appeared as well by generall report as peices of shipps that were seene floating
after their perishing. And this deponent for his part doth verily beleive
that in case the sayd shipp had not bene a strong stanch and able shipp, or in case
her Master and Company had not shewed their labour and diligence as aforesayd
the sayd shipp and all her lading in her had perisht and bene lost by the
extreme violence of the sayd tempest. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the eighth article hee saith that the sayd great mast yards Ropes and tackle, and
sayd Cable and Anchor were lost as aforesayd for preservation of the sayd shipp and
her lading which he knoweth for the reasons aforesayd. And the sayd mast and
other the sayd particulars so lost were in his judgment of the value of four
hundred and sixty six dollars or thereabouts, and that then like cannot be bought
for a lesser sume of money. And he conceyveth that the sayd losse ought to be
borne betwixt the sayd shipp and lading in a rateable proportion. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the ninth and tenth articles hee saith that the sayd shipp being so brought to G[?a]sthaven
could not depart to performe her voyage till she was provided of a mast yards
and other necessaries such as were lost. And none being to be had att Gasthaven
of the sayd Master was forced and did goe to Christian=Saint to provide the same and
there bought a mast, yards two anchors with cordage and some sayles such as hee
could there procure for which (as upon his returne he did affirme and as this
deponent beleiveth he payd about three hundred Rijx dollars, and could not gett
the same cheaper. And he saith that being there in a strange place and having
not money sufficient to pay for the sayd tackle and necessaries he the sayd Master was
forced and did borrow seventy Dollars of the Mariners of his Company: and allso
twenty five dollars of one Evert Penniake a Master of a shipp then att Christian
Sant (as the sayd Master upon his returne from [XXXXX] to Gastaven affirmed) and as this deponent
beleiveth. And this deponent knoweth that (he the sayd Master (still wanting
moneyes to pay for the sayd things) did take a bundle of hempe out of the sayd
shipp being one of the thirty marked as aforesayd, and he (as he sayd) sold the
same for about 80 dollars and could not gett more for the same, five of which dollars
(as he also sayd) were spent in satisfying the Customes and other dutyes for the sayd
bundle of hempe. And the rest together with some of his owne money
and the moneyes borrowed as aforesayd making in all (as he sayd) about three
hundred dollars, were payd for the sayd mast sayles anchors and necessaries above
mentioned. And the sayd mast was brought a board and sett upp and other the sayd tackle
fitted for the performing of the sayd voyage of the sight and certayne knowledge
of this deponent Carpenter in and of the Hope as aforesayd. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the xith article he saith that the sayd shipp necessarily lay att Gusthaven about six
or seaven weekes to be fitted for her sayd voyage, and then departed and meeting
with crosse winds was forced to putt into fflackery in Norway and there to
stay about eight dayes, and setting sayle from thence for London was by
contrary winds forced to putt into Newcastle, whither she came about
three weekes before Christmas last and this deponent in her, whereby he
knoweth the premisses to be true. And otherwise he cannot depose

To the xijth and xiijth articles he saith that the sayd Barnhide did att Newcastle hire
a pilot by name John Holland to Pilot the sayd shipp to London, and the sayd Pilot
came on board and though the winds were crosse yet after some dayes conducted
the sayd shipp and lading (the sayd bundle of hempe sold att Christian sant excepted)
safe to Harwich, whither being come there was a man of Warr called
the Hare=pinke which as was there sayd used to Convoy shipps to London, and
an Harwitch Ketch and an Hollands hoy ready to depart for London, and
