them dyed except one horse and the sayd Cooke and Company
instead of goeing with the sayd shipp to the Barbadoes brought
her to Newcastle, of all which this deponent was an eyewitnesse
and beleiveth that they so came to Newcastle without the order
of the sayd Richard Batson or any other of the Owners of the
sayd shipp. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the fourth article This deponent saith that upon the sayd shipps coming
to Newcastle there was advertisement given to the sayd Batson
and Company of the sayd shipps being there and of the losse
of the sayd horses. whereupon this deponent afterwards received
a letter from the sayd Batson and Company directed to him this
deponent and the sayd Robert Cooke wherein they ordered the
sayd shipp to come about to the hope in this River of Thames
there to be fitted with such things as shee needed for her
voyage to the Barbadoes or to that effect. And otherwise hee

sayd sayd horses had bene preserved. And further hee saith that the
care and lookeing to the making of the sayd Stanchions did
properly belong to the sayd James Cooke and Maynard Johnson
as mate and Boatswayne, which hee knoweth by the observation
he hath made of the dutyes of Mates and Boatswayns in the
like ćase, for many yeares that he hath used the sea as a merchant
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 8th. article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that the sayd Batson
and Company by reason of the losse of the sayd horses have suffered
dammage to the value of fifteene hundred pounds sterling att the
least And so much the sayd horses so lost would have yeilded
and given in case they had come safe to the Barbadoes, which
he deposeth upon his knowledge in that trade, having used the
