To the .18. he saith that the sayd Van Trump after the seizure aforesayd
did ride att an anchor two dayes within Command of the Castle of

and Saint Peter aforesayd without any molestation att all which this

the Gunroome thereof, and three of four dutchmen speaking the
English tongue say and affirme that the Purser of the sayd shipp
the Little Saint Marke was ymployed by the sayd Van Trump to the Governour
of Trapanie aforesayd for the betraying of the sayd shipps
the harry Bonadventure and Saint Peter aforesayd he the sayd Purser speaking the Spanish tongue and that the
sayd Van Trump did by the sayd Purser present and deliver to the
sayd Governour the summe of fifteene hundred duckatts in that behalf
and that the sayd Governour receyved the same from him accordingly
And otherwise cannot depose.

had not imprisoned the sayd Captaine Swansons men nor taken away the ffelensa
from him, or in case the sayd Governour of Trapany had protected the sayd

the sayd shipps the harry Bonadventure and Saint Peter and their ladeing respectively
had bene preserved in the possession of the sayd Captaine Swanley and
Company, and would not have bene taken by the sayd Van Trump and
his dutch shipps nor lost to the English. And otherwise cannot depose
