in - I did not say I had seen you make the
marks upon the Table - but it was you that told me
you had done - there were half a dozen in the house
I dare say - I cannot tell whether you were sober
I did not hear you say you were a chartist or

John Trew of the parish of Aberystruth in
the County of Monmouth
States - I know John
he is a Blacksmith and works in the parish
aforesaid - I recollect Thursday the 31st Octr 1839
I went into his Shop and saw him at work he
was making some curious kind of Iron Instruments
I asked him what they were he said they were
teeth for a harrow - I said they were curious kind
of harrow teeth and that I never saw such before
he said the reason they were made that way was in
consequence of the wood being rotten - that Witness
had an Instrument made by his direction which he
has marked and which as near as he can recollect
resembles those which he saw John Owen making
on Thursday the 31st of Octr last and which John
said were teeth for harrows. call
