the [?worke] men have bin unfurnished with the said sorts of woolls
and albeit there hath bin greate enquerie made after the same,
yet have they bin scarse to be got for money, and therefore hee
is as hee saith well assured that the said commodities to the
quantities of two or three thousand baggs are at a better
market in England than in ffrance fflannders or hollandm and
may here be sold at a higher price and greater rate than
in any of those places or other parts thereabouts, And
this hee saith was and is true and notorious and well knowne
to merchants and tradesmen dealing in that commoditie. And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the crosse Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith hee cometh required by Mr Budd the
States proctor to be a witnesse in this cause, and that hee dwelleth
in lumbardstreete, and hath soe donne for theise fifteene yeares
last past, and that hee sawe the maior part of the woolls in
question at Chesters key within five weekes last. And saith
hee is not bound to answer touching the valew of his estate.

To the second hee saith that hee hath used to buy woolls of Spaine sometimes of one
merchant and somtimes of another as hee hath found them furnished
and hath dealt with most of the merchants that have driven any
considerable trade in those commodities at one time or other
And that hee this summer bought some of severall merchants
as Mr Edward [?Radden] and others, And otherwise hee
cannot answer, saving they have bin considerable quantities
that hee hath bought this summer.

To the third hee saith that in case the woolls in question
came to be sold hee may probably buy a parcell of them if hee
finde a penniworth to be had therein as hee conceriveth it for
him to doe being in the way of his trade and calling. And
otherwise negatively.

To the 4th hee saith that the usuall weight of Spanish wooll
is somtimes more and somtimes lesse, videlicet from an hundred and
a quartern to three hundred and a halfe, and hee never made
soe narrowe inquirie of the quantitie of those woolls in England
[?XX] [?XXXX] as to be able to estimate the number of baggs that [?were]
[?at] [?XXXX] in this land, and saith hee hath knowne neare [?how]
hundred baggs in one mans hand at [?XXXX]. And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

To the fifth hee saith that Castilla wools are of two sorts
namely felt woolls and cloth woolls, and accordingly they are
used, and saith they would more be used if they could
be had than formerly they have bin in England, because the
Commonwealth growes more populous, and the
people more reduced to [?CCesse] of habit and clothes then
formerly, and otherwise hee cannot answer.

To the sixth hee saith that Castila woolls are a [?XXXX] [?XXXX]
