& then shall no more harm to come to you than to me -
I still said "I won't go - With that they seized me
& hurried me out of the house without any Coat or Hat.
They took my Son of 15 years old also. I was obliged to go
with them as far as Crumlin Gate where I managed to
escape - Soon after I was taken out of the house some
one brought me my Coat & Hat.

____the 3rd Novr
Sunday I had heard that the people were going down to Newport
In the evening I heard the women crying & I went out to
see what was the matter - I went behind John Daniel's
which is near the Tram road & there saw a great
many Men ^ armed with Pikes - A They said "all the
womens that's here go to their Houses -" I ran back to
my own house & just saw then Wm Jones said to me
I had better lock the door & tell my husband to go to bed
I went in, locked the door & told my husband to hide
himself away somewhere - "Oh d they don't want me"
he says - The men came to the door & called "Walters"
We did not answer - they immediately burst open the
door & the bolt f was jerked into the middle of the
room - they came in & filled the room - they told my
husband several times to come with them but he
refused - One of them held a gun to his breast & said
"Is your life better than ours" - Wm John Llewillyn
