to the 7th hee saith it is usuall when factors have not goods
enough to ffully lade a shipp for the freighters accompt
to permitt others to lade and supplie the rest, and the said
factors giving way thereto, the master as to take in such
other goods soe tendred to be laden by other men, And
otherwise hee cannot depose saving as aforesaid.

To the 10th hee saith that the usuall rates of the Turkey
companie for freight of fine goods from Scanderooone, and
Cyprus hath bin 7 li per tonne, Cotton woolls 6 li per tonne
and galls 4 li per tonne, untill the late troubles with the
dutch, and then they were raised. And otherwise hee cannot
depose, saving as aforesaid, and saving that from ligorne
the freight was about the same rate.

To the 18th hee saith that the said Alderman ffrederick,
Mr ffowke, Mr Chewne and Mr Rowse are of the Turkey
company. And otherwise hee cannot depose, for this deponent
was then abroad.

To the 21 hee saith there will be some losse in Cotton
Woolls and galls in the lading and unlading, though they be
not stolen by the company.

To the 22th hee saith hee hath bin both at Cyprus and
Scandaron and hath caused Cottons and gawles to be laden,
and saith they are and ought to be taken in by weight, and
this deponent hath knowne many soe taken in by weight
with diverse shipps, And saith the master is bound to take
in such goods by weight and not by take, and there is allowance
for the same, and therefore it is but reasonable that hee should
be answerable for them by weight, and to make them up
according to the bills of lading and factories if ought be
wanting above the allowance, being as aforesaid bound to take them
in by weight.

To the 23th hee saith that Cottons upon their lading in the
straights are steeved hard in with engines, and soe hard that it
is very difficult to get them out without tering some of the baggs,
and that it is usuall for the owners of such goods namely
for Cottons and galls upon warning from the master to send
canvas (upon their arrivall) to make more baggs in place of them
that are torne apeeces, and to mend the old, And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

Top the last hee referreth himselfe to his foregoeing depositions
And otherwise hee cannot depose.

Upon the rest not interrogated by direction of the partie ministrant

Repeated before doctor Clerke.
