Transcript: because he was away from his place of business a short time before the gang were exterminated and captured, I made myself acquainted with relatives, sympathisers and friends of the outlaws, and found that they either did not know or would not disclose who was the guilty person or persons who manufactured the coats of iron for outlaws.
