John Davies of Rhiw Sir David Monythusloyne Collier was says
In the early part of summer of 1839. I joined the
Chartist Lodge held at the Coach & Horses - & paid 6d
I only attended once - I never attended any other Chartist
Lodge until Saturday night the 2nd November when
I went to the May Pole with Herbert Davies & Watkin
to see what was going on - I have heard
their evidence read over & can speak to the whole
of it except that I did not see W[illia]mJones's pistol
owing to their being between me & him - I saw
him apparently put his hand into his pocket
at the time - Davies & Moses told me of the
pistol immediately Jones went out -
