voice was Prisoner's voice - I cannot recollect -
a word he said - He left the mountain
and went down to the Road - the Tram
- I saw Zephaniah Williams on the
Tram Road - I was about 200 yards from
Prisoner - When we came to the Tram Road
a man who was passing by said - "What do ^you
do with such a small body of men as these"
addressing Prisoner - Prisoner said "there was
no danger of losing any lives" - I went on with
them nearly a mile, and then then turned into a
a public House - the House was full of men -
saw some arms there - I don't know who keeps
the House - I don't know any of the men who
were there - I s remained in the House I should
think for more than two hours - Whilst I was in
the House they came and fetched me out again -
I don't know who they were - I went with them -
then I came to the Park - I saw a great many
people there - a thousand I should think - and
there were thousands coming on after me -
I no did not stop in the Park - I came on to
Newport - I came so far as the middle of Stow
- I then saw the men running back towards
me - I heard the firing - I ran down a steep
street on Stow Stow Hill and went back home -
I didn't see the Prisoner all the way along - not
after I left on the Tram Road near lower Ebbw
