of her and knowing that to be the first voyage hee made with her after
his buying her, and often this deponent heard hear him say to be that hee
was the owner of her, and hee easily diserned that hee was soe

the time of her said proceeding hence and of her losse was well worth
betweene three hundred and fiftie and foure hundred pounds sterling,
