No I was not working for Mr. Williams at the time. For whom were you working? I was working in the country, at Sandwich. Did you get paid as though you had gone to work? No. Did nobody give you the price of your day's work? Yes. Who? I believe it was Mr. Davey. Mr. Washington Davey? Yes.

Did you get money in 1879? I was engaged as a messenger six days. I received 5s. a day; that was all I received. Which side? The Conservatives. Six days at 5s a day? Yes. Did you get anything else from anybody? Nothing. Not in 1879? Nothing. Who paid you the money you received as messenger? Mr. Bing. Mr. Bing the collector? He is the agent for the association.
