conscience that the said shipp or goods seized or some or any part
thereof doe or doth belonge to some ffrenchman or ffrenchmen, subiects of
the ffrench king.

To the fourth hee saith the said shipp comming out of ffrance
as aforesaid, had neither passeport nor cocket that this deponent
knoweth of, And otherwise hee cannot answer.

To the fifth hee saith that upon the said seizure this deponent having
speech with Captaine Saunders, told him (as hee remembreth) that hee this
deponent had two thousand pounds adventure in the said shipp the
hare, and that the said Captaine asking him for his bills of lading, this
deponent answered him that hee had sent the two (which hee had signed by
the said master) over land, and meant to have had others of the master to
the same effect, or words to that purpose, and this deponent
further told him that it would be a greate hinderance to him this deponent
to have the voyage soe interrupted, but that hee told him that hee
had undonne this deponent and his masters, hee saith hee doth neither
remember nor beleeve, And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 6th and seaventh and the English bill of lading
interrogated nowe showne unto him, hee saith that the writing in the
said bill is this deponents handwriting, and the bill of his filling
up, and saith the same was soe written and filled up ashore at New
haven on the said day of the said shipps setting saile thence and before shee weighed anchor, and was not
written at sea nor after her setting saile from haver de Grace, And
saith that after the said seizure, the sais bill of lading was showed unto this
deponent by the Captaine (as hee remembreth) of the drake or dragon
frigot, and saith the said Captaine asked him this deponent why hee
told him that hee had noe bill of lading, and whie that bill of
lading was not signed or to that effect; and this deponent made him
answer that hee had given it to the Purser of the shipp and soe had
forgot it, or to that effect, and that hee meant to have at sea an
acknowledgement in writing from the said Captaine for his said goods
in generall, or els another bill of lading, but hee denieth that hee answered
that the shipp was taken or chased when or whiles they were making
of bills of lading. And otherwise hee saith hee cannot depose.

To the eighth Interrogatorie hee saith hee did not say to the said
Captaine or other that they would have made new bills of lading if
they had had moretime, but could not because the shipp was taken
soe soone after her comming out, but said hee ment as aforesaid to
have an acknowledgement or another bill of lading from the master
for his this deponents said goods as hee hath predeposed, and that
hee doth not remember that the said Captaine spake to him as is
interrogated, and hee saith and protesteth upon his salvation that
the master and hee had not mentioned or agreed together to make
more bills of lading after their comming out from their said last port
saving the acknowledgement or bill of lading which this deponent intended
to have for his said goods as aforesaid, neither was there any contrivance
betweene them about that acknowledgement or bill, but it was this deponents
purpose to goe and have it.
