salarie or allowance out of such shipps as they so conduct, and are
in that respect well knowne to be men very [?cautelous] and circumspect
in such their undertaking, upon which their Creditt and Livelihood
depends, And saith That all the voyages this deponent hath beene at Porto
Port aforesaid, the shipp wherein hee served was usually conducted and
reconducted over the said barr by such Pylotts as by him is predeposed
And further hee cannot depose saving the said barr, the danger in
passing the same, and the use of such pilotts for that purpose
are publique and notoriously knowne to all that frequent the said Port
pf Porto Port/:-

To the 15th hee saith, That during the time the said shipp John being [?XXX]
as aforesaid, and readie to passe the barr of Porto Port, remained there as
predeposed, to the best of this deponents observation the wind still remaineing
contrarie to such her passage for about a moneth together, and that
during that time no shipp of that or the like burthen or draught
of water did or could, as was then generally observed amongst Marchants
there proceed outwards over the said barr. And otherwise saving his
precedent and subsequent depositions hee saith hee cannot depose./:

To the 16th hee saith, That during the time of the said shipp the John
remaining at Porto Port aforesaid there was in the same port a shipp
or Vessell of hamburgh (as shee as there reputed) which being laden
with oranges lemmons and other Commodities, and drawing about 10
or 11. foot water according to the then computation, and estimate of this
deponent and others; went from Porto Port toward the said
barr about 4. or 5. daies before the Johns descent thitherwards, with
designe, as was then and there commonly reported to passe the same, as
having very perishable goods on board her, much whereof was in the
time of her stayeing there throwne overboard being rotten and perishing.
And saith that in this deponents sight the said hamburgher shipp and the
John aforesaid went over the said barr at one and the same time
And further hee cannot depose./

To the 17th hee saith, That it was generally observed and taken notice
of by this deponent and others, that the said shipp John after such her
lading at Porto Port as aforesaid was one of the first shipps
of or about her burthen that did or could passe the barr aforesaid
And further cannot depose./

To the18th hee saith, hee knoweth nothing thereof, not being aboard the
said shipp the John when any such Pilotts, as is arlate were sent
aboard her, nor knowing by any other meanes any certaine knowledge thereof
And further cannot depose./
