hawle turtles , and the sayd Henry Powell sometymes went himselfe
but how often he knoweth not and beleiveth that in the hawling of turtles
there was spent in all the sayd severall tymes about 12 howres and not more, and saith the sayd
12 howres were not wastfully spent as he beleiveth being taken in the
morning or evening of the say, and the sayd Turtles by them caught
being an usefull food for the shipps Companie as aforesayd. And otherwise
he cannot depose, saving that he knoweth and beleiveth the foresayd premisses
being one of the Hopewells Company and present att Antego.

To the 4th Interrogatorie he saith that Captaine Powell aforesayd did about two
datyes before the seizure of the sayd shipp as aforesayd take four of his

the sayd Powell might have hired men att Antegoe, but not Mariners
