Kinge of Spaine as by Charterparty aforesayd doth appeare, And the sayd voyage being by this deponent
performed the sayd Travers hath in persuance of the Conditions of the sayd Charterparty by him selfe and by his order paid
this deponent a good part of the freight due for the sayd voyage in question according
to the sayd rates and is lyable as this deponent beleeveth to pay the remaynder
of the same, And saith the sayd And further saving his subsequent deposition
hee cannot depose/

To the 4th 5th and 6th articles of the sayd allegation hee saith hee well knoweth the arlate
Robert Bevin and that hee was and is factor for the sayd Gyles Travers at Teneriff, and
verily beleeveth that by reason of an Imbargo made by the King of Spaine upon all shipps
and goods of English merchants within his power in the yeere 1655 the factors of the English Merchants at Teneriff
in the sayd yeere while the English shipps laye in the Roade of Oratavo or neere
the Ilands of Teneriff did in behalfe of their principalls and the better to procure ladeing
for their shipps then there that they might not returne home empty give or pay a summe
of money unto the generall and officers of the sayd Island for admission money
to lade wines under colour and pretence of being for Account of dutch merchants And the reason of such
his beleefe is for that the sayd Bevin factor to the sayd Travers (with whose hand
writing this deponent is well acquainted) did write unto this deponent
then lying with his sayd shipp in the Roade of Oratava a letter bearing date the twenty
seaventh of November 1655 (new style) therein signifying to this effect that hee had paid in the
behalfe of his Principall the sayd Mr Travers a summe of money for admission
money for the whole ladeing of the shipp the John and Mary aforesayd, and that
according to Computation it amounted to fiftie eight Ryalls for each pipe of
wine laden aboard the sayd shipp John and Mary, which hee was forced to do that
soe the sayd wines might passe as laden for dutch merchants Accompts to [?avoide GUTTER]
the Imbargoe then upon the goods and shipps of English merchants, and further writt
that the arlate Mr Burridge was gone from Oratava to Garachico and had
not paid him the said Bevin his part of the admission money for such wines
as hee the sayd Burridge had on on board the John and Mary, and that therefore
hee this deponent should forbeare to signe any bills of ladeing for the sayd
Burridge his wines, unlesse one Mr Clapham who was then aboard [?an GUTTER]
English shipp at Oratava Roade, or some other person would in behalfe of
the sayd Burridge pay fifty eight ryalls a pipe for admission money
as aforesayd, And hee saith that hee this deponent having recieved [XXX GUTTER]
sayd letter did demande of the sayd Clapham in the Roade of Oratava
fiftie eight Ryalls a pipe, for admission money, for [?tenn GUTTER]
pipes of wine aboard the John and Mary, for according to the sayd Bevin [?his GUTTER]
order, which the sayd Clapham refusing to pay in behalfe of the sayd
Burridge hee this deponent refused according as the sayd Bevin [?had GUTTER]
ordered him by letters did refuse to signe any bills of lading for
sayd tenn pipes of wyne, And further to those articles hee cannot depose.

To the 7th article hee saith hee beleeveth the arlate Travers is dammified to the value of [?five GUTTER]
pounds sterling at the least by the sayd Burridge his not paying [XXX GUTTER]
to the sayd Bevin
to the use of the sayd Travers the sayd Admission [?money GUTTER]
(which at 58 Ryalls a pipe comes to at least fifteene pounds tenn shillings
sterling) which five pounds sterling profitt at the least might have bin
made thereoff in this Port of London if the same had bin paid to the sayd [?Bevin GUTTER]
and by him invested in wines and sent hither And further
to this article hee cannot depose./
