To the second article hee saith and deposeth that in or neere about the
end of November and beginning of the moneth of december last
past one hance Marleare at Gottenburgh as factor or agent to and for
the arlate Anthony Phillips and William Smith of this citie merchants
laded the said vessell the Wheele of ffortune with three and twenty lasts
and halfe of tarr, and halfe a last of pitch, to be thence transported
to this port of London for the proper accompt and adventure of the said
Anthony Phillips and William Smith and here to be delivered unto them,
and saith that on or about the 21th of this instant moneth of december
(newe stile) the said shipp the Wheele of ffortune having received her said
lading aboard, departed from Gottenburgh for London her port of
dischardge, and on or about the 28th of the same moneth (newe stile)
towards evening comming (as this deponent and company guessed)
within three leagues of the North fforeland, and fearing in the darke
to be too much ingaged upon the coast they shortened their sailes and lay
a [?trie] with a [?course] of the maine saile, soe to drive till
day light came on that they might come in with more securitie, and
that assoone as the night came on they put out their light in the
sterne, which continued constantly up and giving a good light, till
eight of the clock at night at which time hee saith a
certaine shipp of fflushing named the Yonge Prince William,
whereof Claus double[?yope] was master, came from fflushing ward
bound for Biscay and came right before the winde, without
any light and ran right upon the Wheele of ffortune which had then
her light out upon her sterne, (soe that the company of the
Yonge Prince William might easily have seene her and passed by her)
and sailed her and sunck her downe in the sea with the foresaid goods
soe laden aboard her for the accompt of the said Anthony Phillips
and William Smith, and one halfe last of tarr for this deponents
accompt, and all his companies clothes, saving what they had
on their backs, and soe the said shipp and goods perished and were
cast away together with one of this deponents company named
[?Laurence] Williamson who was drowned in the said shipp
and all by meanes of the said shipp the Yonge Prince William soe
running upon the Wheele of ffortune, which might have bin avoided
if the company of the Yonge Prince had looked out and taken care
the Wheele of ffortune having her light out as
aforesaid. And this deponent and the rest of his company had
much adoe to save themselves and get into the Yonge Prince, And
this hee saith was and is true and publique, And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

To the third hee saith the said shipp the wheele of ffortune with her
tackle and furniture at and to the said time of her being cast away as aforesaid
were worth the summe of three and twenty hundred gilders, and that the mariners
clothes and instruments were worth the summe of three hundred gilders
and the said tarr was worth thirteene pounds sterling per last, and
the halfe last of pitch nine pounds sterling, and soe much the said
pitch and tarr (according to the common report and estimation) would have
yeelded at this port. And otherwise hee cannot depose
