Where one road goes toward Newport and the other towards Mr Nicholas'
house - the party then divided at that spot - I was not directed to go
either road but I took the road to Newport by the New Inn - I
dont know which road Aust took - I did not see him there - I
continued with the party until about eleven o'Clock - I then made my
escape into Newport - I was here a little time near the front of the
Westgate - I saw nothing and returned home - I was afterwards sent
into Newport by my Master during the same day - I saw Aust in
Newport in Pentonville on Mill Street near Mr Venn's shop - he said to
me then "you know that I was pressed" - I said no I did not, for he
was with them when I saw him - he said "then you know that I
was not a Leader" - I saw I did not know that he was a Leader &
I did not know that he was not - I did not see him leading - the prisoner
was on the Turnpike Road this side of Mr Gard's when he said about
the Russians - I don't know that the prisoner's Gun was loaded
