To the .10.th he saith that knowing all care was used in the premisses that became
men to use he beleiveth that the sayd shipp and her lading was not lost

from the same as aforesayd, nor by reason of any negligence in the Mariners
thereof or any of them. And saith he beleiveth the sayd shipp and her
ladeing was worth about six thousand pound sterling. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

Top the .11.th he saith that the very day before the seizure of the sayd shipp
and not before this Rendent heard that Prince Rupert had taken the frigot
interrate, and the same day he heard the same contradicted; and heard that
the sayd Prince was about the Virgin Islands att the tyme the sayd shipp
Hopewell was att Antegop. And heard not of any dutch man of warr
in those Coasts. And otherwise he cannot depose

To the 12. he saith that about halfe and howre before the seizure all the
Company of the Hopewell for safety of their lives and Libertyes
departed the sayd shipp. and otherwise referring himselfe to his foregoeing
depositions he cannot depose.

To the .13.th he saith the sayd shipp Hopewell came to Antego on purpose
to receyve the lading that was aboard the Recovery, and for noe other
lading, and saith there was men aboard her enough and sufficient for a
merchants shipp of her burthen, and they with the helpe of the Recoveries men might have laden her in
20 dayes as he beleiveth and not in a lesser tyme, which he beleiveth for
the reasons aforesayd and otherwise cannot depose.

To the 14th he saith he was Gunner of the Hopewell att the tyme of seizure
and was aboard the sayd shipp till Prince Ruperts shipp came within [?halfe]
shott, and his frigot within pistoll shott of the Hopewell, and att the very
tyme of her seizure was with others of his shipps Company flying away
in the long boat for preservation of life and liberty from Prince
Rupert and his men who persued them, and saith he is neither promised
nor hath receyved any thing for his deposition in this cause, nor hath bene
taught or instructed to depose therein by Captaine Powell, and hath had
severall ordinary and familiar discourses with him since his production
as a witnes, and not otherwise, and saith the sayd Powell hath severall
tymes promised this deponent to pay him his wages due for the voyage
in question so farr as his shares of an eighth part amounts to, and saith
he doth not sue the [?sayd] Austin for his wages, but beleiveth that the sayd
Powell as master of the sayd shipp doth sue the sayd Austin and the
rest of the Owners for the wages due to this Rendent and the rest of
the Company of the sayd shipp'; And otherwise negatively
