with them, I told as I would be killed
at home before I did come down - I did

wuld be afraid if there was a good lot
coming down - He did say as much
as this about the Soldiers, as he did
think there would be no mis-chief
done, as he did think the Soldiers would
every one give up their Arms, I did then
get in a very bad passion, and I did
say I would not go with them a yard
as I would sooner be killed at Home
than going - I then went out of the Room
