To the tenth he saith he cannot answer to this Interrogatory eyther
affirmatively or negatively as this thereby required, for that he is
wholly ignorant what the common opinion of mariners is in the case
putt and suggested in this Interrogatory. and saith he never heard that
case argued amongst Seamen and knoweth it is not the case or matter
of fact now in question.

To the eleventh he saith he was aboard the Golden Starr after she came
into the Hope and not before, and tooke out of her a small whipsaw of
the value of 2 s or thereabouts and nothing else. and saith severall
of the Companies of the Waterhound and Advantage were aboard the
Golden Starr before she came into the River and afterwards, and he doth
beleive that severall things were by then taken out of her but by
whom in particular, what things in particular, or to what value he saith
he cannot depose. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the twelfth he saith it is usuall for any shipp att sea being haled by
another shipp who weares false colours and thereby gives suspition of being
an enemy or pirat to stand upon the defensive guard. but the sayd shipp
Advantage did not weare any false colour when she haled the Golden Starr
as aforesayd but the English colours onely.

To the thirteenth he saith if the sayd shipp Morning Starr prove prize he
expecteth a share as Carpenters mate of the Advantage frigot according
to the Lawes and provisions made in that behalfe, and not otherwise. and
further he cannot depose.
