Regina v[ersus] Thomas Morgan

Henry Lewis of Tredegar States - That at
three o'Clock I went up to the
Colliers Row to the house where I used to resort and
when I got there the door was locked and the people
asked who was there I told them Henry upon which
they opened the door, the first thing I saw on
entering was a stick about five yards long and several
others of various sizes with an Iron Ferule in each Stick
I also saw a hammer lying on the floor - I asked them
what they did with that hammer Thomas Morgan said
to sharpen the point of this Iron in which he drew
the Iron from the fire and began to point it on the
paving and when finished put it in the longest of
the Sticks. I then asked him what they were going
to do with them he told me they were mops tails. I
replied they are very comical mops tails - oh he
answered they will answer the purpose for which
they are intended well enough I took three of them
to Cefngola last night and if I had met some one on
the Road I would have stuck one of them in him
and that is what we intend doing to night. John
was sitting by the window the whole time
his Brother in law was also in the house - William
, this took place in the house of W[illia]m Evans-
where they all resided. On Sunday the day the
Chartists rose William Evans was sitting by the door
inside he appeared very low hearted and never spoke
John Morgan said I don't know where we are going
they appeared to me to be pikes - indeed I have no
doubt but they were pikes I saw the same on men's
Shoulders as I saw in Evans house at eigght o'clock
by the Church of Tredegar going towards Sirhowy Bridge
