Powell and some of his Company did careene and doe necessary repaires in the
wayles of the sayd shipp and putt in severall peices of new timber, to make the
shipp stanch and tight. and others of the shipps Company next a shoare to cutt
wood for the stoweage of the Casks being a necessary worke; and upon the .18th
day being munday hauled the Hopewell to the side of the Recovery and removed
some of her sugars that came in her from the barbadoes, that they might come att
the ballast, and then heaved out her ballast and tooke out some of the gunnes
of the Recovery into the Hopewell, and upon the 19th day tooke out the rest
of the Gunnes and stowed them in the Hopewell. And saith that during the
sayd 14. 15. 16. 18 and 19. dayes the sayd Powell and company applyed themselves
carefully to their worke and busines and neglected noe tyme nor advantage
and having so disposed of the sayd necessary preparatory worke which could not have
bene done sooner by them upon the 20th day of the sayd moneth did begin to take
the sugar and other goods out of the Recovery into the Hopewell, and did
use their utmost endeavours and make all convenient speed they could to unlade
the Recovery, and neglected noe opportunity but applyed themselves to their
worke and ymployment withall care and diligence, the premisses he knoweth
being present att and engaged in the sayd worke and ymployment together
with the rest of the Hopewells Company. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the seventh Article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith and deposeth that
upon the thirtyeth day of the sayd moneth of October and whilest the sayd vessell
the Hopewell did lye by the side of the Recovery taking in the goods aforesayd
and before she [?could] have receyved in all the sayd goosd and lading the
arlate Prince Rupert ddid come suddenly att Antegoe aforesayd with the
shipp the Swallow having 41. brasse gunnes in her, and another frigot with
12 gunnes both of them having in them 400 men or thereabouts, and
did by force seize the ffort att Antego and afterwards upon the same day
the sayd ship the Hopewell and the goods in her, and the shipp REcovery
and the goods laden in her and still remaining aboard her, And he
saith the force of the sayd Prince was so much that no resistance might
or could then have bene made by the Companies of eyther or both of the sayd shipps
or by the Inhabitants of Antegoe to prevent or hinder the seizure of the sayd
shipps and their respective lading, which he knoweth and beleiveth being
then present att Antwgoe and seeing and knoweing the premisses. And otherwise

in Casks and loose ginger, and were very difficult and troublesome to be unladen
and the Casjs of the sayd sugars were deayed and out of order and the goods
thereof in unlading came out, so as the sayd Henry Powell was forced to
hire a Cooper att Antegoe to assist his owne Cooper aboard for the necessary
making upp of the sayd Casks. all which this deponent being present att
Antegoe well knoweth to be true. And otherwise cannot depose
