To the seventh article of the sayd Allegation This deponent saith that from the sayd [?XX]
day to the 30th of October 1652 the sayd Company of the Hopewell did
their utmost endeavour to lade the goods of the Recovery into the Hopewell but
saith the Caske was so faulty and worke so great and season so hot that it
could not be effected howbeit severall of the Mariners did hurt and [?surfet]
with excessive toyle ad labour. And saith that before all the Recoveryes
lading was or could be taken out of her videlicet upon the sayd 30th day of the
sayd month, the arlate Prince Rupert with the ship Swallow with 46 brasse
Gunnes and a frigott with 12 gunnes having neere 400 men with him came
up to Antego and seized the ffort thereof, and the same day seized the sayd two
shipps Hopewell and Recovery and goods in them respectively. And he rweally
beleiveth that by reason of the great strength the sayd Prince so came att [?her]
with, and the suddenness of his so comeing all the Inhabitants of Antego or
any present helpe that could then have been got together could not have
hindred the sayd seizure and surprizall, the premises he knoweth being then
present att the sayd seizure and seeing and observing the passages aforesaid
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the eighth article he saith there was a good quantity of sugar and other things in
the Recovery att the tyme of seizure and after three dayes this deponent saw
her turned a float by Prinnces Ruperts men, and after the sayd Prince left
Antegofound that the sayd Princes men had taken out all the goods and
lading that were in the Recovery as aforesaid. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the ninth article of the sayd allegation he saith of his certaine knowledge and sight
the lading of the Recovery which was wracked att Antego, was sugars in Caskes
and loose ginger and other goods, and saith the sayd goods were very troublesome
to get out and the Casks much broken in somuch that the sayd Powell beside
the helpe of his owne men was forced of the certaine knowledge of this deponent
to hire a Cooper att Antego att the rate of 30 pound of Tobacco per day to assist
att the heading of the casks and other Coopers worke necessary for the
preservation of the sayd sugars and goods. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the .10th. and 11th he saith that whilest the sayd goods were a taking into the Hopewell
as aforesayd there was a Spanish vessell cast away upon the Rocke att
Barbados about 8 leagues distance from Antego, and saith there came
some Spaniards to Antego in their boat to desire helpe for preservation of
severall persons lives in danger to be cast away upon the Rockes, whereupn
the sayd henry Powell for the preservation of the lives of the sayd persons and
for the furnishing the shipp Hopewell with pitch which he stood in great
want of, of which he heard there was a good quantity in the sayd Spanish
shipp tooke his boat and four men in the same and noe more, and thereby saved
and preserved the lives of 13. of the sayd persons in danger to be lost, and [?saved]
a good quantity of pitch, and in case he had not bene deprived
of his ayd shippe by Prince Rupert as aforesayd might have gayned a very
considerable freight for the carryeing of the aforesayd persons so saved and
some of their goods to [?Partincoe] which was in the way of the shipp Hopewells
returne home. And the benefit thereof would have returned to the [?XX]
Advantage of the Owners of the sayd shipp; And verily beleiveth the premisses
were so done by the sayd Powell not for any sinister or by end of his owne. And
otherwise cannot depose
