To the 2 Interrogatorie hee saith hee knoweth that the sayd shipp the voyage in question

shee was to deliver the same part at Ligorne Interrogate and the rest at London
and saith the sayd goods being laden hee this deponent did at Ciprus soe
a hundred twenty and odd dollars told out on shipp board and carried on shoare to
pay the port charges of the sayd goods there and hee beleeveth all customes and
duties due at both the sayd parts to the Grand signior for the goods there laden
were payed before the sayd shipps departed from the sayd ports with the sayd

harris her Master and his company did relade part of her sayd
Cargo on board her but were interupted and hindered from ladeing the
rest by certaine officers of the Grand Signior who pretended that by reason
her goods were unladen againe there that therefore the Grand Signior was
to have new customs for them but after a while hee saith the sayd Officers
by the mediation of the Interrogate Roger ffowke (who is accompted
the English Consull there) were contented to permitt and did permitt the
sayd Master and Company to relade the rest of his sayd Cargoe on
board the sayd shipp which being done the sayd ffowke did in presence
of this deponent and his contests Thomas Metford Robert Pembridge
