Newport 23 [r]d Decr 1839,

My Dear Sir
I wrote to you yesterday & to day forward you
copies of Dav Wm Davies's Evidence & James Hodges
I have at length succeeded in apprehending Job Tovey
which with whom Frost lodged previous to the outbreak
not with a view of prosec[uti]on but as Evidence ag[ain]st Frost & o[the]rs - He was taken near Coalpit heath in Glou[ceste]rshire on Sat[urda]y & will be bro[ugh] t here today - I have
just re[ceive]d inf[ormatio]n that meet[in]gs have been held within
the last few days for the purpose of making arrangements
to kidnap the known important Wit[nesse]s - & I have in
consequence det[termine]d to have down here all the doubtful
ones or persons whose evidence will be required by
Conveyances tomorrow or next day - Indeed until
we have secured them, & until & I am arranging to
take a respectable house, the Parrot [Inn] which belongs to
[Thos] Walker who was wounded for them & to place some
persons whom we can trust to remain with them
until the Assizes - I trust you will approve of this
