otherwise than as Master of their foresayd vessell. and that he hath not had any
conference with any touching what he should depose. nor hath had nor is to
have any thing for his deposition, what ever becomes of the cause, or
whether the sayd Compl[?e]ine prevayle therein or be over thrown. As for his
estate hee saith It is small, he living upon his labour in sea imployment
And further or otherwise cannot answer.

To the 6th. Interrogatory he saith he knoweth not nor hath heard what the value of the
sayd Complaynes goods were. nor what they would have yeilded att Ipswich, nor
what other dammage he hath sustained. nor can answer further touching
his beleife in the premisses not knowing the quantity kind or qualities of the
sayd goods otherwise than as aforesayd.

To the 8th. Interrogatory he saith. the sayd hoy Primrose was not a packet boat, but
was a vessell imployed for trade betwixt this Port and Ipswich att a
freight certayne for goods putt on board her. and accordingly the sayd
Complayne was to have payd for his goods. and would have done as hee doth
beleive. And he saith It is true there was an Embargo or stay of all
shipps by order of State att such tyme as he went with the sayd hoy
for Ipswich out of this River of Thames: and that he, (the sayd Order
notwithstanding) not having victuall sufficient to stay till the sayd Embargo
was ended, did in the night tyme gett out of this River with the sayd hoy and
goods in her. but there was not any shott att all made at or after him from the Blockhowses so farr as hee heard. And hee was forced by
stresse of weather upon the fflandran shoare neere Graveling as aforesayd. And he saith that
after the sayd vessell was bilged the souldiers and others from
Graveling (but without this Rendents consent and wholy against his will)
did by force seize upon the sayd goods and carryed them ashoare, into
some Church or other place, whither this Rendent was not permitted to
come. And he this Rendent did not sell the sayd Complaines goods or any
of them to the [?Governal] of Graveling, howbeit hee saith It is true,
that upon this Rendents addresse to him for releife and succour hee did
give him this Rendent fourteene pounds sterling which this Rendent
did receyve and hath since payd the same to the sayd Complaine.
And otherwise he cannot answer.

To the 9th Interrogatory he saith the sayd hoy when she came last from Ipswich
had a Mariner and three boys in her, and him this Rendent. And that
the sayd Mariner was not turned out of her by this Rendent, but was
imprested for the service of the Commonwealth And att that tyme
By reason of the presse this Rendent could nott gett another
Mariner in his stead but was forced, to returne for Ipswich with
the sayd boyes. And otherwise he cannot answer.

To the 10th Interrogatory he saith the sayd hoy the tyme interrate wanted neither
sayle nor tackle, but was able and sufficient and that he never did
complayne of want of sayles or tackle to his owners nor any of them
having noe cause so to doe. and referring himselfe to his foregoeing
depositions answereth negatively to this Interrogatory and every part thereof.
