By Walter Kavanagh, Esquire, one of his Majesty's Justices of peace for Carlow.

 The Examination of James Malone of Bauk in Carlow, Farmer, who being this Day duly Sworn on the Holy Evangelists deposeth and Sayth, that on Monday the sixteenth Day of March 1818 about the hour of eight of the Clock in the forenoon, Gerald Doyle of Bauk, a Farmer, came into the House of James Malone, and called James Malone's daughter (aged about fourteen years) for a key, which having procured, he entered by a door on the Gable, which opened to the upper or second loft or story of the house, and being aided and assisted by John Callahan of Bauk (servant of the said Gerald Doyle), Alexander Doyle, Senior, Alexander Doyle, Junior and John Murphy all of Ballyling, Carlow, Farmers, did then and there cut away the said loft, with Saws, Hatchets and other implements, and instantly after cutting down the remaining loft, which lofts they carried away on Carrs, drawn by Gerald Doyle's Horses together with said door, the frame of said door, and serveral collar braces which they tore by force from off the Rafters of said house - that James Malone has occupied and paid rent for the said house these twelve years past, the last gale of which he paid to said Gerald Doyle on the Sixth Day of March 1818 -

 James Malone further sayeth that he several times entreated the said Gerald Doyle to forbear from cutting down said lofts, the under one at least as they were his chief protection from the inclemency of the weather (the roof being in a ruinious state) which said Gerald Doyle refused to comply with, saying that he would make but one Day's Work of it, and further James Malone Sayth not ~~

Sworn before me this being 19th Day of March 1818 being first truly read to James Malone.
(signed) James, his X mark, Malone.
