yet stressie; and saith that in and by occasion of the said stormes and
tempestuous weather the vessel unavoidably tooke in much water
by shipping of seas and otherwise; and further that whatsoever
damage is befallen the merchandize aboard her, the same came
and happened mearly by meanes of the said fowle weather and not by
any insufficiencie of or in the said vessel or by any neglect of the
