To the .1. he saith he well knoweth and considereth the danger of periury and
saith the Hopewell arrived att Antegoe upon a thursday being as he taketh
it the 14. of October. and continued there 16 dayes before she was taken
by Prince Rupert. which he knoweth being one of her Company, and otherwise
cannot depose.

To the .2. he saith that the sayd Henry Powell and the Mariners of the Hopewell
in case they had constantly wrought and done their dutyes might have
laden the Recoveries goods aboard the Hopewell in .12.
dayes as he beleiveth. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the .3. he saith that about 12 of the Hopewells Company spent two
dayes and noe more in cutting of wood being a necessary worke. And
saith that the sayd Powell went severall tymes to haule turtles but how
often he knoweth not, and about 2 or three of the shipps Company spent
as he taketh it after the three first dayes, and hower or two every day
and not more in hawling the sayd turtles and therein spent during
the tyme they stayd att Antego summing upp all the howres together
about one day or 24 howres and not more as he beleiveth and as for
any other fishing or hunting he knoweth not. and knoweth the premisses
being one of the sayd shipps Company and otherwise cannot depose.

To the 4 he saith that on or about the 28th day of October 1652 and in the night
of the same day the interrate Powell tooke four men of the Hopewells Company
in a small shallop of five tonnes and went with them as this Rendent hath
heard to the Barbiidas, and returned not agayne to the Hopewell till about
the third or 4th day of November following having bene so absent from
his shipp five or six dayes or thereabouts. And otherwise cannot depose
saving he knoweth the premisses for the reasons aforesayd.

To the .5. he saith that in case there had bene more men aboard the Hopewell
to worke if that the sayd Powell and the 4 men that went with him to the Barboodas
had stayed aboard the Hopewell she might have taken in her lading in
lesse tyme than she did, or could doe without them, but not before the
comeing of Prince Rupert as he beleiveth without extraordinary
helpe, and saith that men were very scanty att Antegoe, and it being
then the planting tyme there, he doth not know whether the sayd Powell
could have procured any helpe and assistance of men or noe. and

To the .7. he saith he doth not beleive in his conscience that in case the sayd
Powell with all the Company belonging to the sayd shipp had continued
aboard her and done their dutyes in her as they hought to have done, she
had or could probably have bene laden and goen from Antegoe before
the tyme she was seized by Prince Rupert, referring himselfe to the
Reasons aforesayd. And otherwise cannot depose.
