And further saith, that the very first night after this rebellion was knowne, generally all papists houses at <Novan> were sett upon a merry pin, danceing, singing, and drinkeing, as if hell had bin broken open among them; neither could this deponent perswade <C> the Portrife or Burgesses, to have a watch kept at the gates, or any care had to defend the Towne, though the country people were vp and robbing to the very walls of the Novan, Whereupon this deponent threatned the Portrife, that the state should know his care, and that he might perhaps repent his doeing. The which (this deponent beleeveth) was the cause that this deponent was shott at. And further he cannot depose.
