January 9. 1778
A gentleman from the subscription committee at Bristol visited us today with news of 200£ having been contributed towards our benefit in Bristol and 2660£ in London. He also brought news of 140 Americans likewise held prisoner at Portsmouth. We received 300 red herring and a 3 penny loaf extra to each mess.
