To the 31th article hee saith that the monethly wages of the Master and
Mariners of the Peace and the victualls and provisions by them monthly
spent during the voyage in question did amount to a very considerable
some of money but what to value the same at hee knoweth

To the 32th article hee saith that at Nevis hee this deponent heard by the
report of severall of the Inhabitants there that the Governour of the
sayd Island and alsoe one Captaine Menton who was and is an
[?eminent] Planter there and is since come over into England would have
laded a very considerable quantitie of goods thence aboard the sayd shipp the
Peace but were deterred and hindered from soe doeing for that they
