had then heard that the people lost the trial or what
I call the battle - the prisoner said nothing to the
women but waved his hand and galloped off -
By Mr. George Hall - my house is an opposition house
I never had a Chartist meeting in it -

William Harris Re-examined - I remember the Sunday
I spoke of before - It was about seven o'clock when I
went to the Coach & Horses - there were many people about
there - 50 or more - and horses - I saw Mr. John Frost
and William Davies the prisoner standing outside the
door of the Coach & Horses and heard William Davies say
"There is enough to eat Newport" - That is the same
I said yesterday - I stood by the Turnpike Gate
when he said that - I did not hear any one say anything else - I
went off home - I have a thought that Wm Davies said
"Go on and don't be afraid" I am quite sure - I was
there about 10 minutes - Frost and Davies were close
together while I stood there - I never was at the Welsh
Oak
before - I did not see anyone on horse back by
the Coach & Horses - I know Risca - between Risca
and the Welsh Oak I saw a man on horseback who
asked us why the Devil we did not come on faster
why did we hang back there - "there were five or six
of us coming along together - he also said that half
the Soldiers were gone to Abergavenny - the man on
horseback had a short cut coat on - there was a
halter on the horse and not a bridle - The man on
the horse also said "you are enough to eat Newport"
I saw John Frost at the Welsh Oak and heard him
say that all those who had pieces were to come
forward on the Turnpike Road - all who had Guns
