I now hold in my hand another Card I found in the same
house - I have read this Card - it is thus - "Monmouthshire
"shocking men's Association - motto - peace law and order - equal
"Laws and Equal rights we advocate and claim as our
"inalienable birth right - and as Citizens Universal suffrage

"are the only qualifications we advocate for the Electors

I afterwards found in the same house two flasks of powder
and a quantity of Caps - I think it was half a pound of powder
