in question and for which wages in this cause by the producents
demanded And saith, that the arlate Thomas Johns
Master of the said shippe might if hee had soe thought goods (as
this deponent verily beleeveth) have come away from Alexandria
arlate with his said shipp assoone as other Merchants and Masters
of shipps (then allsoe there) did. And saith that tilla fter the
12th day of June in Anno domini 1648. there was noe stoppe
or imbargoe made or published of any ships then
remayneing there, But severall ffrench Merchants after
they had paid and discharged a certaine tax or imposition
which was laid upon all Christian shipps then att Alexandria,
upon a tradeing and merchandizeing imployment for Christian Merchants
there (which was and did amount unto 500 Dollers for and upon
every such shippe (as this deponent was there informed) did

have parid the said tax (as other Merchants there did, and
as hee himselfe or his merchants did likewise afterwards) hee might have
bin cleered and dispatched with his said shippe as they were
the said shipp the Concord being as hee saith then laden and in
as much readines to come away as the said ffrench Merchants or Master

6th of May and before the 29th of the said Moneth arlate
there were allsoe two saile more of ffrench vessells then
allsoe att Alexandria arlate (which [?goeing] paid the said tax
or imposition soe laid upon them by the Turks as
aforesaid) were likewise cleered and did sett saile
and depart thence with theire ladeing towards theire severall
Ports; And soe much this deponent saith hee is confident
the arlate Mr Johns might have done if hee would but
have endeavoured and taken the same course that the
said ffrench Masters and Merchants did, hee being as aforesaid
ready to sett sayle att the same tyme that
they did, The premisses he deposeth hee
thisd eponent being att Alexandria the tyme arlate And
seeing the said ffrench ships cleered, and set saile after
theire composition for and payment of the said imposition
as is arlate and well knoweing that the said ship the
Concord had receaved in her full ladeing and was ready
to depart (if her Master would) as soone as the said ffrench
shipps did Et aliter nescit deponere
