because I was in such a fright, when they came to the door - there
was a man, said, there is a man here we will have him to go along
with us - he shall not stop here to make fun at our Wives that we are
all gone and he here - and they called Walters, Walters several times
then they said if you don't open the door - we will break open the door
I did not open the Door - There were some men that gave orders for
breaking the Door, before it was broke outside - they did open the Door
