went to a Desk in the Room upon Seeing which
I said "Do not touch anything there - It is

here" - My Wife gave me the key - I opened
the door and showed them into the Room
and said Her "there's no arms here and
nothing but my books and papers - touch

was a Walking Stick and a yard - Whilst
I was with them in the Parlour another
party of them went into the back kitchen
and took from thence a new Lanthorn and

took hold of me - I said I will not go -
someone outside said "He has no arms
