Sworn) Frost lives in High Street in the Town of Newport he has
a garden at the back of his house I understand there is a
communication from Frost's house to Pentonville. Frost's house is

at Pentonville - By the front it is about 5 or 600 yards - It

which a Criminal information was moved for and a rule Nisi
obtained against John Frost last Trinity Term
