and five pounds now of him before this deponenth departed
from Gravesend outward bound upon the voyage in question and forty shillings
more of him of him about sixe weekes five and forty shillings more thereof
the sayd Pennyston paid by this deponents order to her this their deponents wife while
while hee this deponent was at sea upon the sayd voyage (as this deponent
was informed by his wife who since his coming home told him shee had
received the same according to his order, And saith there is about thirty pounds
still due to him which the sayd Penniston desyred this deponent to for leave
a while for that hee could not get in moneys for his freight of the sayd
shipp And to the rest of the Interrogatorie had answereth negatively

To the 2 Interrogatorie hee saith the shipp Interrogate was at the tymes
when shee tooke in the Tobaccoes both at Bermudas and Virginia
and at her coming thence an old shipp, but was then off this deponents knowledge
and sight (being Carpenter of her) a tight and strong shipp and saith
hee never knew or heare of any that refused to lade goods or adventured
their lives in her and this deponent well knoweth at her departure from
James River in Virginia the sayd shipp was tight and that there was then noe
cause for any to feare adventuring their life or goods in her And
further saving his foregoeing deponent hee cannot answere otherwise
than negatively./

To the 3 hee saith all shipps that goe to sea must expect stormes and
doe usually goe provided as well as they can for them, but saith the first storme
predeposed of was a hurricano which is usually soe violent that
few shipps are able to withstand them, and saith hee this deponent mended
the sayd shipps Rudder and therefore knoweth it was not rotten at such
tyme as it brake but sufficient against any ordinary storme, and
beleeveth if shee had bin a new shipp the violence of the sayd storme
was such that shee might have bin dammified as much
as shee was, and hee this deponent hath knowne a shipp now off of
the stocks receave more dammage by a lesse storme then the sayd
first storme was and therefore beleeveth the weather being soe tem=
pestious shee could not have brought her ladeing with lesse dammage
then shee did And saith there was a shipp called the Anne of London
and one other shipp whose name hee knoweth not which came from
Virginia in Company of the shipp the King of Poland but were parted
from her by the sayd first storme, and as hee hath since heard the sayd shipp
Anne did by force of the sayd storme take in above fower foote water
in hold but at length gott to Plymouth, but what
became of the other shipp hee hath not heard And further to this Interrogatorie
saving his foregoeing deposition hee cannot answere./

To the last hee saith what hee hath deposed before touching the cause of
the dammage to the sayd tobaccoes is the truth and that hee could not [?nor GUTTER]
would depose otherwise then truth for any respect what soever nor to [?gratifie GUTTER]
any person whatsoever and therefore careth not who is displeased [?therewith GUTTER]
