as he saith publike and notorious and well knowne att Cadiz and
other ports of Spaine and in fflanders, and Hamburgh and other
ports and places beyond the seas, and to the Captaine and Company
of the Golden Starr as he verily beleiveth, the premisses he knoweth
being quartermasters mate of the Advantage frigot aforesayd
and present aboard her att the fight and seizure aforesayd. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the fifth sixth seventh and eighth articles of the sayd allegation This deponent
saith and deposeth. that the Captaine and Company of the sayd shipp the
Advantage first espyed the sayd shipp the Golden Starr about 6 or 7 of
the Clock in the morning of the day aforesayd and toward .8. of the
Clock or some thing before came upp with the Morning Starr or
Golden Starr; having before that att a distance shott a warning
peice with powder onely to which the sayd shipp the Golden Starr
made answer in a shott of powder in token of freindshipp; And
he saith that the Advantage frigott when she so came upp with the
Golden Starr wore out the Colours of the Commonwealth onely, and the
Captaine of the Advantage then haled the Morning Starr, being
neere to her and within hearing and commanded them to strike in the
name of the Parliament of England, and submitt themselves to
be visited, and saith the Captaine of the sayd Golden Starr in stead
of showing submission to the authority of this Commonwealth being
upon the Coasts of Englands as was demanded of him and is usuall
did in a contemptuous manner returne skurrilous and base language
and in an unbecoming and skornefull and reproach full way
turned downe his breeches, and held upp his bare bumme or
breech to the sayd Captaine Mill and Company, and waved his
Cuttle axe bidding the sayd Captaine Mill Come to Leeward, all
which this deponent saw and observed. And further saith that one
Gunn being fired over the sayd shipp the Golden Starr, the sayd
Captaine whereof ?hoysed upp a flagg of defiance being a Redd
flagg with the picture of an hand and a sword therein, and immediately
fired a Broad side upon the Advantage friggot whereupon there
begann a sharpe fight betwixt the sayd shipp the Advantage
frigot wearing the Colours of this Commonwealth and the sayd shipp the
Golden Starr wearing her flagg of defiance, in which fight
two of the Company of the Advantage frigot lost their lives, and
the Master and Company of the Golden Starr with their shipp
fought eagerly and did their utmost endeavour to sinke and destroy
the sayd Advantage frigot with the English aboard her so fighting
ipon the English Coast as aforesd. The premisses this deponent
being present in the sayd fight saw and observed, and knoweth the same to
be true as he hath now declared. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the nyth and tenth he saith that during the sayd fight and about one
of the Clock in the after noone of the . same day, the arlate shipp the
