the water came in so far. Neverthelesse he saith that another Pilot
being sent from Dover brought her into the harbour with much
hazard and difficulty hawleing her in by a Cable made fast
to a Captsane upon the shoare, without which the sayd shipp and
goods in her had undoubtedly sunke. And moreover saith that after
the Angelo Custode was so brought into harbour the storme did
still continue and the [?bellowes] did so tosse and dash her sides
and keele against the sands that it was a wondrous mercy and
provedence of god that she burst not in peices, howbeit she
sprang so many and great leakes as spoyled many of the
Commodities with the water she receyved being about four
foot deepe of water in her hold. And he further saith that
afterwards he did use his best diligence and advise of the
most able workemen he could procure and did so farr stopp the
leakes of the sayd shipp as to make her able to gett to the Port of
London, where he might unlade and repair her, it being not possible
without unlading her so to amend her as to make her able to procede
on her voyage for hamburgh, for he saith he had much adore to
gett to this Port, notwithstanding the pumpe was att worke conti=
nually, besides he saith ten of his mariners ran away from him
at dover not daring to adventure their lives any further in the
sayd shipp. And saith that with much hazard he att last brought the
Angelo Custode aforesayd to the Port of London on or about the
seven and twentyeth day of August aforesayd new stile, and unladed
her best goods videlicet the Rice, Almonds, Currants and Anniseeds
aforesayd and about nineteene Chests of Brimstone. And then
carryed her downe to a banke in the River to be veiwed and searched
by workmen whether it would [?quitt] cost to repair her, the lose
brimstone being about thirty tonnes and serving for ballast being
still left in her. And being arrived att a place neere Saint Catherines
for that purpose about the fifteenth day of September new stile last past
she sett a ground and att the ebbing of the tide tumbled on the
one side so as she opened in her keele or bottome from stemme to
sterne, And was presently filled with water. And he further saith
that he did endeavour to have weighed her that it was not possible to [?XXX GUTTER]
be done, and that it would Cost farr more then she was worth to mende
her, she being found all splitt in her bottome and timbers, and doth
therefore now lye under water being fitt for noe use but for [?the GUTTER]
fire, and very little worth. But he saith the sayles tackle and
other things that could be saved. (six gunnes excepted which [?are GUTTER]
still in her) were taken out of her and preserved, And the sayd [?XXX GUTTER]
