To the seventh article hee saith that the losse of the sayd horses was caused by
and through the weakness and insufficiency of the sayd stanctions which
were, not made so strong and sufficient as they ought to have
bene, as as this deponent for the reasons aforesayd knoweth they
might have bene; and the oversight or care of making the
sayd stanctions strong did properly belong to the sayd James Cooke as
mate, and sayd Johnson as Boatswayne. And he doth verily beleive
that in case the sayd stanctions had bene made so strong as they
ought and might have bene the sayd horses had not perished, but had
bene preserved. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 8th article of the sayd allegation, this deponent saith hee doth verily
beleive by what he hath seene and observed being a planter in
the Barbadoes as aforesayd that the sayd horses so lost in case they
had come safe to the Barbadoes would have yeilded a thousand
pounds Sterling. And that the sayd Batson and Company over
and besides what might have bene made of the sayd horses have
suffered losse, and dammage by the means aforesayd to a good value, but how much in
certayne he ćannot sett forth. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the ninth article hee saith the sayd James Cooke was and is a young
man of the age of twenty yeares or thereabouts, and is by repute
the sonn of the sayd Robert Cooke the master, by whom hee was
imployed as mate. But this deponent doth beleive by what hee saw
and observed that the sayd James was not fitt and able enough
for the imployment of a mate in a shipp for such a voyage. And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

Nicholas Hamond of Saint Michaels Cornhill London Barber
Chirurgion of and belonging to the sayd shipp Tankervale
aged thirty yeares or thereabouts a witnesse sworne and

To the first article of the sayd allogation, This deponent saith that the sayd shipp the
Tankervale Robert Cooke master was imployed by the say Richard Batson
and Company upon a voyage from this port to Gottenburran in Norway
have to take in horses, and thence to transport them to the Barbadoes
and so to returne for England, which hee knoweth for that he was shipped
as Barber Chirurgion on board the sayd shipp for that voyage. And
he severall tymes heard the Mariners of the sayd shipp and thee
sayd James Cooke and Maynard Johnson in particular say and affirme
that they were hired and had agreed to receive their wages for the
sayd voyage att the Barbadoes in Muscavadas Sugars att the rate
of four pence and pound, and that the sayd agreement was drawne up
in writing to which most the sayd Mariners had sett their names, and
