Report on Bodmin gaol
Visiting magistrates of Bodmin gaol reported that drains, ordered last year, nearly finished, greatly improved atmosphere in the gaol, and consequently in the health of the prisoners. "There is a large Reservoir of Water at the head of the Drains, by means of which they may be entirely cleansed daily." Since appointment of new governor many necessary repairs had been made and a contract to repair the dilapidated roof drawn up. New arrangements to be made for classification of prisoners to effect new system of management. A new kitchen provided, where all prisoners to be served with allowance of food instead of cooking "for themselves at large Fires which were kept constantly burning in their day rooms." A laundry wash-house had been provided, where women sentenced to hard labour, would wash for the prisoners. This work would occupy almost all female prisoners. The apartment, previously occupied by the matron, to become the governor's office, from which he could see everyone who came into, or went out of, the gaol and house of correction. By building up the doorway of the Debtors' Ward and opening a way through into the gaol, the entrance to the debtors' prison would also be under the surveillance of the governor.
Reported that only new building necessary would be raising the infirmary roof, ordered at last sessions; also that since appointment of Mr. Everest a marked improvement in manner and conduct of prisoners had taken place. More efficient turnkeys and gaol servants to be appointed by the court. Expected that due to abolition of fees and perquisites, great saving would be made in annual expense. Every article to be bought by contract and all work to be by tender. Thomas Dungey appointed Head Turnkey at salary of £50 p.a.

Report of Visiting Justices of Bodmin gaol and bridewell
1. Continued satisfaction with the amended management and good order.
2. Reduction of expense and change of diet "not in the slightest degree prejudicial to their [the prisoners'] health".
3. On completion of buildings expected that expenses will be halved.
4. Treadwheel now erected and working, and governor anxious to connect corn mill machinery to it. Cost will be about £150, but there will be proportional advantages, as the present hand mill will not supply the prison's needs nor afford adequate labour for the class of prisoners employed at it.
5. Lower tier of sleeping cells in men's old bridewell completed and occupied. Women's gaol and bridewell also completed.
6. Remaining work on men's gaol proceeding according to means. New ward erected there for a third class of prisoners, and foundations laid for a fourth class in unoccupied adjoining space. Alterations complete with exception of sleeping accommodation, within the walls, for the turnkeys, "a measure essential to the due Security of the prisons and to be effected at a trifling additional Expense." Application made to justices from five "inferior Turnkeys" for increase in salary, now £30 p.a.
Governor's report
1. Said treadwell in use since 21 ult. Repeated request for attached grinding and dressing apparatus, cost not to exceed £145. Insufficient flour for prison at present.
2. Confirmed completion of lower tier of sleeping cells in old bridewell, also the Day Room which occupied as a ward for vagrants.
3. Also reiterated new accommodation for third and fourth class of prisoners, "notwithstanding the increased Number of Prisoners as well as the high price of Corn."
4. Reported improved discipline.
Chaplain's report
1. Reported improved conditions of prisoners and prison
2. Also "daily observance of religious worship", increased classification of prisoners, strict discipline "without severity", "an established dietary and the nicest cleanliness and regularity throughout" all combined to advance the great end of prison discipline, the reformation of the offender. The prisoners reported to be healthy and the "New Hospital has been but little occupied except in the case of Richards, an old man who died there last week of a natural decay".
3. Number of committals this year not exceeded that of last year, but a greater proportion of juvenile offenders "chiefly for robbing orchards and gardens... and many of them were in a state of lamentable ignorance."
4. A Sunday school and mutual instruction enabled many to read tolerably and almost all could repeat the Lord's Prayer, the Apostles' Creed and the Ten Commandments before discharge. Some of the adult prisoners were also instructed.
5. Committee of ladies constantly attend female prisoners.
6. Bibles, prayer-books and various tracts published by S.P.C.K. supplied to prisoners in all wards. Regular church services twice every Sabbath etc.
Surgeon's report
1. Favourable report on prisoners' health. Many cases of fever occurred but not infectious or of long duration. Main diseases brought to the prison by the vagrants.

Report of visiting justices to gaol and bridewell
Four years elapsed since total change in system made. Justices expressed their "perfect satisfaction". New governor was appointed 12 Feb. 1828.
They made comparison of expenditure on gaol for 4 years from year ending Easter 1828 showing amounts spent on building, totalling £18,078.16s.6d. For four succeeding years it was £15,133.19s.4d.
Spent on building and repairs in first period £1,871.16s.9d. and in second period £15,678.15s.8d.
Small portion of the saving was as a result of the abandonment of Launceston gaol at Easter 1829.
They hoped that the gaol expenses might have been less but noted that many repairs had been necessary to both gaol and bridewell "built not much more than fifty years ago". With regard to security, and also to accommodation, conditions "are now far from being in a perfect state".
Regarding health of prisoners the introduction of the system of "Dietary and Classification" cases of fever have been reduced. Increased accommodation in the infirmary had been provided, but had not been occupied. Praise was due to the governor who had superintended the improvements. Report dated Apr. 2 1832.

Report of visiting justices to gaol and bridewell
Essential alteration to female bridewell now progressing "at a very trifling expence" to effect a better classification of female prisoners.
Governor's report
Stated that 90 vagrants committed to prison since his last quarterly report, being exactly half the total of all prisoners, with a view to making their (the vagrants') punishment more severe. He recommended a reduced "Dietary" for vagrants as follows: If committed for one month or less 1½lbs. of bread daily. If committed for up to 2 months 1½lbs. of bread daily but additional gruel for breakfast and supper for remaining period. If committed for 3 months or more as above for first two months then full prison allowance but without extra bread for hard labour. This practice has been tried in other counties, producing good effects. Noted that many committals had been from local jurisdiction for which no charge can be made. The contractor conveying prisoners from Truro is paid by the county for carrying all prisoners, whether from local jurisdictions or otherwise, incurring a very heavy expense to the county.
Because of the spread of cholera morbus and particularly because the disease might be introduced to the prison by vagrants from infected places, the governor, in conjunction with the Surgeon, had fumigated the gaol with the result that not one case of the disease had appeared, and the hospital had been empty for many weeks.

Chaplain's report
Reported excellent condition of prisoners in the gaol and house of correction "under skilful management of the present Governor."
All prisoners, except those prevented by sickness, have attended chapel daily. Several prisoners have availed themselves of the system of mutual instruction, and have been enabled to learn to read prior to their discharge.

Continued appeal by Camborne against order of 27 Nov. last, for removal of Philip Rule, jun., his wife Betsy, and their daus. Harriet (6), and Caroline (4) from Gwinear. It was stated that Philip Rule, sen., the pauper's father, together with his parents and their other children, was removed, on 1 June 1789, from Camborne to St. Erth, bound, until 21 years old, by St. Erth parish officers to Richard Tredinnick, of St. Erth, farmer. The apprentice lived with his master for some years and served him in husbandry until R.T. became reduced in circumstances, and worked at the mines, employing his apprentice in the same work. He then moved to Phillack, taking his apprentice with him. About 2 years before the apprenticeship expired there was a dispute between the mistress and the apprentice, the latter leaving saying he would never return. Philip Rule, sen., then went to live with his parents in Camborne where they occupied a small cottage at 50s. a year, his father working as a lab. at Hirland Mine. A few days after his apprentice left R.T. found him (the apprentice) working for his (the apprentice's) father at Hirland Mine, and told the father that if he kept the apprentice he, R.T., "would take up his wages". The father said he didn't wish to keep the boy, but that he wouldn't go back. It was then agreed in May that the boy should be given up to the father "in consideration of four guineas to be paid on the next Mine Pay day for Ores on which the father and son were then working". The money was paid at next pay day on 16 Aug. following when R.T. delivered the indenture to the father. Whilst living with his father in Camborne, all the apprentice's wages were given to his father who supplied him with meat and clothes and other necessaries as he did to the rest of his children. When the apprentice became of age he received his own wages, and the indenture from his father. When the apprentice was removed to St. Erth his father went to live in Crowan, and was there, and also in Camborne, relieved by St. Erth parish officer: order reversed. Gwinear to pay Camborne ten guineas costs and maintenance.
