Edward Boddy of London merchant aged six and twenty yeares
or thereabouts a witnesse sworne and examined saith
and deposeth as followeth. videlicet.

To the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth articles of the sayd Libell, This
deponent saith, That being att Teneriffe one of the Canarie Islands in
the moneth of September 1655. last past he then and there receyved a
letter of advise from the arlate fferdinando Boddy bearing date
from this City of London in July 1655. last past, wherein amongst
other things, hee did certify this deponent, that he had taken to freight
a certayne shipp called the Little Mary George Dennis Master (being
the shipp and Master arlate) on a voyage from this Port of London
to Ireland and go to the sayd Island of Teneriffe, where she was
to be laden with wynes by him this deponent and one Mr David
Stephens (who was then likewise att Teneriffe) and so to returne
for London. for which cause he doth verily beleive and is well
assured that hee the sayd fferdinando Boddy did really take
to freight the sayd shipp as is arlate and as in the sayd Letter
of advise he did as aforesayd signify unto this deponent. And
otherwise hee cannot depose.

the sayd Libell This deponent saith that he did expect the sayd shipps

shipp Little Mary did take in herrings beefe and pipestaves att Waxford, and
that she afterwards came to ffalmouth and that the sayd beefe and
herrings att the tyme of their delivery there were much damnifyed.
And otherwise or further hee cannot depose.

To the fourteenth article he saith he doth beleeve that in case the little Mary

had gone directly for Wexford and so the Canaries without delay and losse
of tyme she might have finished her sayd designed voyage by the end
of October last or within some short tyme after. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the fifteenth article of the sayd Libell This deponent saith that in case the
sayd shipp Little Mary had arrived with her lading of herrings beefe
and pipestaves att Teneriffe in good condition, the sayd intended voyage
