January 29. 1778
The weather has improved since earlier this week. With the good weather the prison was again smoked today to rid us of the vermin that inhabit this place. Another 60 blankets were received in the prison and Mr. Heath distributed our allowance of cash. Mr. Rowe, the superintendent of the prison was here yesterday to oversee the masonry work to be completed in the officers’ apartment.

A newspaper was brought in and passed about that describes the bad conditions in America. Prices for goods are high and sometimes the goods cannot be had for any price. This makes me worry concerning the welfare of my family at home and how they are getting along. Another paper brought here tells us of Lord North’s desire to and plan to reconcile with America.
