Smyth dt/

The 29th day of March.

The foresayd Stephen Allen examined
upon the Crosse Interrogatories administred on the behalfe of Mr
Smith's Clyents saith as followeth. videlicet.

To the first Interrogatorie he saith that George Boys aforesayd did speake to him
to be a witnesse in this cause, but he cometh to testify the truth by the
order of this Court as he conceyveth And that he was masters mate
of the sayd shipp, and hath not receyved all his wages for the voyage
in question, saying that the sayd Boys hath attached forty pounds of
his wages in the Poultry Counter, pretending that he hath so done under
colour of dammage sustayned by goods, brought home in the sayd shipp
Susan and Anne. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the second Interrogatory he saith he is sure that a good quantity of the sugars
were damnifyed and washt away in and by the sayd Hurricano. howbeit
he saith he doth beleive some of the sugars were dry and well conditioned
after the sayd Hurricano, but how much was wett and hurt, or how much did
continue dry after the sayd tempest was over he cannot particularly
declare. And he further saith that the sayd shipp was leaky after the sayd
Hurricano and before she struck upon the rockes as aforesayd, but not so=
much as she was after her such striking. And such striking he saith did
happen by the Scantines of the wind as aforesayd, and not by the unskill
fullnes of the Pilot, beleiving that as the wind then happened
to be the same would not have bene prevented by the ablest pilot. And
otherwise he cannot depose.

To the third Interrogatory he saith he doth not know that whether the sayd sugars
and goods were well conditioned or noe att the tyme of their lading
being they were brought aboard in caskes which he saw not opened
And saith that some of the sugars (but how much he cannot say) was hurt
and damnifyed att the tyme of their arrivall here, but to whom the sugars
so damnifyed did or doe belong he saith he knoweth not. And
further or otherwise cannot answer.



The same day, the foresayd Robert Lunn examined upon the
sayd Interrogatories saith

To the .1. Interrogatory he saith he comes to be a witnesse att the Instance of the
sayd George Boys. and saith he hath receaved one halfe of his wages for the
voyage in question, and that one and twenty pounds is still due to him
which the sayd Boys doth deteyne under pretence of dammage susteyned
by certaine sugars brought home in the sayd shipp. And otherwyse
he cannot depose.

To the second he saith that some of the sugars were wett and damnifyed in the sayd [?hurricano GUTTER]
and some as he beleiveth remained dry. And saith that the sayd shipp by
the said hurricano did become leaky: and by striking on the rockes became [?much GUTTER]
more leaky. and that she struck upon the rockes not by the unskillfullnes
of the Pilot but by a sudden Gust of wind that unexpectedly came against
the shipp whereby her former wind that was fair to have carryed her from
the Islands became scanting upon her. And he beleiveth that the sayd [?strike GUTTER]
could not have beene prevented as the wind then happened. And otherwise
he cannot answer./

To the third hee saith he knoweth not whether the goods interrate were well conditioned [?at GUTTER]
the tyme of their lading nor not. nor can tell what quantity of them [?was GUTTER]
spoyled att their arrivall here, he being not present att their delivery And
otherwise cannot answer.
