'There are two cells, each 13 1/2 feet long, 9 feet broad, and 17 feet high, but there is no provision for lighting or warming them. The cells are unfit for use and could not be made fit. I was informed that there were three or four prisoners each week, and that none are kept more than an hour or two.'
