not suffered soe much as to write to him or any other, nor to have any
pen; ink and paper untill such time as their (sic) had bin a [?clancular]
proceeding and a pretended condemnation of the said shipps and goods,
and then this deponent and the said Belin were turned ashore
unprovided of clothes and necessaries, this deponent being in his
wastcote and drawers, and desiring to have some of his clothes but
could not obtaine them. And comming ashore and understanding of the
proceeding against their shipps and goods and the adjudication of them
this deponent went to the office and intreated to have a coppie of
the sentence or adjudication, which hee saith was expressely denied
him, and the said shipps and goods were all sold by the authoritie
and to the use of the kinge of Spaine and soe the said owners were
most injuriously dispoiled and deprived thereof to their excessive
losse and dammage. And saith the said frigats and gallies were
belonging to and were in the imployment of the kinge of Spaine. And
the dammage soe sustained by the said Courteene and
company owners of the Consent and of her lading over and above the
principall summe of eight thousand three hundred pounds
aforesaid, cannot in his estimation be lesse then five thousand pounds
sterling, nor can the losse of the said Ballcharch and company for
the George and goods be lesse than five thousand pounds in his
estimation besides their foresaid principall of eight thousand
three hundred and odd pounds. And otherwise hee cannot depose.
