They were thinking to come on whether the
men at the Blaina joined to them or not
I did not understand that they expected
other men to meet them except the
men at the Blaina I heard nothing
about any men from Pontypool
[join]ing Frost had on a dark great coat
& a cap He talked English
to persons who came with us from Hy Charles
[*] Morris told us he was Jno Frosts
son he told us that his father was with the
men at Harry Charles's I think Frost's
son also said the same

heard no shouting & saw no lights. I saw
about 10 men a little this side of the High

men we passed. Several came

us at the fields. I will not [?] be sworn
that I do not know who the men were
who went through the fields
