Clark went into the Beer house & I followed him
We drank 4 or 5 pints of Beer there. I saw
Morgan in the house before we went out
Morgan said it was near 9 o'Clock & that
it was time for me to go home. I and
Clark then went to the door & crosdover to
the other side of the Street. I saw Clark
talk to a man on the other side of the road
directly that we got out of the beer house house.
I do not know that Man it was a very dark
night. I believe it to be the same man as we
had seen before. I heard Clark & the man talk
together at the beer house door outside.
They were talking about the Chartists and
something that had taken place the night before.
I heard him say Could not the mob of
10.000 beat off the Military Soldiers from the tops of the
Houses with Bricks, Clark said if Soldiers
were called on they would do their duty. He
asked if the soldiers would fire on the Chartists
if there was a row in the Town. Clark said
they would do their duty which would be
to fire on them. I heard Clark say good night
friend I will see you again tomorrow. I
am not sure that the person I saw at the beer
house was the person I had before seen. From
his voice his welch voice I should think it
was the same person His voice was similar
to the one I had heard before.
