in the Park. I asked him what he had done with the
Cleaver - he said Oh! damn it I dont know - I came
along with them about 50 yards below Stow Hill Church
I tried to run away several times but I could not - the people
hindered me many times - the people that came down thro'
the Park went up to Stow Hill - I dont know Zephaniah
- I heard his name mentioned several times
that night - I dont know John Frost I heard he was
there - his name was ment-d several times - I dont know
Jones the Watchmaker - When we came down to Stow Church
I hurried back and across the fields towards home as fast
as I could - I have not seen the Prisoner since I saw
him in the Park until today - Sunday night was a very
wet and dark night - the following morning was very
fine - It rained till about 2 o'Clock in the morning -
The Cleaver was a bright one
