John Morgan (Sworn) I am a Grocer living in
this Town - I know the Prisoner John Partridge's person - I
I have known him many years very well - I recollect to have seen
him on the morning of Monday last about 8 O'clock at the end
of the Cross Keys Lane opposite Mrs Harry 's - I heard him
address a person that was with him - I was near enough distinctly
to hear what Partridge said to that person - That man's name
is Charles Evans - Partridge told Evans that he would meet
him in 25 minutes from that time at the Waterloo. The Waterloo
is at a short distance from the weighing machine in the same
It is near the Tram road leading from the Collieries
^ and the Ironworks
to this Town that is the direct road from the collieries
and the Hills to the Town of Newport - I did not see any parcel
with him - I am quite sure that which I have said is true
- I named it to Mr Jacob Nicholas Junr at the time - He
stood with me at the time
