To the first article of the said allegation hee saith and deposeth that
hee well knoweth the arlate Christofer Page and hath soe donne for
a yeeres last past, and alsoe well knoweth the
shipp the Samuel of London, of which hee saith the said Page was the
time arlate master and Part Owner, and for such commonly accounted
and reputed, which hee knoweth because hee this deponent in that time
served Carpenter in her, under the command of the said Page, who
executed the said Master shipp upon her.

To the second, third and fourth articles of the said állegation and the schedul[?e?s GUTTER]
annexed, hee saith and deposeth that the said Christofer Page in the moneth
of August last past, came to this deponent and told him that hee was
freighted to goe with the said shipp from this port to Teneriff to lade wines
and thense to retourne therewith to this port to deliver the same and [?asked GUTTER]
this deponent if hee would goe his Carpenter, whereunto this deponent
condescending, the said Page hired and shipped him to goe the said voyage
Carpenter of the said vessell, and this deponent goeing upon the said shipp
entered into pay on or about the thirtieth of August last, on which day
shee departed from Gravesend, and in or about the end of September or
beginning of October last shee arrived in Laratavo in the said Iland of
Teneriff, where hee saith shee was by mr Rayden and this order lade [?n GUTTER]
with an hundred and twelve tonnes of wine (accounting two pipes to the
tonne) which my Rayden was accounted therein the factor of the arlate mr
Bass; And saith that after the receipt of the said one hundred and
twelve tonnes of wine on board, there was roome to have stowed two or
three tonnes of wine more, which the said Page offered and was ready to
receive aboard, in case it had bin tendred or ready to have bin laden, and
soe much more the said shipp might have taken in conveniently, and having
left sufficient stowage for her victuall and provisions, all which hee
knoweth because hee was Carpenter of the said shipp and helped to stowe
the said wines soe laden, and sawe the premisses soe donne. And otherwise
hee cannot depose, saving the said shipp might all probabilitie have
brought both the said wines so laden, and the said other two or three tonnes
in case the same had bin laden, in safetie to this port, the danger of the seas

To the fifth hee saith the said shipp the said voyage staid on Laratavo in
the said Iland of Teneriff the space of fourtie five dayes or neere thereabouts
and would have staid longer, in case the factors had desired it, and would
have put any more lading aboard her, which hee knoweth for the reasons
aforesaid, and saith there were not any more wines tendered or offered to be
laden aboard than what shee received as aforesaid.

To the sixth 7 and 8th hee saith that on or about the eight and twentieth day of
November last the said shipp with her said wines so laden aboard her
departed from Laratavo aforesaid for this port; where shee a[?rriving GUTTER]
therewith and here made delivery thereof to the assignes of the said
mr [?Bosse], saving what was leaked out by occasion of a greate storme
that the said shipp met with in her said homewards voyage
the month of december last, which was soe greate and dangerous that
the company verily thought that both the shipp and they should have bin
cast away, the said storme continueing tenn or twelve dayes together
