without giveing any notice to this deponent and sailed to Salley and
absented him self by the space of fifteene dayes or thereabouts, which he
deposeth for that hee was then left on shore att Tituan and for that
when the said Middleton had beene at Salley hee confessed so much saying
that hee had left George Batt in Salley which was the [?XXXXX] brother And
further hee cannot depose./

To the 6th hee saith and deposeth (and doth very well remember) that during
such time as the said Thomas Middleton was absent from Tituan with the
said shipp the weather was very faire and att no time so stormie
or tempestuous but that the said shipp might very well with safety have
continued in the streights, And that notwithstanding any weather that did
happen inthat time hee saith that (as hee remembreth) heee might within two days have returned
againe into the roade of Tituan in case hee had not gon to Salley
as aforesaid, An otherwise hee cannot depose. saveing the reasons that [?induce]
him this to depose hee saith are that to his best remembrance) there was
noe foule or stormy weather dureing the time of the said Middletons absense at least the day or two after his departure

To the 7th and 8th articles of the said allegation hee saith that the said [?merchants]
of Tituan seeing the said shipp so gone did neverthelesse continue their treaty
for the said Cargazon in expectation of the returne of the said shipp and
did propose Gould and silver [?hides] and wax for the payment for the same which might
have taken effect if the said shipp had not beene absent as aforesaid, But in
[?reXXXed] the said shipp was so long absent the said merchants of Tituan before the said shipp returned, sent away theire goods which they proferred in barter)
to S[?e]nta in Barbary belonging to the kinge of Spaine, and gave out that
the said shipp was run away and left the Merchant ashore to that effect
by meanes whereof the markett for the present was utterly lost
All which hee deposeth of his certaine knowledge And further knoweth not.

To the 9th hee saith that hides and waxe are very [XX]dible comodities in the parts
of Spaine or the medera Ilands and the same might have bin sold there
for a very greate and considerable profitt and advantage to the said Thomas
Batt in case the said Cargazon of Tobaccoes had beene exchanged, And saith
that the wax would have yeilded 30. 40. or 50 li per Cent[X] profitt, and the [XXXes]
would have bin a very good comoditie in the m[?e]dera Ilands to which place
hee was incouraged by the merchants there, to bring them, And further hee
cannot depose./

To the 10th hee saith that the said Thomas Middleton when hee was att
Salley did leave on shore a brother of the said Thomas Batts, and that
they did afterwards goe thither and fetch the said Batts brother off which hee
knoweth for that this deponent went in the said shipp from Tituan to Salley and
there found him, and brought him off [?with] them And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 11th hee saith that by reason of the losse of the markett att Tituan as
aforesaid, they were enforced and necessitated to seeke out many strange
places before they could sell of and barter theire Comodities, and ran through
many dangers and hazards which was the casuse that the voyage was length[?ne]d
five or six monthes longer (as hee conceiveth) than it might have beene, in case the treaty
with the merchants att Tituan had beene perfected, All which he knoweth for that
hee was ffactor as aforesaid for the said Batt and ffreighters And further hee
cannot deepose./

To the 12th hee saith that hee referreth himself to his foresaid depositions
and reasons of his knowledge aforesaid And further hee cannot depose,

To the last hee saith that his foregeoing depositions were and are true./
