Sinclair in Prison!
"About the end of the 17th century John Sinclair of Rattar, in Caithness,
became indebted to Alexander Rorison, in Thurso, in the sum of £1400 and, on
his failure to pay, the machinery of the law was set in motion, with the
result that, in May 1700 he was confined as a debtor within the prison of
Tain. He remained in confinement till January 1702 when - taking advantage
of the insecure state of the prison of of the negligence or connivance of
the gaolers - he escaped."
