with they, and then I begged upon them for to go to my Father in Laws and
they told me as I should not as I was bound come along with they, and
they made me go then, I did come for fear of my life and I came down
all the way with them, and this here road that do turn from the Tram road
after we come on a little bit there, I could see the people a running back
and I asked them what was the matter and then they said as there had been
a firing here, the Soldiers on them, and all they went on and I came down and
I seed two men lying dead here they was shot, however they was lying down
before this house here, then I returned back then I went to come little lane that
is going across that way and I did meet the Policeman a coming towards here
and he passed me and I went on by him and I went to this here house, and the
same old woman said I asked a young man there was a man sitting in a
Chair on the right hand & then I asked him what was the matter with him and
then he told me as he was shot in his arm then I asked him how did he
find himself and he said he was very poorly, and that is all I have got to
tell you Yes the Policeman came in - the same as the old woman said the
old woman told the truth, the Policeman took a false oath I dont wish to
say anything more
