all the way with them, and this here road that do turn from the Tram road

and I asked them what was the matter and then they said as there had been
a firing here, the Soldiers on them, and all they went on and I came down and
I seed two men lying dead here they was shot, however they was lying down
before this house here, then I returned back then I went to come little lane that
is going across that way and I did meet the Policeman a coming towards here
and he passed me and I went on by him and I went to this here house, and the

say anything more
