20. times, before any opposition made against the said man of warr, perswaded
commanded abd earnestly entreated the frenchmen aforesaid not to shoot at
or agiants the said man of warr, but they not regarding such his commaunds or
entreaties and so much over-powring his Companie did make resistance against the
said friggot or man of warr, this deponent and Companie not being able to hinder
