To the seaventh hee sith that when hee came first aboard her as aforesaid
there was, wine, [?linnens], pepper, and other [??spicerie] hatts, [XXXX GUTTER]
and other goods aboard her, being of her outward cargo, and saith hee is
soe farr from beleeving that the said shipp came with the said goods from
holland, that it was commonly said shee came from Spaine, and soe hee
beleeveth, and saith the said outwards ladingbeing taken out and disposed of in the
said Indies, there were there taken into her Indico, hides, sassaperilla
and some few other things, And otherwise hee referreth himselfe to his former

To the eighth hee saith that when the said shipp under saile was
neere Lundy Iland this deponent descried two other shipps under saile
but what they were, or what colours they carried hee could not discerne
nor did they make after the Hope that hee could perceive. And further
hee cannot answer.

To the nineth hee saith that upon sight of the said two shipps, hee
saw the said John Lopez take papers written tearing them and then [?wrap] them up together
and throw them out
at a window or hole of his cabbin into the sea, but the contents hee cannot
speake of, not knowing as aforesaid to write or reade, and saith there
was none other then present but the said Juan lopez and this deponent
And further hee cannot answer.

To the tenth hee saith that both at Truxilla and honduras hee went
ashore to fetch wood and water aboard the said shipp, and staid
not longer than while the boate was therewith laded, and then retourned aboard,
And saith that the said John lopez was alsoe the Merchant (aswell as
Captaine) and both sold and bartered away the said outwards goods,
and bought and procured and laded the said homewards cargo. And
further saving as aforesaid hee cannot depose.

To the eleaventh hee saith hee was not at Trinidad with the Hope nor
saw her there, And otherwise as aforesaid hee cannot answer
saving negatively for his part.

To the twelveth hee saith hee was the first (as hee beleeveth) that gave
notice to English officers at Milford that the said shipp came from the Spanish
West Indies, and did it because the Spaniards aboard had beaten
and very evilly [?en]treated him aboard the said shipp the said voyage, and
saith hee threatened them to be quit with them therefore or to that effect
And further deposeth not.

To the last hee saith the Commissioners for prize goods have provided
him of lodging, and gave him now and then a shilling, to beare his charges,
which hee himselfe desyreth, and not otherwise nor gave him any clothes
nor hath hee received any from them, nor expecteth ought from them
or from any theough the shipp and lading become prize.
