Folio 1: 19th March 1821; received eighty convicts from the Justitia, No sick.
Folios 3-4: 28th March 1821; a great number of the prisoners complained of various theft being committed in the prison during the night, and James Thompson was caught with his hand in one of their pockets, put him in double irons. Handcuffed Griffith David for fighting with the men who were employed in cleaning the prison, also Thomas Gardiner for filthiness and other improper conduct. Ordered one iron off William Wells for coming forward and giving me the names of the aforesaid. At 6pm ordered the handcuffs to be taken off from the men above mentioned.
