To the four and twentyeth he saith that the sylver now claymed was all of
it laden in the Bay of Cadize under the Commaund of the fforts belonging
to the sayd towne or Citty. And otherwise, saving that he knoweth not
of any pasport he cannot depose.

To the five and twentyeth he saith that the Pursers name of the Sampson
was Pedro de Campo Vieta but what Countryman he is this Rendent knoweth
not. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the Interrogatories given in 26th of May 1653. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first and second Interrogatory this deponent saith that he hath heard that It
hath bene prohibited by the King of Spayne for any persons to lade any
money plate Bullion or sylver att or in Cadiz or other the ports of Spayne to be
transported from thence without licence, And beleeveth there is and hath bene
a generall and publique fame thereof, But whether in deed there be any
such prohibition this Rendent saith that of his owne knowledge he cannot
depose, howbeit this deponent hath knowne that some persons have bene
released when they have bene found endeavouring the transportation of
sylver by the Ministers and officers of the sayd King; but after any
sylver is laden aboard he saith the says Ministers so farr as he knoweth
or beleeveth have noe power to arrest the same, or molest the persons that
laded it. and further saith that he knoweth that it is usuall after any
such sylver is arrived in the Ports of fflanders for merchants to dispose
thereof freely att their owne wills without molestation, And further
saith that every person that att Cadiz or other ports of Spaine ladeth any money plate bullion and sylver
aboard any shipp without Registring the same and obtaining a License
to the effect interrate doth not thereby loose the propriety therein unless the same be there apprehended but doth
still continue true and lawfull Owner thereof, and as and for his owne goods
may dispose of the same in every free port; And so to this deponents
certayne knowledge and experience It is held and practised in the ports
and places in fflanders under the Jurisdiction of the sayd King of Spaine
himselfe. And otherwise he cannot depose.
