advised this examinate that the said 2[?9][?caske] of sugars were for his owne
proper accompt, and hee conceiveth that the [XXXXXing] of mentioning him and

hee did accordingly, and this deponent verily beleeveth the said bill
to be reall and firm, and to be signed by the said Captaine, who was
not only master of the shipp, but alsoe the merchant imployed by
the said John Bushell in the buying and lading of the said sugars.
And otherwise saving his foregoeing deposition hee cannot answ[?a]r or depose.

To the third and fourth hee saith that hee received noe Invoyce or factori[?a] for the
said [XXXX] of sugars, and otherwise hee cannot depose saving his
foregoeing deposition.

To the fifth hee saith that [XXX] only English men residinge in Portugall
but the people of any other nation there dwelling may ffreely trade
in Brazilia and this deponent when hee lived at Lisbone
did himselfe trade to Brazila, and since hee hath continually
traded there for theise seaven or eight yeares by his factors, Amd
otherwise hee cannot depose, saving as a foresaid.
