there & to have some beer - The house was very full -
Zephaniah Williams was talking to the men there in
another room than that in which we were - I could
not heard what he said - I saw him go up stairs
& come down again in a few minutes - he had
changed his Clothes - Some few minutes after he
had come down stairs - he went into a little room
which was empty - I soon afterwards followed
him to ascertain what I owed him & to pay him -
... I spoke to him but he did not appear to take

20 or 30 cartridges on the Table which he seemed
to be rolling up in a paper - I went out immediately
