before the right Worshipfull William Clarke doctor of
Lawes, one of the Judges of the high Court of
the Admiraltia and examined upon certaine Interrogatories
ministred on the behalfe of the said John Wright
saith and deposeth as followeth videlicet.

To the first Interrogatorie hee saith and deposeth that hee well knew
the shipp the Peter Interrogated at the time of her last being in
Norway in the parts beyond the seas, and saith shee was last at
Longsound in Norway and came thence about five weekes since, which
hee knoweth being Carpenter of her and comming thence in her.

To the second Interrogatorie hee saith and deposeth that the said shipp
was bound from Longsound for London, and comming from Longsound
prosecuted her direct course for London whither shee intended to come,
her lading being consigned for this port, And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the third hee deposeth that the said shipp in her course of proceeding
for this port of London, was met, fought with, surprized and taken by a man of warr
pretending to have a Commissiomn from the kinge of Scotts, together
with her whole lading and by him carried into Gravala[?igne], where her
company were dispossessed of her and turned ashore, and her lading taken
out and landed by the said man of warrs company, and by them disposed
of, soe that the same was and is utterly lost to the said John Wright
all which hee knoweth to be true because hee was on board the said shipp
the Peter when shee was soe seized, (which was about a moneth since,
off Alfernesse on the coast of England) and was carried to Graveling
in her, where hee sawe the said goods and lading taken out as aforesaid,
saving a quantitie of deales and masts that were lost and cast away with
her, the said shipp comming there aground and being by that meanes splitt
in peaces, that shee perished of his sight and knowledge.

To the last hee cannot depose saving as aforesaid.
