which this deponent knoweth for the reasons aforesayd, and hearing the
sayd confessed and acknowledged XXXXX made in the presence of this deponent
and others; and saith he heard not any thing to the contrary thereof from any
of them but heard some of them farther say that they did in tend, if
they had escaped the Harry Bonadventure, to seeke for Holland Men of
Warr to convoy them home. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the .6th. and .7th. he saith that the sayd shipp Saint Peter being much damnifyed
in her masts rigging and hull in the sayd fight Captaine Swanley returned
with her and his sayd shipp of Warr back againe to Messina being in the dominions of the King of Spaine and there
provided himselfe of 2 masts a shore one for the prize shipp and
another for the sayd shipp of warr she having likewise recyved hurt
in the sayd fight. Annd saith the sayd masts being so provided the
Officers of the sayd Towne or Citty of Messina by the authority of the
Governor and Juratts thereof hindred the sayd Captaine Swanley from bringing
the sayd masts aboard, but delayed and kept them a shoare notwithstanding
the sayd Captaine Swanley presented the sayd Governor and other officers of Messina with a Chest of Venice
Glasses of good valew upon his promise to supply him the sayd Captaine
Swanley with such necessaryes as he wanted. The premisses he knoweth
being att the premisses present and aboard the Harry Bonadventure att
Messina, and likewise being a shoare and seeing the sayd masts fitted
and made by Captaine Swanleys owne Carpenters. and otherwise cannot depose

To the 8th and 9th hee saith that the sayd Captaine Swanley att the tyme of
such his being att Messina with his sayd 2 shipps sent John Merrick the
master of the prize shipp and Lorenzo ?Mishaut a Spaniard the Corporall
of his owne shipp a shoare in Company of a Broker of Messina to buy and
provide necessaries for the sayd shipps. And saith the sayd Merick and
the sayd Corporall severall sayes were detayned and kept Prisoners att Messina
so that they returned not to the sayd shipps till they had bene a day or two
out att sea, And saith the sayd Captaine Swanley was forced to putt out to Sea
before he had sufficiently fitted his shipps aswell through the
abuses that were daily offered to him, as by the advertisement sent
to him from some English merchants in Messina whose letters this deponent
heard read, in which the sayd Merchants did advise the sayd Swanley
to take the first opportunity to dept, for that there was a consultation ?had
by the Governor and Juratts of Messina to wrest his sayd prize shipp
and her lading from him, and that for that purpose they had caused
it to be given out that he had landed some Quicksylver without notice
of the same given to the officers of the Towne and contrary to the rules
of that port, under ?role whereof and other pretences if the sayd Swanley
did not speadily avoyd the port they would arrest and in?filtrae the sayd
prize shipp and her lading. And more over saith that the sayd Captaine
Swanley did there hire a ?ffelonea with about 9 men in her to attend his
sayd shipps by the moneth to goe abroad to gaine intelligence, which
?ffelonia and her man the Governor of the sayd place, seized and deteyned
from him to his hreat preiudice and ?difference of this Commonwealth, which
This deponent knoweth being Master of the Harry Bonadventure and
present with her and the sayd prize shipp at Messina aforesayd. And otherwise
cannot depose.
