I then heard firing - firing commenced
about a second after I got in the back
way - I was constable when Vincent was
apprehended - there was a collection of
people in the street at that time . -
There was a disturbance between the
Constables and the people there - Mr Frost
that day spoke to the people - we asked
them peacably to go home
Cross-examined by Mr Serjt Ludlow
It might be 12 months before the 4th
Novr that I heard Frost give such
advice -
It was about 1/2 past 8 on the
morning of the 4th. I went to the Westgate
[*]I was applied to by Mr "Camden"
to act as a Constable (he is a master
Painter as the Magistrates were
there, I did not know that
the Magistrates were at the Westgate
until half past 8. At 7 o'C[lock]
I heard there was a body of men
coming down from the Hills.
Some of the shops were shut and
I inquired. I might have been
at the Westgate 5 minutes before
the mob came down I went
from my Employers House. I
knew the Soldiers were usually
stationed at the poor House. I
did not see any Soldiers there
nor knew there were any there
