Statement of Mrs. T.E. Brady
Wife of Terence Brady
Made at Danbury, Conn.
Monday Jan 26, ‘91
I am the wife of Terence E. Brady and live at sixty-four Grand Street. All that I can say is I first saw the man spoken of on Thursday night before the attempt. I was walking home with my boy at about eight-thirty p.m. He was sitting on the top rail of “Town Pound”. I did not wish to pass him, and I turned back and met my husband, and walked back up with him. I told my husband about the man and he said he thought the man was waiting for some girl. I saw the man on the following Friday and Monday when I was returning home from the store. From the way he sat I thought he was tall, just how tall I could not say, he had on a long dark coat. I could tell that he was a white man, wore what I took to be a round cap. He might have had a beard for all I could see as he held his hands up to his face. I cannot tell how old he was, but should judge him to be about middle-aged.
We always stay up ‘till about eleven-thirty p.m. and keep a light burning in our front room all night. heard [page break]

no disturbance on Monday night. I have not seen the man since. Learned of the attempt from my husband on the next day. I do not know this man you call James McNab.
