for light - I told them i could not give them any. I walked
with the two men to the full moon from my house - The full moon
is rather better than a quarter of a mile from my house - The full
moon was quite full of people - it was then about 12 o'Cclock -
I did not see any of them armed - I have known the Prisoner
Edward Pillinger many years - I saw him at the Full Moon
he has lost a leg and has a wooden leg - he was walking
across the Room - he was in company with others that were in the
House - I did not hear the men say where they were going to.
I spoke to the Prisoner - He tendered to me a pint to drink out
of which I supposed contained Beer - I said "No - what do you
want here Ned" - he turned away and made me no answer - I
stayed in the house till 3 o'Clock - I did not see the prisoner
going out - I think I left him there - there may have been two
or 300 in and out of the House while I was there. I did not see
any of them with weapons - I did not hear any one say in
the Prisoner's hearing where they were going - I do not remember
hearing any one speak to the prisoner while I was there -
Benjamin Strickland
