yards from me when he did that. and looking at him now indeed
I have no doubt that he is the Man.

Herbert Williams, Sworn, Says I am a Chemist and Druggist residing
in Commercial Street in the town of Newport about 200 yards from the
Westgate Inn
between 9 and 10 o'Clock on Monday morning the 4th. November
Inst. - I was standing near Mr Mullacks House about 50 yards from the
front of the Westgate Inn the first I saw was the Mob which came in
front of the Westgate from Stow Hill they came as far as the Gates
entering the Stable Yard, they retreated a few yards and then I heard
the firing commence - I saw in about five minutes after the Mob had
dispersed a Man with a wooden Leg, he had a Gun in his hand
I saw him immediately opposite the window of Mr Amblys house which
is the next door to the the Westgate Inn I did not see him do anything
with his Gun, I did not see him use the Gun in any way, I saw
him a second time in about 10 minutes, having lost sight of him
the first time When I saw him the first time there were 8 or 10
persons with him I saw one of the persons who were with him
load his Gun and firing at the Westgate window. When I saw
him a second time I was standing at my own House- he was then
passing down the Street from the Westgate from that direction he had then
a Gun in his hand - he was going very quietly - he had a light
colored dress similar to fustian that had been in use more than
a month I did not notice his dress very particularly, I noticed the
man more than the dress. I did not notice his hat. I have seen
him since. I saw him first since this morning - When I first saw him
this morning the only doubt I had about him his dress being different,
but on looking at the man I had not the slightest doubt about him
Looking at the Prisoner now I have not the slightest doubt that
he is the Man I have been speaking about and who I saw on the
4th. November last.

called upon for his defence voluntarily says - I am quite innocent of the
