Frost would arrive at Newport from
Blackwood with a great number
of men - armed - He also said
that we should see placards posted
about Newport on the Monday morning
announcing whatever might be
deemed requisite - It should begin
with "We the Executive Government
of England" and be signed "John
Frost
President" - Some of
the people present complained that
they had no arms - He told them
not to mind it as there would be
plenty on the Race Course in the
evening for all - He said he
was expecting Jordan the Constable
there every minute - but that if
he came he would only get a ball
through his head at the same
house
I saw a Pistol in Jones'
hand whilst I was in the Room -
Jones said when they had were collected
the together they were to take Mr
Roberts (Sup[erinten]d of Police) and Jordan
[Policeman] - then go to the Ironmonger's
shops
and take arms from them
