she had undoubtedly come to a good markett for hee saith that in the
monethes of September October and November 1655. Irish herrings
well conditioned did yeild in the sayd Island eighty ryalls per barrells
or thereabouts, and Irish beefe well conditioned did yeild a Ryall
per pound or thereabouts, and pipestaves of Ireland did yeild
after the rate of a thousand ryalls per thousand or thereabouts, and
so much and after that proportion the sayd Lading of the Little
Mary (provided the same had come well conditioned) would then and
there have yeilded. which hee knoweth for that he was in the sayd
monethes in and upon the sayd Island and well saw and observed
the currant price of such commodities. And otherwise hee ćannot depose

To the 16th article of the sayd Libell This deponent saith, that the quantity of
goods sayd to be laden in the Little Mary att Waxford. videlicet. two hundred
forty three barrells of herringes, six thousand weight of beefe, and
eight thousand pipestaves in case they had come safe and well conditio=
ned to the Canaries the sayd intended voyage, would there after the
rates above specifyed (which were common and ordinary prices) have
produced seventy pipes of Canary wynes or neere thereabouts, which
he knoweth for the reasons aforesayd and for that he observed the
then ćurrant price of wynes there, and hath computed what might have
bene so produced. And he further saith that in december and
January 1655 last past. Canary wines did yeild in this Citty thirty
four pounds per pipe, and that was then and still is an ordinary
price for such wynes which he knoweth being a merchant trading
ánd dealing in such merchandize in this Citty, when, hee arrived
in december 1655. last past. And otherwise hee ćannot depose.

To the 17th. article of the sayd Libell This deponent saith that the sayd fferdi=
nando Boddy over and besides what the sayd goods would have
produced had about seventy pipes more of Canary wines there
provided which were ready and prepared and designed to be laden
on board the sayd shipp the Little Mary in case she had come thither
as was expected by this deponent, which wynes were not brought
home, but are in eminent danger of being lost to the sayd fferdinando
Body, in case they be not allready seized and lost, which yet is very
probable. And saith that in case the sayd last mentioned pipes be seized
the sayd fferdinando Body will thereby be endammaged five hundred pounds
att the least, And though they should happen to escape seizure (which is
not probable) yet he by leakage, losse of markett and ordinary
dammage in the quality of the sayd wynes in that they could not be sent
for England will be endammaged four hundred pounds or thereabouts
in this deponents Judgment[?es] who did assist in the providing of the
sayd wynes. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 18th article of the sayd Libell, hee saith, that in case the sayd shipp Little
Mary had so performed her designed voyage as this deponent expect
and beleive she might have done, she might have taken in her lading att
the Canaries and have bene gone from thence very probably before
Embargo came thither; however he saith in case shee had not come
