To the 4th hee saith hee the interrate Cornelius alias Neels Peterson was entertained

the Souldjery there, and finding him without shooes doublet or other necessaries
hee gave him some old cloathes to cover him, and tooke him aboard his shipp, all which
notwithstanding the said Neels continued and was at the time of the said shipps
seizure in a verminous and nastie condition for want of shift, and since the said
seizure this deponent hath seene the said Neels in a very good suite of Cloathes with
