the tyme of her Arrivall into the River of Thames, upon which contract
the sayd Thomas Newman and Thomas Ayres did oblige and bind the sayd

saith he doth not know the certayne summe the sayd Edward Beale and
Companie were to receyve upon the sayd contract upon the arrivall of the
sayd shipp Expectation in the River of Thames. And saith that the

provided victualls for her Company, all which this deponent verily beleiveth
they did with the moneyes so taken upp as aforesayd uppon Bottomry of
the sayd Edward Beale and Company, and verily beleiveth that in case
they had not beene so furnished by the sayd Edward Beale and Companye
the sayd shipp could not have gone and proceeded from Messina, and
beleiveth that the money of the sayd Beale and Company was a maine
cause and occasion and meanes which brought the sayd shipp from Messina
And so much or to the like effect the sayd Newman and Ayres have confessed
and declared to this deponent- And otherwise he cannot depose.

sayd shipp in manner as aforesayd videlicet in the month of March 1650 or
about that tyme the sayd shipp sett sayle from Messina under the Conduct
of the sayd Thomas Newman and in or about July or August next ensueing

be true for that he this deponent did Lade aboard the sayd shipp att
