_____That on Sunday Morning the 4th Novr last I
was standing at the door of Mr Hopkins House
which is situated between Stow Hill and the
, and saw the Mob advancing down to
the Westgate in ranks some armed with guns
but the greater part with Pikes. I remained
at Mr Hopkins door until the firing was
over at the Westgate and saw the Mob retreating
up Stow Hill. I saw many of them drop
their weapons in the road. I picked up
several in different parts of the Town. I

they appear to me to be of the same
description and similar to those now
