they were informed that there was peace made betweene this
Commonwealth and the States of the United Netherlands and their respective
subiects, and had not any information at all to the contrary, but still
that all was a peace, and some ffisher[?men] said that Van Trump was
beheaded as one that had endeavoured to hinder the peace, all which this
deponent heard, And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 4 hee saith that the dutch vessell in question which was met
withall by Mr Pibus and company in their said retourne,
was soe met withall off Shetland, and about two hundred leagues
from England, and the said Pibus only haled her to aske newes of
her, but did not make any fight with her, but only shot certaine
shotts wide of her to make her come by the lee, and saith the said
Pibus and company could not make any seizure of her, having noe

water seaven yeares, and saith the same was carried to
Greenland in the Martha, where a hull man having neede of an
anchor, the said Pibus lent him that, and the said hull man as hee
hath heard was cast away afterwards and the said anchor lost, and
hee verily beleeveth the said Mr Pibus did not make any proffit
