in cloth and sutes of clothes, and was to paie about 30 s freight for the said goods
being contained in one chest, amountinge in bulke not to above halfe a tonne
which freight hee is to allowe upon accompt to the freighters or imployers of
the said shipp, and hee this examinate brought home for his owne accompt
proper 2[??1] hogsheads of tobacco, for which hee is to pay freight 25 li after
5 li per tonne to the said freighters. And saith that the interrogated LLewellin,
Ba[?man] and Mackerell carried or sent out goods in wines, cloth, linnen
and woollen, haberdasarie, [?groceria]. Ironware and other goods to the valew
of 500 li sterling or thereabouts for their owne accompt, and had brought
home the said voyage for their accompt betwixt 120 and 130 hogsheads
of tobaccoe. Besides his this deponents father Abraham Sheares
had in the said shipp out ward bound for his accompt 400 li pounds worth
of godds in such like commodities as aforesaid as linnen and other
English goods, and had f[?ourtie] hogsheads of tobaccoe amounting to
tenn tonns, brought home in the said shipp, And otherwise referring
himselfe to his foregeoing deposition made to the allegation in this cause hee cannot
answer. saving there were severall other goods carried in the said shipp
both outwards and homewards for severall other persons, the names
whereof hee remembreth not.

To the second hee saith that hee sawe all such goods as were carried
out and brought home in the said shipp for the accompt of the said LLewellin,
Ba[?man] and Mackerell opened and viewed the same at the time of the
unlading thereof, in the presence of diverse of the shipps
company as the cooper, and others, and saith there was not any of the
tobaccoes brought home d[?rie] trotten that hee knoweth of, saving about
foure or five hogsheads of this deponents owne tobaccoes soe brought home
were drie rotten, and hee beleeveth there were ohers of other m[?a]ns
alsoe drie rotten, and hee beleevet there were others of other mans
alsoe drie rotten, but hee doth not remember that hee hath said or
told the same to any before this present.

To the third hee saith that the said Llewellin, Baman and Mackerell
victualled and manned the said shipp [XX] paid the mans wages for the said voyage, and
the interrogated William Garn[?o]t the master and all the rest of her company
were in the service and pay of the said Llewellin, Baman and Mackerell
and hee doth not conceive or understand that the said Garnet was to repaire
or fitt the said shipp for the said voyage, or was intrusted by the said freighters
soe to doe, the said shipp being to be fitted and made sufficient by the
owners to the freighters hands before her proceeding hence, And otherwise
hee cannot answer, saving the said shipp seemed to this deponent at her
proceeding to be well fitted and prepared, nor did hee [?heare] the said Garnet
the master take any [?exceptions] at her fitting.

To the fourth hee answereth negatively, saying that the said shipp met with
noe extr[?a]mitie of stormes or [XXXX] of weather ither going or coming.

To the fifth hee saith that hee this deponent caused the said shipp at Virginia
to be repaired as aforesaid, and soe farr as hee or the workmen were able
and could get conv[e?eniencies] in that place, shee was sufficiently repaired,
but not soe well as if shee had bin here where more con[XXXXX] was to bee
had. And otherwise hee cannot answer saving as aforesaid.
