Wall states that the men came to Mr. Buchanan s place on Tuesday night drunk and insisted upon his letting them into the hut - as they wanted to see Mossey. I told them Mossey was not in - but they said they would break open the door if I did not let them in - I opened the door and they came in with a quart pot in which they said they had some rum - when they told me they had spirits, I put them outside and shut the door - but they kept hammering at it until I was obliged to get up and let them in - I was alone and no men to protect the place or I should have gone and acquainted the farm constable - they told me Mossey had given them the spirits and there was no spirits drunk in the hut. I call upon William Mossey to prove the correctness of my statement....William Mossey being called states - I met three of Col. Dumaresq s servants on the road. I gave one of them, Kenny, a bottle rum which they drank in my presence. Kenny then asked me for another and said he would return it in kind. I gave it to him. I lent them a quart pot and I know nothing more and I went to Mr. Buchanan s next day about 12 o clock, but I saw no men there. He denies having been at Mr. Buchanan s previously drinking with Col. Dumaresq s servants.

Dumaresq s laying in the hut together with Wall and Henry Shoulder who was laying behind the door and Barret was laying outside, and I did not see Mossey until next day about 12 o clock when I engaged him to go along with Wall to Goulburn River to collect cattle.
