Thomas Dyer being sworn states - I have lately
resided with Mr Phelps of Stow Hill as his Butler - I was at
Mr Phelps 's house the whole of Monday morning last - I slept
in the house on Sunday night in consequence of some rumours
I heard I was up the greater part of Sunday night and was on the
look out Monday morning expecting some extraordinary event -
I saw about 9 o'Clock an immense body of men coming down
I should say between four and five thousand, at least four thousand
The front part appeared in Military order - they marched in lines -
they were all armed - I saw a person in the crowd that I knew
I know the prisoner John Lovell I saw him marching with the
mob - he had a single barrel Gun in his hand he saw me - he
called me by name and said come with us - I was in the house and
did not go - I remained at home - About ten minutes after that I
heard firing - it is four or five hundred yards from the Six Bells to
Mr Phelps 's house where I was - I knew Lovell - I remarked
a person with the mob whom I afterwards saw dead in the Westgate
it is from nine hundred yards to one thousand yards from Mr
Phelps 's house
to the Westgate Inn - The mob which I saw passing
Mr Phelps's house was coming in a straight direction to the Westgate
