Newport about a from 2 to 3 months previous to my going to
Mr Woollett. I can't say the month I came to Mr
. I think it was about September 1839. -
I knew the Prisoner at the Bar after that time. I had -
been in the habit of seeing him about every night
and sitting in the same room with him. I can't say -
exactly how distant it is from Mr Clements door where
I was standing to the spot where the Prisoner was
standing when he fired, I am not a good judge
of Distances. I was standing at Mr Clements -
when the mob came down the Hill, when the -
mob turned towards the Westgate I walked with
them. Curiosity was my reason for walking -
along with them. I was like a great many others.
Certainly I was alarmed when the firing commenced - the Military fired from
the window when I was making my way off -
When I saw the Prisoner firing there was a great smoke.
Altho I was alarmed and saw a great smoke and
firing, I will undertake to swear that the Prisoner
was there and fired at the Window
. -
I took particular notice of the Prisoners face
because I knew him very well, I stared in
his face I did not take any particular notice
