the said frigot went with her to the fflemish sic) Ilands to Saint Michels
to stop her leake and to get [?reXXXX] of Victualls, and thence hee
was carrying her for Rochell. but commong in the heights of 44 degrees
and a halfe or thereabouts were met with by an English shipp
whereupon the said Collart quitted the said shipp the
