My Dear Sir,

Re Donnelly matter

[...] I have no further news, except that the treatment of the prisoners in the gaol continues unsatisfactory. I am informed that they are occasionally permitted to have the comfort of their wives' society in their cells which appears irregular. I do not mean merely passing visits which might be reasonable & right. I do not say this from actual knowledge, but I have it from good authority. I have said nothing to the sheriff, as former representations resulted in nothing but promises which were not fulfilled. [...]

Yours truly,
Charles Hutchinson, Cty Atty
