'This lock up house which stands in a convenient situation at the outskirts of the town and near the county prison, has been newly built, having been in use less than two years. There are two cells, of about the ordinary size in new lock up houses, with rooms for the keeper and his wife. The cells are dry, and properly lighted, warmed, and ventilated. They are also secure. The bedding was good and sufficient.'
