Blackwood Decr 3 . 1839.

My Dear Sir,

Reg: pros. Wm Davies

I have been much Engaged both yesterday
and to day in the Examination of parties here
whom I was led to believe could give
important Evidence against this prisoner, but the
process I have met with is not so flattering
as I could wish - I have, no doubt, examined
nearly 20 witnesses, but they all most stoutly
deny that Davies was at the Coach and
Horses Inn
on the Sunday evening or went
any Distance with the Mob - with the
Exception of the witness Wm Harris, whose
Evidence appears to be highly important
and was wrung out of him with much difficulty
I packed him off last night with Scard &
as he is rather a bad Character himself
and a slippery fellow, he ought not to
be allowed to return here until after
the Assizes - I enclose you his Depositions
The strongest, and most anxious Desire
of suppressing the truth prevails amongst
all parties here - and many from fear -
