water with a tilt did wonder and say
surely the wateren and company [?concerned]

in such tempestuous weather, And this
was and is true et cetera And hee alleadgeth joyntly

and further into the streame and some persons
that were upon the water seeing of h[?XXX GUTTER]
shee went out and observeing her [?worXX GUTTER
did conclude the watermen were noy able to
mannage her, and seeing the shipp the [?XXX GUTTER]
come downe with the tyde did say they [?were GUTTER]
very fearefull the boate foeing out as [?aforesaid GUTTER]
that it would bee scarse possible for the
shippe to passe by her without endangering
her, and presently after those whoe [?had GUTTER]
seene the said boate soe driven by the
wynde and storme and the shippe come in[?XX GUTTER]
downe did heare a crying out and lookeing [?and GUTTER
beholding the manner of the action did see and
observe the said shippe stay and lough
and doe all that was possible to bee [?done GUTTER]
by men for the preventing of any dammage
or hurt to the said boate or any of th[?ose GUTTER]
therein, And this was and is true et cetera, and
well observed and seene by such as were
upon the water and tooke notice of it at the
same tyme And hee alleadgeth as aforesaid.

3 Item That after the said shippe did lough and
stay the boate did lye under the side of the
shippe and divers of the company of the [?boate GUTTER]
did come out of the boate into the said shipp
and soe might all the company have done
and have beene safe or they might have
gone away with theire boate from the [?ships GUTTER]

themselves but those that were in the shipp
went downe into the boate againe and [?XXX GUTTER]

into her head and the said woman (that was
drowned) and some other of the company being
gott into her head turned her aside and the
shippe drawing the water shee was turned
over and soe the said woman drowned ecause
those in the shippe could not gett her from under
the tilt, but the said casualty and death of the
said woman did happen by the indiscretion
of the watermen goeing with a tilt in such
tempestuous weather and theire lying by the
said shippes side and goeing rashly into the
head of the boate and not by any default of the
shipp or any of her company, And this was
and is true et cetera And hee alleadgeth as aforesaid.

the said boate that was soe cast away wherein
the said woman was frowned had beene
drinkeing more than ordinary in and about
Wolwich and at the tyme when they mett
the said shippe, and before, they were takeing
of tobaccoe and were very negligent and
careless and minded little how or where they
went with the said boate, and soe much was
observed abd taken notice of by those that did
see them upon the river, And this was and
is true et cetera And hee alleadgeth as aforesaid.
