Sydney New South Wales

     I George Sutter Free Settler at Baulkham Hills, being in Sydney on the 26th Jany 1808, and seeing the greater part of the New South Wales Corps under Arms with fixed Bayonets marching down from the Barracks, I hastened among others to know the cause, and was informed that they were going to arrest the Governor and on proceeding a short way with them I distinctly heard Sergeant Major Whittle make use of these expressions. "Men I hope you will do your duty and dont spare them".  The Men replied "never fear us," and some person from the opposite side cried out "Hush, Hush."  I think it was John McArthur Esq.r as he was then on the opposite side. The Sergeant Major Whittle also said "Children get out of the way, for some of you I expect will be killed."
