Folio 1: 19th March 1821; received eighty convicts from the Justitia, No sick.

Folio 5: 3rd April 1821; struck one iron off John Job cook’s mate and handcuffed James Henwright, William Smith and Ralph Booth for swearing and threatening to strike one of the prisoners who I appointed to [help?] in the prison, also Charles Gaugh (boy) for stealing.
Folio 9: 14th April 1821; made application for some fresh beef for the prisoners and guard to Mr. Ebsworthy the commander. Flogged Charles Gough and Thomas Hepwell (boy) for stealing, the former I have been obliged to threaten repeatedly, but all to no effect, in fact there is hardly a day without some complaint being made against him, each of them got six lashes.
