December 9. 1777
Two days ago Mr. Cowdry informed us of a letter that he had received from the Board in London instructing him to place us all on half allowance until the man guilty of planning the latest failed escape was given over. We took up a collection to be applied to pay a volunteer who would be committed to the Black Hole. This volunteer came forward today and is committed to the Black Hole for 40 days. Mr. Cowdry shows uncommon humane behavior by allowing him as many indulgences as possible within the bounds of his instructions.
