ten o'clock and Slept at his house - Frost breakfasted and Dined
at his house on Sunday and he heard Frost say that he should
send a Company of Men to seize the Powder Magazine

and would send Men to Monmouth to release Vincent - During
Sunday a great many people came to his House to see Frost - One

his Men at 6 o'clock

not collect quite so soon - That they were to be at the Cefn at 10
o'clock and would be at Newport at 3 o'clock in the morning -
Dinner on Sunday Tovey's wife said to Frost it might be the last
time they might ever dine together and Frost said if ever he came
to the Blackwood again he should be then more content as he should
then have many of the Tyrant-s' and Oppressors Heads off
- She
then asked him what they would do for Food to which he answered
that there were Storehouses with plenty of Flour at Newport and
Deer in the Park and he would dare to say that there would
be some Butchers amongst them - Frost left Tovey's House Sunday
night accompanied by William Davis and Tovey went after them
to the Coach and Horses - He heard Frost order the Men who were
collected there in great number to go on
- at that time there were
a great number of Women and Children collected who made a
great wailing and crying - Tovey next saw Frost at the Welsh Oak
where he heard him give directions for the Pike Men to go in Front
- At the Waterloo he heard Frost give the word halt and then he
ordered the Men with Guns to take the Lead and so they went to
the Westgate, he saw Frost go with them to the Far Corner of the
House and then turn round and the Firing immediately commenced
