no use in rebelling without arms. One night, himself and a big crowd of others planned to capture the forge. At two o'clock that morning, they rushed down the hill, surrounded the forge and ordered the party that was in it to surrender.
They surrounded and gave up all their property, and amongst it were fifty pikes, ten flails and thirty-seven swords. With these weapons those men rose out in '98.
John himself used a flail and the English were terrified of that weapon, for one day a soldier on horse back was rushing on John, when suddenly John worked his flail and cut the legs clean off both horse and soldier.
