could not have bene receovered to be made fitt for this deponents use, and
there upon was resolved not to buy it. But saith he was present upon the day
of the sale thereof and of other parcells of Corne by the Candle by
the Commissioners for prize goods arlate, who then publiquely
according to the nature of that sale did putt off and sell the sayd
wheat to Mr Vincent his precontest but for howmuch in certayne he
att present remembreth not, but for about 19. or 20 shillings per [?quarter]
he taketh it, and saith the sayd Mr Vincent did bid and give more
for the sayd wheat than this deponent durst adventure to bid or
give for it, and beleiveth he gave the full and utmost worth
of it if not more. And saith moreover that of the observation of this
deponent the foresayd Commissioners for prize goods doe ordinarily
and usually sell their prize goods att a true balue and many
tymes at a higher value than the merchants can sell goods of
like kind and quality in their warehowses, and sometymes
to the losse and dammage of the Buyers to very considerable summes
of money, the experience whereof this deponent hath both himselfe
felt and seene in others. And saith that in or about July last
past good sound English wheat might have bene
bought about London for .4. [?nubles] the quarter or thereabouts [?that]
reverted aby dammage, and for use neere halfe so [?XXX]
againe as the wheat in queation. and att present the like good sound
English wheat may be and is bought about London for about 20.
or 22 shillings the quarter. And further cannot depose saving
he beleiveth that the Corne in question if it had not bene removed
out of the sayd shipp as it was but had continued in the shipp 3 or 4
weekes longer would have bene in a farr worse condition than it
was either for sale or use, and would in probability have bene
much more dammaged.

To the Crosse Interrogatories.

To the .1. 2 and 3. Interrogatories. he saith he knoweth nothing thereof

To the .4. he saith the wheat aforesayd might as he beleiveth have
bene helped by turnig and airing and made merchantable
but not have bene recovered into a perfect good condition. And
otherwise saving his foregoeing depositions cannot depose.
