as aforesayd to accomodat the sayd Taswell in order to his sayd Commission
which sayd colourable bill of sale this deponentw as the rather induced
to make att the desire of him the sayd Taswell, because the sayd
Taswell did pretend that in regard the sayd shipp was a fforeigners
and was according to Agreement with him to be sett out as a Mann
of Warr against the Enemyes of this Commonwealth there might
some dammage come to the sayd shipp upon some penall law unlesse
a Bill of sale were made thereof unto him the sayd Taswell
or to that effect. And moreover This deponent saith, That about
the tyme of sealing the sayd bill of sale as aforesayd there
was with the consent of the sayd Taswell and in the sight and
presence of this deponent, one Mr Desham, Mr Symon [?aschwXXX]
and another whose name this deponent remembreth not, a subscription
or writng made under the sayd Bill of Sale and upon the [?same]
paper wherein the bill of sale was written, In which subscription
or underwriting was exprest that the sayd Bill of sale was
colourable, and that thej sayd Taswell was to take noe benefit or
advantage thereby in relation to the property of the sayd shipp or
other interest therein of like nature, or to the same effect. And
saith that the sayd Taswell in truth had not nor hath nor ought to
have any right or title to the sayd shipp by vertue of the sayd
bill of sale, And saith that the aforesayd subscription [?XXXX]
writing thereof is cutt off as this deponent beleiveth by the fraud of

the arlate Emannuel de Croys thereof. And the manner of taking
the saud violent and forcible possession as this deponent hath himselfe
heard and beleiveth was by the assistance of a Mann of warre
as is arlate, he this deponent being a shoare when the sayd forcible
possession was taken, and the sayd Emannel de Croiz dispossessed as
aforesayd. And saith the sayd violent possessionw as taken before the
Arrest of the sayd shipp made by the Authority of this Court And
