April 29. 1778
The night before last William Carpenter and Alexander Fraser, both young men from the Charming Sally’s crew attempted to make their escape by tying together strips made from their hammocks and blankets and climbing over the wall but were both captured and committed to the Black Hole. They were suspected of being informants and thought it best to make their escape before they were found out.

Today the guards came in and separated all of the negroes from the rest of us and moved them into the itchy yard.
