with you, I then said no, - I do
mean to say that, I saw the Prisoner
Coles in my House with a Spear, or
a Pike, he held the spear before me
and said look at this, there was in
my House about 15 or 20 Persons, I
Can't say how many were about the
House - I saw some on the outside,
It was so very dark, I could not
know any of those outside, I know
a great many of them was armed
from what I saw and what I heard
that Night I believe my life was
in danger, If I had not gone
with them, It was a very wet
Night, I was never out in such a
Night in my life, it was as dark
as could be and very wet. -
