something in his hand when I saw him there but whether
a Sword or what it was I cannot say He was along
with the rest of the Commanders in the front I left the Mob
in the park when they halted right abreast opposite the place
where the Old Works used to be - I took the footpath towards Mr
Williams
of the Machine I saw Mr Williams he lives at the park
Gate
at the Machine I went into the House and spoke to him I
told Mr Williams I was very hungry and he gave me a Cup of
Beer and a bit of Bread and Cheese and he looked out by
the Window and he saw them coming on by the Ladies Well
he asked me "Furmen are You with them" I said I was
forced to come with them he said Gods sake run away out of
my house dont let any one see you or know that you have
been here - I went out and went on the tram road - I came
down and saw the mob again and Mr Frost halted them
by the Turnpike Gate at the Waterloo I was then coming
from William's for Newport in front of them all I knew
where the Waterloo Inn is it is this side the park machine
I saw the mob, halt by the Waterloo just by the Turnpike Gate
I saw the prisoner with them then I heard all the word of
command and Orders given there Mr Frost was one - I
then heard the prisoner cry out "All you with Muskets
come forward in Front and the Pike men next and You
as got clubs and bludgeons stop in the Rear
- I then
said to several of them Gentleman let me pass you if
you please - I want some Beer to drink - I ran into the
Waterloo Public House
- the Waterloo is by the Turnpike
Gate
it is more than A mile from Newport - the mob
then Marched on towards Newport to the best of my
knowledge It was between 9 & 10 o'Clock it was after
Breakfast time I kept on behind them I came with
them as far as Stow Hill - I was not with them here
because I went down Charles Street When I went
down Charles Street I went to Thomas Habuccuck
who was a former Land lord of mine before I was with
Mr Perkins , he lives in Monkey's Row I stopped there
