Thank you
Hi Susie, the photo does not show on your question or on the profile of Henry Smith.
Hi David, I found it by clicking on the PDF link (image details)
Somebody being a pirate! Looks like the British caught him probably during the revolution attacking British ships

Thank you Susie for sharing this document with us.Most interesting, It shows that Henry was detained in 1776 aboard the vessel U.S. Brig. Dalton and was taken to Old Mill Prison, England and committed in 1777.

It does not show what the charges brought against him were or for how long he was imprisoned. Perhaps further research would reveal more detail in this regard. An awesome find indeed.
