Transcriber’s Note: The abandoned convicts (men, women and children ) were housed at Miray. They were provided with food, clothing, and shelter, tools (such as axes) and other items necessary for survival. The sick were cared for. It appears the surviving convicts did not stay in Cape Breton. The government, for their expenses in caring for the convicts, recompensed subscribers, or donors.
