To the second hee saith that about this time hee knoweth his
deponent met the producent Thomas Browning at Cadiz in the
shipp the ffortune arlate whereof the said Browning was the master,
and where with the said Browning from from Santa Cruz as this deponent was informed
by him, And while hee was soe at Cadiz this deponent sawe the said
Browning severall dayes on shoare about his shipps busines, And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith hee cometh in the instance of the said Thomas
Browning to speake the truth in this cause, and that hee hath noe
relation at all to him; and saith hee this deponent sawe the said
Browning severall times in the house of the interrate Mr Wilson in
Cadiz about the shipps business, and that this rendent was not in her
that voyage, And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the second hee saith that as hee hath heard the said Thomas
Browning had an Adventure of his owne on board the said shipp
the said voyage, and this deponent holdeth the said allowance of
a peece of eight per day in the case aforesaid to be a duety from the
owners and not a gratuitie, in as much as a master or purser cannot
well be at lesse daily expense on
shoare; and hee doth not conceive that the owners having a factor
on shoare shall not excuse the said allowance, for a master is seldome
or never consigned to a port, where[?in] the owners have not some
factor or other person to give him assistance and that the masters
going ashoare to him and staying there and waiting on him about
the shipps business is for the most part equall expense to him as if there were noe
factor there, and that rate of a peece of eight per diem is a
mans ordinary expense there, and often more than lesse. And
otherwise cannot answere saving as aforesaid.
