___________________at this place
as the Horses could not stand ^ without
holding as it was steep - they moved
on one side and I drove the chaise upon
the Tram Road on a flat where the
Horses could stand easy - I remained
upon the box until I was wet through -
______________backwards & forwards
I then got down and walked ^ about ten
yards from the Coach - I saw a great
crowd in front of the door of the Welsh
Oak
- It was very dark. I cannot say
whether there were any lights there - I
asked one of the men how long they intended
to keep me there - they said they did not
know themselves - I asked one of them for a
_____________a little
pipe of tobacco ^ Tobacco - which he gave
____ I had a pipe of my own in my pocket
me - ^ I lit my pipe from with a bit of paper
from his pipe - I did not go into the house
I had nothing to drink all night - I
should not know any of the men again -
I did not hear any thing said by any of the
men during the night - except that some of
them asked me where I was from and
where I had been and who had I taken
up to Tredegar all of which I told them
About dawn of day the mob left the Welsh
Oak
and I then proceeded on - I could
see then that they were armed with Guns
as well as pikes and other weapons -
