interrate at about the space of nigh a land mile, and that
the place where she did soe lye at anchor is the usuall
and is a fitting and convenient place for shipps to
lye there at Anchor when they cannot gett further by
reason of contrary winds, And that she had soe layne there
for nigh upon 24 houres before the damage happened
unto her, And he answereth that he deposeth the truth and
nothing but the truth without respect or partiallity to either
shipp or person And further that of his the Rendents
certaine knowledge, divers shipps did safely passe
by the said shipp the Desire before such time as the shipp
the Sisters came, but he saith of all the sayd shipps he
only knew the Providence of Newcastle which passt by
ahead of the Desire. of which shipp the Providence Marten
Cooke was then Master, and he saith that when the Providence
passt by it was somewhat more then 3 quarters flood, and
when the Sisters came up it was (as he guesseth) neere upon
high water, and the wnd was either South West, or West
South Wesr, And further referring himselfe to his
former Deposition he cannot answeare./

To the fourth article he answereth that because he was aboard
and saw how the Sisters came directly aboard the Desire
he hath deposed, and is absolutely convinced and doth
beleive in his conscience that all the damage was occasioned
meerly by the Sisters, And further he knoweth not
to answeare/
