Hills We proceeded a good bit on that lane, until we met a Collier
the Prisoner Jones had a conversation with that Collier, I heard the
conversation - I heard the Collier say to Jones - if you had been where I
have you, you would not wish to go further, then Jones said "We are
done" Jones then asked the Collier to go toward Newport again the Collier
said no - I shortly after that made my escape into a field, and I saw no
more of Jones I live just by the lower Cross-y-Cylog it is about 10
yards below the house kept by Mrs. Glasebrook, there were a great
many above a hundred, pressed me, behind and before I saw the
Prisoner directly after I was taken, it was about 20 or 30 yards -

Pistol - I know nothing about the reason why the Pistol would
not go off - I saw him change the Pistol afterwards, I then went
on before him, I was sometime before him, and some time behind
him - I am quite sure I was sometimes before him, and sometimes
behind him - I never saw him from the time I saw him near
my House until I saw him again at Malpas, I know I am
on my oath - I gave evidence the day before yesterday before these
Magistrates against a person of the name of Aust that man has a
house and Garden at or near Malpas adjoining the Turnpike
