Boswell William Painter and most of the rest of the parties in this article mentioned amongst
others diverse parcells of Tobaccoes to bee transported in the said shippe
to this Port of London and heare to bee delyvered to the said parties or
their assignes, which hee knoweth hee this deponent being one of the said
shippes Companie and was Carpenter abord her from her goeing out upon
the said voyage untill her Returne againe and seeing the said Tobaccoe soe
laden abord the said ship as is predeposed. Et alr salvis infrascripts nescit deponit.

Ad 3um et 4um deponit et dicit that after such tyme as the said Tobaccoes were
