I don't know that after at the Special Commission several
persons were discharged who had been charged for
taking Arms from Houses and for firing at the
Westgate. I do not know the parties by whom -
this Charge is brought forwards. I don't know
whether this is a Government prosecution or not.
Looking at the Prisoner[']s person I have no doubt
whatever that he is the person I saw in my -
Kitchen armed with a Gun at the time I
have mentioned - It may be 14 years since the -
Prisoner worked for Messrs Prothero & Powell, my belief
is that it is not 14 years since - it is more than
Eight years since, because I have not been living
in the Town within that period
Taken before me
Thos Hawkins John Lewis
