deponents such arrivall, and about the fourth or fifth day of September 1655
the sayd shipp Little Mary arrived allso there, having then two masters on
board her. And being so arrived This deponent on the behalfe of the sayd
fferdinando Body and by his order did assoone, as with conveniency might
be, lade and puttt on board the sayd vessell two hundred forty three
barrells of herrings, six thousand weight of beefe and eight thousand
Irish pipe staves, and such other goods and merchandises as were there to be
Laden, and putt on board her, and ordered the sayd Masters to sayle
away for Teneriffe in the Canaries according to the Charterparty made
for the voyage. And the sayd shipp was fully cleared and dispatched by
this deponent on behalfe of the sayd Body before the end of September
1655 aforesayd: And the sayd Masters were ordered to be gone immediately, and
the wind was good, and they might have departed from Wexford with in the
sayd moneth of September, but by reason of the sayd Masters differences
and manifold Quarrells each with other they went not nor departed upon
the sayd voyage so soone as they might. which he deposeth of his knowledge
being privy to the premisses as aforesayd, and well observing the quarrells
and differences of the sayd two masters. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 8th article he saith, That by reason of the foresayd differences, the sayd
shipp departed not from Wexford before the second day of October 1655.
and lost severall fair opportunities of departing, which the shipp of
one Captaine Smith and other shipps tooke advantage of, and so
might the sayd shipp Little Mary have done if her Masters had pleased.
And further or otherwise he cannot depose.

To the nynth article of the sayd allegation, he saith, That about the second of October
and not before, the sayd shipp departed from Wexford, and her sayd Masters
instead of sayling for the Canaries went to [?Youyhall] neere Kinsale,
in Ireland, and there, as by Letters (which this deponent receayved from
his Correspondents there), did stay and remaine with the sayd shipp the
Little Mary ten weekes or thereabouts spending their tyme vaynly
and quarrelling each with other as formerly they had done. And he
likewise credibly heard afterwards, that they brought their sayd
shipp to ffalmouth in England, both which deviations they made as this
deponent doth beleive and is well assured without the order or direction
of the sayd Body, or of any other for him. And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

To the 14th article he saith, It is very probable and he doth beleive that in case
noe differences had happened betwixt the sayd Masters but that the best and
soonest advantages of wynd had bene taken in the sayling of the sayd shipp
from this port to Wexford, and thence directly to the Canaries, the sayd
shipp might have dispatched there, and have returned safe with her
homewards Lading to England, before the end of October 1656
1655. as is arlate. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 15th. article he saith he cánnot depose

To the 18th (sic) article he saith hee cánnot depose
