come - The persons without did not try then to open the door,
only they was at the door, When his Wife said he should

that he would go into the woods, and then I cut my way
home, that is all I do know about it - When I went out I did
not see any one at all - I went direct home - I did call for
my Horse at William Elias the Publican that was all - I saw
there only William Elias and his Wife when I went in - In
going home I met a good many with Candles lighted in their
hands, that was about 8 o' Clock very near, the men I met
were not armed in any way - no one came to my House
that night - I have not known Israel Furmen long, I have

in my neighbourhood I have not seen him I dont know when until
the present time.
