8 o'Clock the next morning which was monday the 4th
November there was a rumour in the place that those
men the Chartists were coming down It was then rumoured
they were in the Park Mr Morgan the prisoner came into
my house I took the usual Quantity of Milk of him I asked
him what he thought of the Chartists or what he thought of it
now I asked him that Question because I understood him
to be a Chartist he said it was enough for every man
to mind his own Business he said no more I did not
see him afterwards until I saw him in Bristol at the Bunch
