To the first Article of the said Allegation hee saith and deposeth, That hee this
deponent being a Native of hamborough, and having had his constant and fixed aboad
there from his infancie, and having been a Mariner and employed and experi-
enced in Navigation for about 15. yeares last past, well knoweth, that the manner
modell and fashion of building shipps at hamborough was about 12 yeares since,
and for severall yeares after very much different and disagreeing from the
manner and modell of building shipps used and observed in the United
Netherlands, those of hamborough and all the Easterling Ports being generally
observed by shipwrights, seamen and Merchants to be of a more massive
plaine and unpolished fabrique then those of the said Netherlands which are
ordinarily observed to be of a more light neat and cleanly composure, And further
hee cannot depose./

To the second Article hee saith That the shipp the Saint George arlate (whereof
John Martens dorpe is Master) was and is of the mould fashion and forme of
building of shipps usuall at hamborough and other Easterling Ports and
places about 12. and 10. yeares since of this deponents sight and observation, and so
much hee saith hee verily beleeveth may easily be discerned by any person or
persons well experienced in the firme fabricke and composure of shipps
built in hamborough and other Easterling Ports. And further cannot depose.

To the third article hee saith, That the said shipp the Saint George (whereof John
Martens dorp was Master) was in the yeare 1642. originally built at hamborough
by a shippwright and Burger of hamborough named Joachim Moller, by the
order and direction of the said John Martens dorp (who bought and provided
the timber for the said ships structure) Vincent van Campen now dwelling
at Cadiz in Spaine, Daniel Sloyer, Abraham de Bois, decloffe Classoft
Mathys heyndrick and others all Burghers and subjects of the ffree Citie
and State of hamborough, and saith this deponent saw and was assistant at
the lyeing in of the balkes in the said structure, and saw the same about
halfe built before this deponent being diverted by his seafaring imployment went
from hamborough to sea, and thereby did not see the compleating and finishing
of the said shipp. But saith That the building and compleating thereof
at hamborough as aforesaid was and is publique and notorious, being
well knowne seene and observed by many hundreds of persons then there
resideimg. And saith, That since the building of the said shipp, shee hath
alwaies been commonly and generally reputed and taken for and as a shipp
belonging to the said Port and free Citie of hamborough, and not to
Amsterdam, nor to any other port or place under the obsedience of
the States of the United Netherlands. All which the premisses hee deposeth
being as aforesaid a Native and Burgher of hamborough, an experienced
seaman, and well and perfectly assured of the certaine trueth of this his deposition
and declaration, And further cannot depose./

To the 4th article hee saith, That forasmuch as hee this deponent was not at
