Saturday to the Westgate at Newport with my Master (Stephens)
and John Gibby - I had not made any Statement before I was
asked if I had anything to say against John Gibby. I was asked

before at the workhouse by a Police Officer or anyone else - I was

Statement - I now give my Statement because I am on Oath - That
Gentleman (Mr. Phelps) Yesterday did not tell me I was to give Evidence
what I said Yesterday in the Gaol was taken down - I did not
know for what use until I came here to day - I was absent from
home for a fortnight - John Gibby told me to go for fear I should be
taken - I went and came back by myself - When Jenkin Morgan
came to the Shop and asked him to make a Spear for him my
Master said he would and I saw him make it, but I did not see him
deliver it to Morgan - I was not had in the large room at the

man Mr. Phelps ever questioned me - My master, self and Gibby were

Evidence against them - I told my Master if I was called I would
give Witness and my Master said he would do the same thing -

of -
