told him I did not know where I could get him a horse - I
then left him in the bar and I did not see him afterwards
until I saw him here this morning - Some of the men had
pikes some had Guns some had Swords and some had Staffs they
left my house in the direction for Newport about 10 o'Clock on
Monday morning-After they left I missed a Cloak 4 Umbrellas and
a safeguard I have not discovered them since - After the light was

house but they were taken by some of the persons that he was
with I dont mean to say that he took them - I dont believe
