Mr Waters. I don't know any Mr
the Attorney; yes I do. I did

Mr Latches. I did not see Mr Frost
that morning; I might two or three

Chartist Lodge. The man held his
pike upright when the Special

of what had occurred on the
Chief Justice - You do not
intend to ask him as to the
whole transaction?
Solicitor General No merely
as to the particular fact. -
Sir Fr. Pollock still argued
