front the Prisoner was about ten Men distant from Frost.
The Mob halted in the Park, they were coming in the direction
of Newport, some said they were going to pull the Workhouse
down, some said they were going to take Newport and I
can't tell what they were going to do, it was then broad
day light, it was after Breakfast time, I am perfectly
sure the Prisoner at the Bar was one of the person I
saw in the Park. I did not see him afterwards, I left
the Mob standing in the Park and I went into Mr. Williams
the Machine.

The Prisoner Benjamin Richards being duly
[blank] cautioned
voluntarily states. I went from the house Sunday
night about 7 o'clock it was . I did meet with some people
Sir upon the road and they did press me to come along with
them Sir and I told them I had nothing to come along
with them in my hands and they did tell me to go and have
something out of the House. I did take the handle
of the Sweeping Brush and off we started up to Sirhowy
Sir, and I met Mr. John Cullimore up by the Church Sir
and indeed Sir, I can't say what words he told me, and on
we went to Sirhowy Bridge and there we met a lot of them
coming down from Dukes Town. I tried to make escape there
to run away but I could not and we went over towards
Pen-y-Cae and down the Tram Road, thro' Crumlin
and thro' Cwm Abbergwiddon and to some Public House
