or thereabouts and the winde then blowing southerly with a pretty stiff gale the master and Compa=
ny of the Successe arlate did espie a vessell commeing right downe before the winde
or at least very little quartering and steering directly upon the broad side of the Successe
and this deponent being upon deck of the Successe then with othesrs of the sayd shipps
Company the sayd Master of the Successee and this deponent and others of the sayd shipps
company called out and cryed to the Company of the sayd shipp which they soe espied
coming right upon them (which shipp proved to be as afterwards appeared the dove
arlate) and desyred them to goe cleere of the shipp Successe but the Company
of the shipp the dove made no answere and regarded not what was sayd to
them but hold on their course , which the Company of the Successe perceiving put
their helme a Lee, and endeavoured all they could to stay the shipp Successee and prevent
the dove falling fowle upon her, but the Company of the dove hold still on their
course and in a carelesse or wilfull manner runne directly aboard the Successe
and brake downe her Larboard bowe to the water and soe bruised her and [?shattered]
her that within a short space after shee sanke downe right and foundred and perished
in the Sea togeather with the sayd ladeing of Coales and Master and mariners Cloathes and instruments and provision of butter and salmon and other things on board her And hee saith that the Master
and Company of the Successe seeing them selves in such eminent and apparent
danger after the blowe receaved as aforesayd, called and cryed out to the Company
of the dove to staye and helpe t preserve the lives of the Successe her Company
but the Master and Company of the dove regarded not their ceye but sayled
awaie and answered not a worde nor any of [?them] soe much as appeared upon the decke but one man who stood uponthe forecastle of the dove, but spake not nor seemed any way to regard the danger to the Successe and Company were in but left the shipp Successe and her company to
the mercie of the sea, which they did as this deponent verily beleeveth to the
end they might escape unknowne, and that if the Successe and her company perished
it might not be knowne who were the cause thereof, And soe the sayd david Adamson
the Master of the Successe and Company seeing them selves in that desperate condition, and in that
unchristianlike manner forsaken by the dove and her Company who had done
them that mischeife, did endeavour the best they could the preservation of their owne
lives and by Gods mercie gott into their shipps boate and sooneafter they were gotten
thereinto the sayd shipp Successe and her ladeing sanke by reason of the blow shee
receaved as aforesayd from the dove, and after the sayd Master of the Successse and
his company had floated up and downe upon the sea without either meate drinke
or water or any thinge fitt for their sustenation and preservation by the space of [?three]
howers and better, a shipp or Hoye (whose name this deponent knoweth not) bound for Newcastle
comming by Gods providence neere them, tooke pittie of their distressed condition
and receivef them aboard and carried them to a place called the Sheilds neere Newcastle
the premisses hee knoweth being one of the Company of the Successe and present when
all the premisses were soe done as is above declared And further to these articles
hee cannot depose./

To the 6th hee saith for the reason aforesayd videlicet that hee was one of the Company of
the Successe, and came thither with the Master of her hee knoweth that the sayd Master and this
deponent and the rest if the Company of the Successe after their sayd vessell was lost as
aforesayd did arrive at Newcastle upon the 10th or 11th of August last and found the
vessell the dove arlate lying on the outside of other shipps at a place called
Jarra Key neere Newcastle, and saith the dove had then her bowe dubbed with the
stroake shee made against the Successe when shee sanke the same, and a Carpenter
was then at worke mending the sayd doves bowe And this deponent
hath heard david Adamson affirme that the Carpenter who
belonged to the sayd Shipp dove did confesse to him the sayd Adamson that it was
the same shipp dove did confesse to him the sayd Adamson that it was
the same shipp dove whose bowe was then a mendeing which did sinke
the sayd
