Sir, It is my duty, as residing Magistrate to report to Your Honor, that the Gaol is inconveniently full, and likely to become still more crowded. I have therefore the honor to request you will take into your earliest consideration the best means of disposing of the numerous prisoners necessarily committed. I have the honor to be Sir Your Obedient Servant (Frederick) (Berkley) St John P. M.
