'These cells were clean, and some trifling attempts have been made since my last visit to improve their ventilation; but they are altogether defective in size and other requisites, and quite unworthy of a town, which in other respects, has such good reason to pride itself on its public establishments ... The greatest number confined at one time during the year has been 12.'
