by lowring their sayles in honour and ob[XXXX]ance and to the English
Colours and that they could with ease have taken the said shipp
without any ayd or assistance of or from the said English, The
premisses hee knoweth and declareth upon the grounds aforesayd
And further, saving his subsequent deposition, cannot depose:

To the 7th and 8th articles of the said Allegations hee saith, That presently
upon the said seizure, the Captaines of the said frenchmen of warr
went aboard the said English frigat, with their respective [?Commons]
to demand and reclaime the said shipp fortune and lading as their
Prize, and being by the Officers of that friggatt referred to the
English Commander in Chief then being in the Downes, they went
also aboard him to the same effect, and were answered by the said
Commanders that hee could not deliver them the said shipp fortune
and Lading, till hee had writt about them, and received advice from
London, whereupon they should have the said shipp and Lading, in
case they should be found Lawfull prizes to them, the said french
Captaines and Companies, The premisses hee saith hee partly saw,
and partly understood from the said Captaine John [?Coveruset]at his
returne from the said English Officers aboard his said shipp the
Mary Royall, And further cannot depose./

To the 9th hee saith, the said shipp the Goulden Eagle was and is
as shipp of 100: tunns or thereabouts, and had about 100. men, and
12. gunns aboard her at the time of the pursuite and Capture
aforesaid, and that the said shipp Mary Royall was and is a
Vessell of about 70 tunns, having aboard her at the time
aforesaid about 100. men, and 9. peeces of Ordnance; and were
either of them able enough to have overpowred and taken the said
shipp fortune, shee having onely about 9. or 10. men, and five gunns
aboard her. and in regard of her lading being not in a capacity to
have entertained a fight with them or either of them, This hee well
knoweth being a person who hath for many yeares been used to the sea in
warlike imploying. And further saving his foregoing deposition hee
cannot depose./

To the 10th hee saith, That the said shipp the fortune her lading in
Controversy consisted principally in wynes and brandewine of
Nantes, but by whom or what Countriemen the same were there
Laden, or for whose particular accompt they went, hee knoweth not
otherwise, than that by reason of her said flight, And according to
common report, since the said Vessell hath been brought to this
Port to unlade, the same belonged to fflandrians Subjects of the
king of Spaine. And further cannot depose./

To the last hee saith, his foregoing deposition is true:/

To the Crosse Interrogatorieies:- [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith, hee never knew the shipp fortune untill the
time of the Chase predeposed:-/

To the second hee saith hee did not see nor was at the lading of the
Lading of the goods controverted; nor knoweth any of the persons
interrate nor whose Subjects they are./
