To the fifth article hee saith that hee cannot depose

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first Interrogatorie hee saith hee hath traded as an oileman
and bin an oileman for theise foureteene yeares last, and hath
frequently traded in oiles in that time.

To the second hee answereth negatively for his part, and otherwise
hee cannot depose saving as aforesaid.

To the third hee cannnot depose saving as aforesaid.

To the fourth hee answereth and saith that within theise
two yeares last hee hath knowne that where the contract hath
bin before hand made of 236 gallons to the tonne of sweete oiles
236 gallons to the tonne have bin delivered. But saith withall
that the matter of buying and selling of oiles by the
tonne hath bin of late yeares soe dubious and disputable
in the [?point] of howe many gallons to the tonne
ought to be delivered, that it is growne customary to
contract expressely for the number of gallons of sweete
oiles, namely either 236 gallons or 252 gallons
and that nowe adays there is rarely buying or selling
of sweete oiles by the tonne without specifiying
and contracting beforehand betweene the parties or and for the number
of gallons to be delivered namely 252 or 236, and the
prices contracted for accordingly.

Repeated before doctor Clarke.
