Black Hole. The remainder of the Lexington’s men were brought here today with the exception of the Frenchmen who were also part of the crew.
