dutch shipps were then come from Porto longone thither, which
letter hee saith as signed with the name of henry hughes fr
his brother George hughes, and this deponent beleeveth the same
was the hand writing of the said henry hughes. And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

To the 35th and 36th articles hee saith and deposeth that hee beleeveth that
the John and Conrard (belonging to the said Alderman ffrederick
and others) did arive at Genua in or about January 1652
English stile, and staid there about two monethes or more, and that
if George Norliegh and company had or could have had the goods
aforesaid (belonging to the said producents and
then in the possession of the said George hughes or others by his
appointment) they might have laden the greatest part thereof in the
said shipp the John and Conrard; which hee deposeth
for that the said shipp the John and Conrard tooke in goods at freight
for England that were sent from ligorne to Genua by severall
marchants to be laden aboard her as by advise of letters (which hee hath seene) is evident, and yet through want of goods
hee saith the John and Conrard came the greatest part emptie from thence, and afterwards arived
safe at London with such goods as shee tooke in
at Genua; And at last hee saith the said producents (through
want of shipping to bring their goods from ligorne, were faine to send
and did send a shipp purposely for them, which yet could bringe but
part of them, not being capable to containe them all, And saith
that noe part of those goods came or arived here at London till about
July or August last past, of this deponents knowledge. And otherwise
hee cannot depose.

To the 40th article hee saith and deposeth that the copie of the
Pollicie of Assurance annexed and now showed unto him doth agree
with the originall thereof subscribed by the Assurers therein
mentioned, which hee knoweth, because hee this deponent on the 17th
of November last compared the same with the policie
Registred in the Assurance office, and subscribed his name testifying
the truth of the said copie, as nowe appeareth, together with his
contest John Chase. And saith that some of the Assuers
have received their whole praemium's, and for the rest
hee saith that some of them have received their
halfe Praemium (they agreeing the voyage to and at Porto fferrara and
both they and all other the assurers acquitted of any
Adventure thence) and the rest are to receive their halfe Praemium
accordingly, And saith the said Pollicie of Assurance is become
of noe validitie in regard of the said masters deviation. And
hee beleeveth that all the losse happened to the producents in the
premisses, was occasioned by the said deviation. And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

Upon the rest hee is not examined by direction of the producents protcor.

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the second hee saith that hee was never either at Porto fferrara
or ligorne, And otherwise hee cannot answer thereto./
