flooke of the Wildemans anchor; a matter which hee conceiveth the
companie of the wildeman could not help, who as hee heard both
then and the English pilote they had aboard say, did not knowe
of the said ropes or weeles till that morning, and assoone as they
had notice they used all diligence for cleering and to avoide the
fishermans dammage, and this deponent sawe them very helpfull and
industrious to cleare the said wedles, some of them going into the boates
to the fishermen to that purpose, and all seemd much troubled that
any dammage should happen albeit they could not help it, comming
to anchor in an usuall place in the midst of the river where shipps upon
like occasion usually ride, which hee knoweth having used the river as
a watermans apprentise almost three yeares. And further hee saith that

notice to avoid the,. And otherwise hee cannot depose.
