Colorado Citizen, January 14, 1875, April 29, 1875, June 3, 1875, August 19, 1875; Gammel, comp., The Laws of Texas 1822-1897, vol. 7, p. 1309; Colorado County Police [Commissioners] Court Minutes, Book 1862-1876, pp. 386, 427. The new cells were apparently four-sided, independent structures which were installed inside the existing building. They were apparently much stronger than the earlier cells, for the building had to be strengthened to hold their weight. Immediately after installing the new cells, the commissioners court improved the jail further by adding a kitchen (see Colorado County Police [Commissioners] Court Minutes, Book 1862-1876, pp. 392, 438-439).
