of Tredegar Iron Works " I
know the prisoner his name is Evan Edwards he is
a watch & clock maker he lives in Tredegar down
by the church
. I remember seeing him on
___ Sunday
Monday the 3rd Novr. it was some time in the
morning - but I can`t tell exactly the time - it
was at my back door he came there he asked me
if I had got ever a pistol I told him I had not
only one that was out of repair he asked me please
to let him look at it I reached it him - he told
me he would repair it if I chose - I don`t know
if he is in the habit of repairing pistols - he never
repaired any for me I never heard of his repairing
any - I told him I did not think he could repair
it he told me he could repair it and would return
it to me on Monday morning the next day by 9 o`clock
he took away the pistol he did not return it I
have never seen it since - he asked me if I had
got any Bullet moulds, I told him I had only got
one a very large one and it was not the mould belonging
to that Pistol
- he asked me please to let me look
at it, I did let him look at it he asked me the
price of it - I told him that I did not know the price
of it,that my husband did not tell me the price
of anything of the kind - my husband is a
Wholesale Dealer he sometimes sells pistols - my husband
is a Wholesale Dealer in hardware which is Iron ware
& he sometimes sells Bullet moulds but have not had
any sometime, excepting that one - he took away the
Bullet mould I have not seen it since,
