from Newcastle with her lading of Coales designed for London, and being sayleing
in Gallions reach in the River of Thames neere Woolwich towards the Port with
the benefit onely of the tide, the Master and Company of the said shipp Mary
perceiving the shipp the freeman arlate (John Whitty Master) then comeing downe the
said river, and approaching neere unto the Mary, the wind then being at West-
South-West with a fair gale, the Master of the said Mary and Company boare
up as much as possible they could to the South shoare of the Rover, expressely
to prevent that the said shipp the freeman might not fall fowle upon them
and saith the said Master and Company of the said shipp the Mary called aloud
to the freemans Companie, and made signes to them to edge up and come a sterne
of the Mary, but the said Whitty and Company wilfully boare up directly
upon the said shipp the Mary notwithsatnding that the said shipp the freeman
had as fair and favourable a gale of Wind and as great a convenience of
roome as could be desired to have kept cleare of the said shipp Mary, if the said
Whitty and Company had so pleased, the said shipp freeman then haveing the
full scope of the Channell; And saith that the premisses notwithstanding the
said Whitty and Companie violently rann aboard the Mary with the said shipp
the freeman, and made such a strong impression, that they broake the said shipp
Mary her maine mast, maine toppe, maine yard, foreyard, her maine
shrowdes, two of her maine stay in two places, and broke one side of the said shipp
the mary downe to the water, rent the foresayle and maine topsayle, much

Mary by meanes of the premisses hath really suffered dammage to the valyue
of two hundred and ten pounds sterling or thereabouts in the spoyling of the hull
of the said shipp, her masts yards shrowds sailes and rigging, and being a
Mariner who for many yeares hath been well experienced in shipps and tackle
and furniture thereof, hee is confirmed in Conscience that the sammage

immediately before the said encounter for lesse then two hundred and ten
pounds sterling. And further cannot depose:-/
