Sunday February 1. 1778
Cloudy. Our Captain Eleazer Johnston along with captains Henry Johnston, Boardman, Samuel Treadwell and Richard Deal made their escape last night at about 9 PM from their prison with the aid of two sentinels sympathetic to our cause. The sentinels were given suits of clothes to replace their proper uniforms by Captain Henry Johnston and they also made their escape but were soon captured.
