John Godolphin doctors of lawes.
Judges of the high Court of Admiraltie of England say
and depose by vertue of their oathes.

In or about the moneth of July last they theise deponents and Alderman
Thomas Allan of this citie and companie gave order to ffrans
Vasse merchant and burgher of Dantsike to lade aboard every fitt vessell
bound from Dantzike, Riga or Coningsbergh for London to the valewe of
foure or five hundred pounds sterling in hemp for their accompt to
be brought to this citie of London; And that the said ffrans Vasse
in persuance of
their said order freighted at dantsike the shipp the Patience of Stettin Ertman Ludike
master and sent the same to Riga, and gave oder there to John Van
Hoorn to lade hemp aboard her accordingly for the accompt aforesaid
for London, which the said John Van Hoorn did, namely 77 bundles of
hemp conteyning 232 shipp pounds and a halfe; And saith that for
prevention of taking by the Hollanders the dispatches and letters touching
the said ladeing were for as if the said lading was to be delivered
at Dunquerke to Abraham Vander Hoorne and as for accompt of him or of the
said ffrans Vosse, but in trueth and realitie they were to come

and company were to run the adventure of the same. And by that
way theise deponents and company have received severall other parcells
of hemp from the East countrey, and doe expect more. And

of this nation imployed by one mr [?leaver] of dover about a fortnight since met with the
said vessell as shee lay or was before or next Newport in fflanders
waiting for a pilate to carry her to dunquirke, and seized and

noe hollander or ffrench man or subiect of the States of the United
Netherlands or of the ffrench kinge have any interest in the said goods.
