Bellonsgate London Marchant, aged 40 yeares
or thereabouts sworne and examined.

To the first article hee saith that the arlate Rocus [?Parvé] was and
is an Inhabitant of Rotterdam, which hee knoweth for that
this deponent lately sent over
his sonne thither to him, to be by him the said Rocus placed out there at
schoole; and hee well knoweth that hee correspondeth alsoe with the
producent mr Robinson, this deponent having seene letters that have

of Rotterdam, a dutchman and a subiect of the States of the United Netherlands

hee doth not depose.

To the third article hee saith and deposeth that the said Rocus [?Parvé]
shortly after such writing by the said mr Robinson, retourned another

his letters and would effect the contents thereof, and by another letter hee
wrote to the said Robinson that hee had according to his said order
freighted a shipp for him there named the Armes of Brill (whereof
Martin Williamson Rosse was master) as in the name and for the

and lemmons, and that hee had ordered Gilbert [?Melso] his
factor or correspondent in these parts to lade the said shipp with
