know them - I did not see them do anything with the pikes
I saw them go out one after another, they had these Sticks
in their hands and the spears were on them - I saw Jenkin -
go out he had one I did not see anything else - I
I saw a Bayonet in the house but I did not see Morgan take
it with him - I saw John Gibby go out - he was in the house
when I saw them fastening on the pikes - I went to Jenkin Morgan
because he met me the day before and told me to come there -
John Gibby told me to come there - when at Morgan's he asked

parties but did not know who they were - we were to go to
