Sullivan, Ashton and Francis were taken with the fever on the 4th, and conveyed to the Howard Infirmary. Myers and Ward were taken there also to nurse them. Under the advice of the acting Mayor, from the fear that the fever might spread among them, I discharged the remaining seven—a course which entirely met my own approval, as there was actual danger of the fever spreading.

Wm. Carrington—under sentence for swindling; for three months from 26th of July, 1855. Still in jail.
