Ad 14 deponit that hee this deponent together with his
Contest William Chuter seeing the said shipp the Saint Jacob
soe runne a shore and lying upon the hole as is predeposed and
fearing least as the tyde fell that shee might heele more
and more upon her side and soe bee quite oversett did
call out unto the company of the said ship the Saint Jacob and went
allsoe abord her tellin and sayeing unto them that theire said
ship was in danger of oversetting and that theire only way to
prevent her from harme and susteyneing any further
damage and ruine was to strike downe theire fore and
maine yards and to [?lowre] amd [?unparrall] their Top and
maintop masts and with theire said yards to undersett and
shore up theire said ship, but the fflemings as hee saith
refused to hearken unto or bee advised by them to doe as aforesaid
but on the Contrary suffered theire said ship to sinke downe quite
into the said hole and soe strained her seames and keele soe much
that teh Company of her thrust theire knives up to the heft
in and through the same. prmissa deponit ex proprijs uisa
et scientia se. Et alr nescit.
