November 30. 1777
Last night I was prepared to escape from this prison along with many of the other people. Our plan was to dig a hole under the back wall of the Long Prison and escape through the adjoining field during stormy weather. However, when we first broke through the turf outside the wall we found a lamppost nearby illuminating the surrounding area and thought better of it. I was detemined to go along with Joseph and Guppy despite our lack of currency to pay our way. We have heard that there are a number of British citizens that sympathize with our American cause and would aid us in our flight.
