Evidence

"we had reached a cell in the west wing, to which the first letter was addressed. The women were locked up in their cells during tea-time, and the clerk, placing her mouth close against the door, called the name of the prisoner located within. ""Yes, mum"", was the answer that came from the cell. ""Here"s a letter for you"", added the clerk, as she stooped down and threw the document under the door. In a moment there was a postive scream of delight from within, followed by a cry of ""Oh! how glad I am"". Then we could hear the poor creature tear open the sheet, and begin mumbling the contents to herself in half hysteric tones."
