To the .3. Interogatorie he saith he comes to be a witnes att the request of
Mrs Pett to whom he is noe way related, but formerly was an Apprentice
with Mr Pett deceased, and saith he was not present att the making
of any Agreement for the goods in controversy, but heard his sayd
Master Mr Pett declare what the agreement was, and entred the same
in his booke, and hath since heard Captaine Edward Thompson acknowledge
that the Agreement was made as this Rendent had entred the same.
And he knoweth the values of the sayd goods not onely because they
stand so entred in Mr Petts books, but because he knew the goodnes
of the timber and other things, and well saw that others payd like
prices att that tyme, and knoweth that the like goods are now of a
greater value. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 2. Interrogatorie he saith that the repair of the sayd shipp was done
partly by Carpenters and others employed by captaine Thompson, who fetcht
stuffe and timber and necessaries out of Mr Petts yard att usuall and
ordinary prices, without any particular compact, and the value of that Stuffe
timber and goods did amount to two hundred thirty two pounds
two shillings six pence:- six pound four shillings ten pence whereof
was for stuffe sent as [?XXX] to sea in the sayd shipp. And part of the
sayd repaires were done by contract and agreement with mr Pett [?XXX] he
was to have for double sheathing of her two hundred eighty sixe pounds
and for three strakes of fflemish planck on each side seaventy
two pound ten shillings. and saith hee was to use so much tarr
as was necessary for the compleat sheathing of the sayd vessekk And
saith the last of tarr iis demanded in the Libell because the bargayne
was very hard and to mr Petts preiudice, and not otherwise as hee
conceyveth And further he cannot depose.

To the third he saith that a Carpenter contracting to doe worke or
repair a shipp is att his owne charge to furnish sheres, furnaces and
other necessaryes, and he saith that the sheres [?X]ayes planke and furnace
for the use whereof satisfaction is demanded were not nor are accounted
upon the worke which Mr Pett did by contract as aforesayd, but were
made use of by the sayd Captaine Thompsons Carpenters which he did
employ without any relation to Mr Pett. And otherwise he
cannot depose.

To the 4th Interrogatorie he saith he doth not know nor beleive that the
five hundred seventy nine pounds seventeene shillings mentioned
in the sayd Libell to be paid for the repaires done upon the sayd shipp
the Ruth was in full of the whole summe demanded upon the sayd shipp
or that sthe residue was abated under colour of any extraordinary prices.
but beleeveth the same was payd and receyved in part and knoweth
that the prices of the particulars were ordinary and usuall and that
Mr Pett had a very hard and ill bargaine of the sayd Contract
workes. And further he cannot depose.
