Rega vs Henry Frost

I know Henry Frost I saw
him Sunday Eve-ng about
__ or 9
7 8 ^ Oclock with a Great
Coat & foraging Cap pass me
at W Hawkins' (the present
Mayors door) I was induced
to follow him. When he went
into the Court leading to the
old Hope Chappel
(at Byrons)
He looked about as if
he was afraid of being
watched

Xd by Mr Geach
I have known Henry Frost for 12 Mos at least
I never had any conversation with him.
I am quite certain it was him I saw
with the foraging Cap. It was not the usual
Cap. I have been in the habit of seeing him.
He did not run away quite the reverse.
The Hope Chappel is on the road to the road to Risca
A person going by Hope Chapel would be going
round about to go to Risca.
I do not know whether going down Commercial
St.
to go to Risca is not the most public way
I believe Commercial St & the lane or road
