to have passed by, Yet the said Vessell the freeman, by the wilfull and obstinate
miscarriage of the then Master of her John Whitty and Companie, did
violently runne aboard and ffell foule of the said shipp the Mary, and
broake her maine mast, maine topps, maine yeard, foreyard, her maine shrowds
two of her foreshrowds, her misen topmast, and cracked her misen mast, spoyled
her maine stay in two places, and broake one side of the shipp the Mary aforesaid
downe to the Water, and rent the foresayle and maine topsaile, very much
damnifying all the small rigging, and the maine saile very much deteriorated
by the meanes aforesaid, And saith that upon the said running aboard, some of
the Companie of the said Vessell the freeman coming aboard the said shipp the
Mary cutt and hacked the said shipp the Mary and her tackle violently
and according to their owne pleasure, the said Mr John Whitty then being on
board his said shipp the ffreeman, and in the hearing of this Deponent and his
contests and others, calling out to the Master and Companie of the said shipp
Marie, said aloud, You Collierly doggs, would I had sunke you, or I did
not care if I had sunke you, or words to that effect, by whic his expressions,
and by the gaire opportunity which the said Whitty had to have passed by
without any the least incommodation by the said shipp Mary, this deponent
is fully assured, that the said Whitty and Company did wilfully and of sett
purpose doe as is predeposed/ hee further saith, That forasmuch as this deponent
was personally present and on board the said shipp the Mary in the condition of
Masters mate at such time as the premisses were had and done as aforesaid
and did see observe and take speciall notice thereof, and by reason of
his experience of twenty yeares and upwards in Sea faring affaires, having
good knowledge of the worth of a compleaste furniture tackle and appurtenances to
such a shipp as to the Mary was belonging, hee doeth declare, that hee is in Conscience
Convinced, that the said shipp the Mary by the meanes predeposed hath
suffered dammage to the value of two hundred pounds sterling or thereabouts
and firmly beleeveth that the reparation of the said shipp in her hull, sayles
yards masts rigging and otherwise will really cost two hundred pounds or
thereabouts, before shee can be restored into so good a condition as shee was in
before the said meeting with the shipp freeman in manner as is predeposed
And further hee cannot depose//

To the third hee saith, That at the time of the dammage received as aforesaid
the said shipp the Mary was a Vessell constantly employed in the Newcastle trade
to transport coales from thence to this Port of London, and that by reason of the
said dammage sustained, was necessitated to remaine in and neere the River of
Thames, and now is at the New Crane to be repaired and fitted to sea, by
meanes whereof shee hath lost an employment to Newcastle as aforesaid for coales
which, in case the said dammage had not bin, shee might in all probability
have well performed within the time of her said necessitated remaining herem [?there GUTTER]
being severall shipps, which within that time have from London performed the
like voyage to Newcastle and back againe with their lading of coales; And
saith hee well knoweth, being for long time accustomed to such voyages, that the
Owners of the said shipp, by the said necessary stay of the said shipp for repareing
