quantitie of 130 kintalls of fish or thereabouts, and the same
did not make or containe above 6 tonnes and a halfe, and all
the rest of the said shipps lading of ffish hee saith was
as well and sufficiently stowed as it was possible to be, which
hee knoweth being one of the said shipps company the said voyage and
helping to stowe the same. alr nescit.

Ad 5 deponit that one of the beames betwixt the deckes of the said
shipp was soe rotten and insufficient that it was broken while
only the companies chests and bedds were thereupon, and before
any fish was stowed upon the same. Reddens raconem ut supra
alr nescit.

Ad 6 deponit that the arlate Wiltshire the voyage in question went
