April 26. 1778
Black Cuff and Caesar, two negroes, a man and a boy, were found out to be informing on those of us who attempted to escape from the prison. Before this another man had been blamed for this traitorous behavior. After examination Caesar was whipped by another boy and Black Cuff was given 3 dozen stripes by the wrongly accused man. Black Cuff later escaped over the prison wall to another yard to save his ears which had also been threatened. He and Caesar are now kept separated from us.
