Saint Mallo did with much violence and in a barbarous manner assault and
iniure the English then there resideing, in this deponents sight, this deponent being

his just demands to and before the said respective Courts of Judicature
and Councill hath necessarily expended and layd out one hundred and
sixtie pounds sterling or thereabouts, but hath not, nor can obtaine from them any [?repara= GUTTER]

thereof. The premisses this deponent well knoweth by reason of his familiar
and constant conversation with the person, and acquaintance with the afaires
and transactions of the said producent William Pym. And further
cannot depose./
