This person is farther secured by a chain from his neck to his ankle,
from whence another chain proceeds, round one of the corner posts of
his wooden cage , the entrance to which is through two moveable bars ;
these bars are fastened by an iron bolt, that passes through some staples, and is prevented from sliding, by a padlock.
A plank serves this prisoner for a seat, and for a bed.
