Books were left when I ceased being
Secretary which was in the first week
in June 1839. I never saw the Prisoner
out of Newport but on one occasion
when he and I went to Crosspenmain [Croespenmaen]
to attend a Chartist meeting - I went
to report the Proceedings for the
Silurian Newport Newspaper, He
went to obtain signatures to a
Petition which was called a -
Chartist Petition. The Prisoner has
collected money for the purposes
of the Association. There were -
between 5 & 600 members of the
Association at Newport at one
time, each member had a Card -
the number of each member on
his Card & a corresponding member
entered in a Book - each member
was expected to subscribe a
penny a week - The Association
