I know George Shell of Pontypool Cabinet maker
he worked for Mr. Platner a Cabinet maker at
Pontypool - He was a secretary to a Chartist Lodge
I have seen him at the Lodge - I have seen him
enter the names of persons in a Book - I have
also seen him making out an account of his
work - I know his handwriting - I have seen
a Letter addressed to Mr. Shell Bristol - I believe
that to be in the handwriting of George Shell - I
will not swear it is though I have no doubt in my
own mind - I have heard that George Shell went
with the mob to Newport and was killed at the
Westgate and that his body was one of the nine
dead bodies at the Westgate -
