To the first Interrogatory he saith hee comes to be a witnesse by the meanes of the
sayd Boys; and that he was Carpenter of the sayd shipp as aforesayd, and
hath thirty pounds of his wages deteyned from him by an attachment
procured by the sayd Boyes, but under what pretence knoweth not. And

To the 2d hee saith the sayd sugars were not all dry and well conditioned
after the sayd hurricano but were damnifyed (as aforesayd) thereby, howbeit
some of them as he conceyveth did remain dry. And saith that the
sayd shipp was not tight after the say hurrican (sic), but was leaky, and that
after she [?struk] upon the Rockes she became much more leaky
And saith she struck upon the Rockes not by or through any want of
skill or care in the sayd Pilot but by a Gust of wind that fell
suddenly athwart her, and brought her former wind scanting upon
her. And otherwise he cannot answer

To the last hee saith he knoweth not in what condition the sayd goods or
