Diary of A Resurrectionist, Friday 24th January 1812

Friday 24th.
Met at 11 at night. Met the patrols. Got one Hospital Crib and 6 at Bermondsey, took them to Barthol’w, sent 3 to the Country.

Met the patrols (of the watch) but clearly this did not result in further trouble, as it had done for Butler earlier in the month. Even so, mentioned in this way, it was likely they had to be evaded.

7 subjects raised, one at Snows Fields and 6 at Bermondsey. They were taken to St Bartholomew’s Hospital.

Whereabouts in the Country the 3 subjects were sent to is not specifed.
