To the 9. 10. and 11th. articles he saith That the sayd shipp having suffered so much
in the sayd storme was of necessity to be fitted with what she lacked before shee
could proceed on her voyage for London, To which purpose the sayd Barnhide
(Gusthaven not affording such things) did goe to Christian=Sandt in Norway
and there provided a new mast which was fitted and sett upp, on board
the Hope, and allso two anchors and some sayles and Cordage such as that place
afforded. And he borrowed seventy Rijx dollars of his shipps Company
towards the paying for the sayd things; and had allso some moneyes from one
[?Peninck] (but how much he knoweth not). and allso sold a bundle of hempe
for the same purpose, but for how much he knoweth not. neyther knoweth he
what the sayd things cost. And he saith that for the fitting of the sayd shipp
seaven weekes were spent, and then she departed for London but was
forced by Crosse winds into Flackery as is allegat and there stayed
about eight dayes, and then comng for England and this Port
of London, the winds att length not favouring, did putt into Newcastle
about the beginning of december last. All which he knoweth being
of her Company as aforesayd. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 12. 13. 14. and 15th articles he saith that the hope stayed att Newcastle about
four dayes in which tyme the sayd Barnhide hired one Holland a pilot there
to bring the sayd shipp to London, which the sayd Holland undertooke to doe
and did after about eight dayes bring her and her lading to Harwich
whither she came in a morning and stayd not there for that there was
the Hare pinke being an English man of warr and a Ketch, and an hoy
then departing for London, and the Captaine of the sayd Pinke promising to
Convoy the Hope to her Port, the sayd Pinke, ketch, and hoy sett sayle and
lead the way, and the Hope followed them having her foresayd Pilott
still on board her, And in the afternoone of the same day the sayd vessells
sayling as aforesayd came upon the Sands arlate. and the Pinke and Hope
stuck fast. And the sayd Pinke within a small tyme was beaten in peices
and perished, and the Hope stuck so fast that though all possible meanes
were used she could not be gott off. thereupon the Company of the Pinke
being about thirty persons not being able to gett all safe a shoare in their
owne boat which was but small did endeavour to gett the Hopes boat which
the sayd Barnhide and Company would not part with, but, desiring to stay by
their ship to loose her if possible, kept their boat to save their owne
lives if the case should come to extremity. Of the premisses he was an eye=
witnes and otherwise cannot depose.

To the 16. and 17th. articles he saith That att length four of the Hare pinkes
Company gott into the Hopes boat, and acquainted the sayd Barnhide of the danger that
might befall him if the rest of the Hares Company should take his boat from
him, saying that they did intend so to doe, whereupon the sayd Barnhide and
his Company finding their endeavours to gett their shipp off the Sands to be
fruitlesse, and being sollicited by the sayd four persons as aforesayd did with
them goe to shoare in their sayd boat. And the sayd shipp Hope before her
Master and Company so left her had receyved much water in her hold, the
Premisses he knoweth being then present aboard her. And otherwise he cannot
depose, saving that the sayd disasters happened about three leagues
from shoare, and that it was midnight before the Hopes boat with the people
in her came to shoare, and saving that there was noe towne there and but
one little howse, and that noe helpe could be heard of to gett off the sayd
shipp from the Sands, and that afterwards there was newes that some ffishermen
had gotten her loose and were carrying her for London whereupon the sayd
Barnhide and Company came up to this Port.
