The jail smelled bad because of all the body odor and filth, one of the first things Abigail notices as she enters. It was always an uncomfortable temperature, too hot in the summer, to cold in the winter. It was crowded, at one point there was up to 150 people in Salem Jail (Weiser).

The author describes an image about the kitchen and the rest room. The author describes the kitchen with following quotes, “The kitchen is a cavern,” “The floor is slick with spills,” and “Sinks everywhere are clogged with scraps of lettuce, decomposing lemon wedges, water-logged toast crusts”.
