To the first article hee saith that in the moneth of June 1658 arlate, and
long before, and ever since the arlate Mr John Caseby, hath and
doth drive a greate trade upon his owne accompt from this
Port of London to the Canaryes, for wines and other goods
and for that Purpose. had and hath a ffactor there, And saith
that for theise seaven yeeres last the said Mr John Caseby, hath
sent from the Canaryes, and receaved from the Canaryes, yeerely
one yeere with another, betweene two or three hundred
Pipes of Canarye wines, besides severall other goods. and
Merchandizes. Which hee Deposeth having lived with the said
Mr Caseby for about Eight yeeres last, namely about five
yeeres at the Canaryes, and about three yeeres in this City
And further hee cannot depose./.

To the second hee saith that for the reasons aforesaid hee
well knoweth that the arlate Don Christoval da Alvarado
hath bin. for about three yeeres last, and at present is the
ffactor or Correspondent of and for the said John Caseby, and soe
Commonly accounted, and further hee cannot DEpose/.

To the 3d hee saith that ever since the said Mr Caseby came
from the Canaryes which was about three yeeres since as aforesayd
hee hath and doth trade at the Canary Islands, under
the ffictitious , and fained name of Peter vander Rubin
and under that name hee did and doth Correspond with
the said Don Christovall da Alvarado, and saith that all the
Letters which the said Mr Caseby sends to the said Alvarado upon
his owne accompt and busines the said Mr Caseby or this
deponent for him, doth subscribe the same, of this deponents sight and
Knowledge, with the name Peter vander Rubin, And likewise
when the said Alvarado sends letters hether to the said Producent
hee directs them, to Peter vander Rubin
when as they doe really belong to the said Producent; and
saith that all the bills of lading which are made for the wines and goods which the said Don Alvarado
sends from the canaryes to this City to the said Producent and for the
said Producents owne account, are made in the name of Peter
Vander Rubin, and mentioned therein to be for the account
and use of Peter Vander Rubin of Amsterdam. when, in truth
the Goods mentioned in the said Bills are really for the said ?use of the
Mr Caseby, and solely belonging to him, And saith that the
cause and reason why, the said Producent, tradeth at the Canaryes
under the said ffictitious name is for that it is very dangerous
for the said Producent, or any other subject of the Commonwealth
of England to trade at the Canaryes or any other Port of Spaine
