with us for a long time, since
we had fired at the men of the


son of the Chief Jaloesa, named 1816.
Tielha, as cue of them had been ~~

during the night in our sheep
kraal, but many Kafirs are at
present roaming about in that
district, at our neighbours
Labuscagne and on the farms
of Fourie and Gerrit Bezui-

In order to verify and swear to the evidence given this day
there apppeared,

Frans Rousseau, who, his above given evidence and answered
interrogatories having been clearly and plainly read to him,
declared that he adhered to them, but with this alteration, that he,
witness, could not rightly see whether the prisoner, J. J. Erasmus,
had come out of a separate hole, or out of the same in which
Bezaiienhout was, but that he came from the same rooky ledge.

After this, the witness still replied to the following questions of
the Court :

How many shots do you Answer. — That I cannot
surmise, have been fired by determine, but as soon as a
Bezuidenhout and his ? soldier came in sight he was

fired on.

The prisoners having declared that they had nothing to ask the
witness, he spoke, in confirmation of the truth of the same, the
solemn words,

" So truly help me God Almighty."

The Court declares the investigation in this to be closed, with
orders to the Prosecutor immediately to submit his claim, and to
conclude in such a manner as he may deem advisable.

The R. O, Prosecutor consequently said.

Worshipful Gentlemen.
Having heard the inquiry in this case, and what has been
adduced by the prisoners for their exculpation, the R. O. Pro-
secutor is of opinion that it has appeared to be very probable that
the prisoners were forced by Bezuidenhout, now shot dead, to
assist him in his opposition, and that they would have exposed
their lives to danger by withdrawing from him and surrendering
to the detachment after they had once joined him ; hence the
R. 0. Prosecutor is of opinion that though the first prisoner,
Jacob Jacobus Erasmus, should beforehand have separated himself
from Bezuidenhout, as he knew of his evil intentions, he, the
prisoner Erasmus had been sufficiently punished for his impru-
dence by his apprehension and imprisonment, and the more so, as
it has not appeared that he fired any shot, whereupon the R. O.


J816, Prosecutor declares that he would have no objection that he should
" be released from confinement, and relieved of all further judicial

prosecution in this case. But whereas the second prisoner, the
bastard Hottentot, Hans, according to his own confession, not-
withstanding he knew the intentions of the said Bezuidenhout,
assisted him by informing him of the arrival of the detachment, and
even seconded him with firing, the R. 0. Prosecutor cannot
consider his pretended fear of Bezuidenhout otlierwise than as only
preventing him (the Prosecutor) from making a much severer
claim, but by no means can he consider him altogether as innocent,
and therefore in consequence believes that he must conclude that
the second prisoner shall be condemned by sentence of Your
Honours, to be severely thrashed in the prison here, and after that
foe the period of three successive months to be confined, with
condemnation of him, the prisoner, in the costs.

The first prisoner has nothing to say.

The second prisoner says that he had only fired through fear of
his master, who threatened to shoot him if he did not do so, and
that he could not run away from him without incurring the danger
of being shot by him, and therefore requests that he may only be
punished at the pole, and not remain confined in the prison.

The court, after consideration of matters, in accordance with
Section 43 of the Proclamation, dated the 16th May, 1811,
reserves the decision of this case for the full court, with the further
-disposition that the prisoners in this case shall, in the mean-
while, be kept in the public prison at this Drostdy.
