This the defendant refused to do, and used abusive and foul language to the old man. He also knock him down, and struck him when down. He was knocked into the fire place, and very much cut about the ear, blood flowing from sides of the head. He endevoured to get up, when the defendant and another son, named William, pulled him by the legs upstairs, and tried to put him to bed.

There were a number of peaple standing there, but none of them would go near. Witness then went near, and heard the old man groaning. A son came to the door, but witness could not sat that it was the defendant. Witness asked what was the matter, and the son replied there was nothing - the old man was only drunk.
A Man named Ratuaden said he saw the two sons of complainant dragging the old man away from the window at the time the shouts of Murder were heard.
Defendant was one of those he saw at the window.

She went into her son's bedroom for protection, he complained then said that if the door was not opened he would break it open which he did . The son then went forward to him , and the two then went into another room. Complainant fell on a fender in that room, and cut his head. He then went outside and threw some dross at the window breaking some squares of glass. He went away to his sisters, and came back next morning, and went down to the cellar for some bread and meat. He had a knife and fork in his hands which were taken from him , as he was using threats, The sons took him upstairs and put him to bed , and he then rose and cried Murder.
