Gorris and others of Embden, who have for all the said time bin owners of
and in quiet and peaceable possession of the said shipp tackle and furniture
and for such commonly accompted, All which hee knoweth being master of her as
aforesaid: And saith that in or about the end of Aprill last the said shipp
was sett out from Embden by the said Egbert Ewers and company all of
Embden, her said owners, to goe to Norway and lade deales and carry
the same to this port of London in case shee could goe thither and were not
hindred by the hollanders, otherwise to goe for ffrance and deliver and
sell the same for the accompt of the said owners and lade salt and bringe
the same for Embden for the same accompt, And saith that hee this deponent
accordingly went wuth the said shipp to Norway and laded deales, and
departed thence therewith for London where hee was to deliver the same to
one Mr [?XXXX] of Wapping dock, whose servant was at Embden and agreed
with this deponent and owners for the price thereof and for delivery of the same
to his said master in case hee this deponent was not hindred by the hollanders,
and this deponent in his course was met and brought with his said shipp
and lading in or about June last to dover by one of the Parliaments shipps
and being there cleared, this deponent came and made the said delivery
to the said Mr Knipe and received his money for his owners for the same
according to agreement made with the said Mr Kinges servant, And after the
said deliveryy or during the same, there came letters from the said Egbert
Evers written in behalfe of himselfe and company of owners aforesaid to their
correspondent here in London and [?came] [?inclosed] to this deponent advising that whereas they had intended
and directed this deponent to goe for ffrance and lade salt for Embden
they had nowe thought good to order this deponent for the East countrey, and
therefore thi deponent should goe thither therewith, and that hee
this deponent should goe
to Rochell, for his said
lading of salt, which letters the said correspondent (a merchant of this citie)
imparted to this deponent being sicke and ordered him for Rochell
accordingly, whither this deponent accordingly weny and tooke in his
lading of salt for the East countrey and from Barent van Moppen who laded the
same for the said owners accompt and saith it is usuall and
frequent where there are severall owners and partners for one alone
to write the letters and addresses and for the factor to [?rewrite] and make
the consignement to him, to avoide the trouble and [?prolixetie] of many names in letters.
And that comeing neere the Messe hee was taken by Captaine Holman
and brought to Dover, and that the salt seized by him was and is the very
same salt soe laden by the said Barent van Mappen adn this deponent
hath made noe other voyage since his departure from London. And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the first hee saith that his shipp us owned in 28 parts, and this deponent
hath a 14th part therein and about 3 lasts or thereabouts of the said salt
are belonging unto him, the restitution of which shipp and lading hee saith
is due to the said owners being friends of this Commonwealth, and
therefore hee cannot [?XXX] it a benefit, howbeit the sooner the said
restitution is afforded the better it will be for the owners in regard of the
chardge the said shipp [?XX] at.

To the second hee saith that the said correspondence read to this deponent the said letters
soe came from Embden from the said Egbert Evers, and this deponent
being sick did not reade them himselfe, And otherwise hee cannot
answere saving as aforesaid.
