another in the said manufactures, but rather more, for some yeares tere
is asmuch or about asmuch spent in this citie along besides what is
vended and imployed in other parts and places of the nation, which hee
knoweth having had dealing in the said commodities for greate quantities
for the saiid nine yeares last. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the third hee saith that as hee hath heard from experienced merchants
and as hee beleeveth from very good ground there are yearly more
of the said sorts of woolls by two or three thousand baggs spend and
imployed in this Commonwealth than in all fflannders, And otherwise
hee cannot depose.

To the fourth hee saith that Amsterdam and other parts in Holland
are places where woolls of the sorts aforesaid are usually stored and
laid up, and it is usuall to have woolls of the sorts aforesaid sent
from those places into England to be here sold, because here they doe
yeald a greater price and valew, which hee knoweth by meanes of
his said dealing, and having bin partner with Mr Scot a hHaberdasher
a greate dealer on those woolls, to whom there have bin woolls consigned
from Holland of this deponents knowledge, namely of the said
sorts of woolls. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the fifth hee saith that hee hath had speech with diverse hatmakers
and clothiers that have come away from Holland since the differences
betwixt England and that countrey, whoe have reported that there are
very many families come thence and more expected to come by reason
cheifly of the decay of trade there in the said manufactures of
clothing and hatmaking, and that by meanes of the said differences and
the decay of trade thereupon ensueing the said sorts of woolls are
of lesse price and balew there nowe than they have bin formerly

To the sixth hee saith that there are warrs betwixt ffrance and
Spaine, and therefore hee conceiveth that those commodities namely
wools of the growth of Spaine cannot freely and without greate
difficultie and hazard be transported to and sold in ffrance, And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the seaventh that the later part of the yeare namely about September

the said Segovia and Castila woolls from Spaine into this Commonwealth
and that in the Springe or former part of the yeare a much lesse
quantitie is usually imported than in or about the monethes aforesaid
which hee knoweth for the reasons aforesaid, And saith that this present
yeare there hath not bin any considerable quantitie of the
said sorts of wools imported into England (saving those in question) by
reason of the differences betweene England and the dutch, for that
of his knowledge the said sorts of wools produce here a better
price by fifteene or twenty in the hundred since Midsommer
last than they did the last yeare, And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 8th hee saith that the woolls in question cannot without great
[?chardge] and hazard be carried into fflanders from hence, And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the nineth hee saith that of late and before the bringing in of the
woolls in question the market hath bin altogether [?unfurnished] and
