To the tenth and eleventh Articles of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that
there being a shipp cast away or splitt about the Barboodes being 8
or 10 leagues from Antegoe the aforesayd Henry Powell did take his
shipps boat with four men in her and att his returne brought
some Spaniards with him which he preserved from perishing in the sayd
shipwrack. and saith there was att that tyme great want of pitch
aboard the Hopewell and otherwise he cannot depose.

To the twelveth article of the sayd allegation he saith that the sayd Henry Powell
before he went to the Barboodas was very carefull and diligent
in getting the goods and ladeing out of the Recovery and when he
went left 15 or 16 men aboard and gave them order to ply their worke
and be carefull of their busines. which this deponent being present there
knoweth to be true. And otherwise cannot depose saving he heard
the sayd Captaine Powell speake of the great want of pitch aboard
the Hopewell and knoweth that he brought pitch with him from the sayd
shipwrackt shipp att the Barboodaes. and other cannot depose.

To the thirteenth he saith that that in case the sayd Powell and the four men he
tooke with him to Barboodas had bene att Antegoe att the tyme of seizure
of the sayd shipps by Prince Rupert as aforesayd they could not with the
assistance of others of the sayd shipps Company or other helpe from Antegoe
have preserved the sayd shipps in any [?humaine] probability; neyther
could they have gotten the goods out of the Recovery into the Hopewell
and have stowed them in an orderly way with the assistance of the rest of
the Companyes of the Recovery and Hopewell before the sayd seizure
was made which he knoweth for that the sayd goods were so difficult to
unlade the casks so much out of order and the worke so over great in
proportion to the Company that were to doe it and the tyme wherein it
was to have bene done to have bene so preserved from the seizure
aforesayd and otherwise he cannot depose.

To the fourteenth article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that the sayd
Henry Powell did both in his owne person and in his inciting and stirring
upp his Company to worke, use as much care and diligence as became
any man to doe in like case of the certaine knowledge and observation
of this deponent. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the fifteenth article of the ayd allegation this deponent saith that the sayd
Captaine Powell did fish for and take some turtles att Antegoe being a good
food and provision and to the good benefitt of his Owners in saving of
other provisions, and otherwise saving his subsequent depositions
he cannot depose.

To the sixteenth article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that he hath knowne
the arlate Powell for 8 yeares or thereabouts and for all that tyme and
many yeares before he hath bene a master of a shipp. and hath ever had
the reputation of an honest diligent and industrious man in his ymployment
and trust. and somuch this deponent hath observed by him, and for his
part never saw or heard any thing to the Contrary and otherwise he
cannot depose.
