as prisoners and soe they remained till the said rescue.

To the third hee conceiveth that the said man of warr that first tooke
them was in hostilitie against this Commonwealth, because hee heard
the company thereof soe declare themselves hee being taken into the said man of
warr prisoner, but hee likewise heard them declare themselves
friends to this deponent and his owners, telling this deponent that they
pretended nothing to this deponents said shipp, but meerly to the
coales because they came from Newcastle; And saith that the
said man of warr or pirate tooke this deponent and his said shipp
about nine of the clock in the forenoone, and the said Captaine
Clarke retooke her about twelve or one of the clock next following,
soe that the said pirate had them in his possession only three
or foure houres or thereabouts,
and assoone as hee had taken them hee was
carrying them directly for Jersey and shaped his course accordingly,
but Captaine Clarke (as it seemed) lying in the Roade of
haver da Grace and seeing him take them, made saile after him
and soe in three or foure houres space rescued them as aforesaid,
And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the last hee saith there were noe bills, cockets or charter partie nor
letters aboard nor any torne or concealed.
