pilotts belonging to that harbour both in her coming in and goeing out
And saith, That (as this deponent was then credibly informed and by his
particular observation is assured) no forraigne shipps doe use to passe
the said barr without the Conduct of such Pilot or Pilots, who doe
usually judge of the convenience of tide and water sufficient for the
passing of shipps according to their severall burthens and conditions, and

descended thither) designed as this deponent was then credibly informed to
passe the said barr, but findeing no conveniemt season so to doe, and the fruit
on board her being in a very perishable condition, the Master and Company thereof
were constrained by reason of their necessitated stay to throw much of the said
fruit overboard, this deponent seeing and observing the said fruit floating
upon the water, And saith That this deponent saw the said shipp John
