and saith that whatsoever dammage or leakage hath befallen any of
the said wines, happened merely by the said storme, and not by any defect in
the shipp (which was otherwise very staunch and tight), nor by any neglect of the
master or any of the mariners, who all did their utmost for the preservation
of the said wines, as hee saith it more than ordinarily concerned them, their
owne lives being at stake. And otherwise cannot depose, referring
himselfe for the freight to the Charter partie made betweene the parties

To the nineth hee saith that after the said shipps arivall in this port and
before any deliverie of any of the said wines, the said shipp and storage of
the wines were viewed by two experienced and honest masters of shipps
who declared that they found the caskes to be well stored (as in truth this
deponent saith they were) and that the dammage happened to the wines
must needs have bin occasioned by fowle and stressie weather and not otherwise.

To the tenth and 11th hee cannot depose.
