James was only 9 when he was transported for stealing three boxes of toy. In the surgeons report a man was seen in his hammock He spent two days in solitary for laughing in chapel. He was sent to Point Pier to work with full grown men. He received his certificate of freedom 11\9\1850. This is the worst one I have read
