To the 26 hee cannot depose, saving his foregoing deposition.

To the Interrogatories in the second place.

To the first and second Interrogatories hee saith that at Cadiz and other
parts of Spaine it is unlawfull and prohibited to all persons to
lade any money, and plate to be transported thence unlesse notice
thereof be made and license obtained from the authoritie there for the
same, which thinge hee saith is publique and notorious there and well
knowne to masters of shipps and others using the trade of those places
And in case of such lading without license, if it be knowne unto the
magistracie or officers of authoritie there, the said silver and plate is
seisable and being taken is lost to them that soe lade the same, or to whom
it belongeth.
