§ The Earl of Suffolk begged leave to trespass, tho' aware it was not strictly regular, shortly upon the attention of their lordship, relative to a topic of some importance: he adverted to what had been alledged on the part of Mr. Todd Jones. Many of those facts, he had the satisfaction to state, were far from being true. He derived his information on the subject from a highly respected friend, and gallant officer, general sir Eyre Coo[...]re; that officer commanded for some time in the district in which Mr. Jones was imprisoned. So far from his treatment being harsh and 798 severe, it was humane; and, as far as circumstances would permit, comfortable. His allowance was liberal: he was accommodated with a good, comfortable room, favoured every day with walking for air and exercise, in the prison yard; and, above all, he was indulged with a female a tendant to wait on him; a favour, he believed, not usually conferred on persons in his situation. He had these facts from an authority in which he could confide; and, he thought it incumbent on him thus publicly to state them.
