but little against Davies. Have you asked John Morgan (wounded)
any question I think he may give you evidence against Frost
while in Front of the Westgate. I believe he was by him when
he gave the word Fire. We have no evidence against him
from here. I think I shall be able to show Jones the Watchmaker
coming through this place towards Blackwood on Sunday on Horseback.
