came to Prisoner Austs house Jones the Watchmaker went into
the Prisoners house and came out with the Prisoner - the Prisoner
had then a great Coat on and was differently dressed to what he
has on - I did not see him at any time with any Gun -
when they came opposite Malpass house - I saw Jones and

were sometimes together and sometimes separated when we

had Clubs almost - I saw Aust by the Turnpike side and side
