& then came back & said "its all gone" We then
went to bed (about 1/4 past 3) I had not been in
half an hour before I heard the door burst open
I then heard the Bar door burst open. I told my
wife to go down. She was afraid. I jumped out
of bed. They said here's someone coming mind the
guns. I heard the Clock strike 5. as they went
out. I should know one of them all.

On Monday about noon the Mob began to come
back. Many called at my house. My Servant
seemed very free with them I shook hands with
many of them. I made my remarks to my Wife
It was very strange she was so free with them.

On Monday night a person told me there was
a double barreled gun. he said he had. He asked
what sort was mine. I told him. he then gave me the Gun
he said he had it it was given it him by an old woman
near the Welch Oak who asked him to take it for fear some
body shod come back & shoot her with it.
