January 22. 1779
Today the agent called all of us into the yard and read out the names of the 100 men that would be first exchanged in the cartel. To my great joy, my name was read out. Joseph Shillaber's name was also on the list, but but to our great regret Guppy Studley's was not. We are to be exchanged according to the order by which we were committed to the prison which includes most of the 86 men from the Dolton still now in prison; the rest either having escaped, entered the British service or died.
