· Current employment within the prison includes nailors, blacksmiths, shoemakers, coopers, wheelwrights, stone cutters, and others. Concerning funding the prison solely through convict labor, it is deemed unlikely due to the prison’s remote location, transportation expenses, weak infrastructure, and short sentences hindering skill acquisition.
· A proposal is made for the construction of a stepping mill (treadmill) within the prison grounds. It is believed that this mill would provide employment, deter criminal activities, and rehabilitate inmates. Its location is deemed favorable, considering nearby mills and potential customers.
· The provisions for the current year will be obtained through private contracts, allowing for better quality rations and potentially lower expense for the state.
