the Company to persevere in endeavouring to obtain the Charter
& he had no doubt they should have it - Another man then
got up whom I do not know - he read an account of the
monies received and the monies paid & exhorted the
members to pay up their money - He then said "I would
tell you all the truth - me & my brother Auditor made
out those accounts on Sunday last for we have no other
time to do it - A Vote of thanks was given to Mr Frost for
his manly conduct & exertions as a Delegate from the
Convention which was done with a great noise -
I stopt there until the meeting was nearly over - When I
went out Etheridge was still sitting at the door - Before
I went up I heard something somebody say Etheridge was
Secretary and Treasurer - I heard more than one say so
but I cannot remember who they were - This was the
only Chartist meeting I ever attended - I have known Etheridge -
for four years -
