'There are six cells, each 9 1/2 feet long, 4 1/2 feet broad, and 8 feet high. They open into a yard, and in winter all the lower cells are damp. The only provision for light and ventilation is by apertures in the cell doors. Only two of the cells are warmed. The place is secure. The prisoners have only benches to lie on.'
