John Phillips - I am a Blacksmith - I live at
the Blaina - I was at home at my House
on Sunday the 3[r]d November last until
about 4 o'Clock in the Evening - I went
out on the Tram Road for a walk - when
I met a man named John Licklinton - He
asked me if I would I would go with him so far as
the Royal Oak - I asked him what for? -
He said the Chartist meeting was there -
and that there would be speeches there-
I said yes - and went with him - I went
into the kitchen sat down and called
for a pint of Beer - I remained in the
kitchen for about three quarters of
an hour - after I drank a pint of Beer
I went into the Lodge Room where the
Chartist meting was to take place - I
heard a man, I believe an Englishman, I
don't know his name - speaking - He
said that every one there were to meet at
____o'clock that Evening
6^ on the mountain between Pen y cae and
Nantyglo
- and that every one was to bring arms
with him - everything they could get and a
lump of bread and Cheese in his pocket -
that he didn't think they would be back for
a few days - and not to let their our wives
know /but little about it - and not to make
them uneasy - I saw Zephaniah Williams
there - He addressed the meeting in Welsh
in nearly the same words as the Englishman -
that every one were to take arms to the meeting -
that they were not be afraid - as they would
have every thing in their own hands -
