To the 6. and 7. he saith he was present att and in all the sayd fight
from the begining to the end thereof, and saith that he knoweth that
the advantage frigott haled shott att and fought with the Morning
Starr or Golden Starr under the English colors onely and noe other
and saith he hath heart that the Captaine and company of the sayd
Golden Starr have reported and given out that the Advantage
haled and fought under the dutch and ffrench colors, wherein he saith
they have reported an untruth if so it be that they have so reported.
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 8 he saith the Advantage frigot fired two or three gunns att the Golden
Star before the Golden Starr fired any, that is to say one or 2 att a great
distance to demand the usuall homage, and one being come upp with
her to bring her foresayle to the mast that she might submitt to a visit
And otherwise cannot depose.

To the 9. he saith the sayd shipp the Golden Starr or Morning Starr gave
and made the first broad side against the Advantage and otherwise

To the 10th he saith he doth believe that it is usuall to accompt such
shipp for a Searover or pyrate as after haling another shipp under
the colours of one State, doth change her colars and use the Colours of
another state different from the first, and that such shipp and the Company
thereof may being by suspected for an enemy to the sayd shipp so
haled. But saith tht the Advantage did hale shoot and fight
under the English colours onely, and changed their said Holland colors att least
halfe an houre before they haled the Golden Starr; and further
saith for a shipp of warr att distance to weare false colours
to bring another shipp to Leewardwith intent to speake with and visit
her, as the Advantage did was not nor is not an argament of Pyracy
but was and is an usuall Stratagem and policy of warr, and very
necessary and lawful as he beleiveth and otherwise cannot depose.

To the 11th he saith that he this Rendent and severall of both the sayd shipps
Companies the Advantage and Waterhound were aboard the Golden Starr
or Morning Starr after the taking thereof. And saith that the Clerke
of the Checque belonging to the Waterhound did take out some plate
and sylver out of the Morning Starr before the sayd shipp was brought
into this River, but the quantity thereof he knoweth not. And saith
he this Rendent did not take out of the sayd shipp any money plate
sylver or goods. And otherwise he cannot depose saving he saith
that severall quantityes of small things above dock being accounted
usuall and lawfall plunder were likewise taken away out of the sayd
shipp before she came into this River by some of the company of the Advantage
and Waterhound, but who tooke the same in particular or to what quantity their
in kind or value this Rendent cannot sett forth.

To the 12.th he saith he beleiveth it is usuall for any shipp being haled
by another shipp wearing false colors to stand upon the defensive guard
but saith that the Advantage did hale with her owne true Colours videlicet
the Colours of this Commonwealth and otherwise cannot depose.
