Cook in Newport, I am not a Special Constable. I
remember Monday the 4th,, November. The Rioters came
down, I mean the Chartists as they are called, I saw

at Mr,,Clements Corner by the lamp post, I could see
up Stow Hill, a good way up, as far as Charles Street
I saw a large body of men Coming down Stow Hill,
Some with Pikes on their Shoulders, and some with
Guns, they were in front, they were coming down
