against this
Richard Benfield

The Prisoner John Rees being called upon for his defence
and duly cautioned says - I wish to make a statement - At eight
o'Clock they came to every one's house to make them go with them
and therefore he came - He was as much afraid to stay behind
them as he was to go with them - there was nothing in his
hand when he came to this place - nothing in the world - I
have nothing more to say _____ The mark X of John Rees
