To the 6. 7. and eighth. hee saith that the direct Course from Cyprus to England is
directly to the Streights mouth and Zant is something out of the sayd direct
Course, but as the wind stood the voyage in question, the sayd direct course could
not be sayled. And saith the direct Course from Zant to England (as to the
Streights, and Corsica is about 40 leagues out of such direct Course, yet as
the winds often happen to be the Course by Corsica may be assoone performed.

burthen interrate there is not roome for 170. baggs more to be receyved
on board and steeved afterwards; and that therefore fourty four men
cannot receyve so many on board and steeve them afterwards # And
otherwise he cannot answer.

To the 12th. he saith that in the steeving of woolls it is the usuall Course first to
lay a Tier of baggs and then to steeve in as many more baggs as
are teired, and sometymes more. And the same Course was observed
by this deponent, and his mates in the steeving the woolls interrate. And
otherwise he ćannot depose.

To the 13th. he saith that in the lading of woolls it is usuall to fetch about
twenty baggs some dayes from the shore to prevent losse of tyme and
keepe the men att worke. and afterwards as roome is made by steeving
to fetch more, and still to be ćarefull that the acts of the shipp be not

as the hindering the men in their steeving and the like. And this Course
was observed in lading the woolls interrate. And further, otherwise than

Tier of baggs is Layd which in a shipp of the burthen interrate may conteyne

steeving beames are to be placed, bolted and fixed which worke will
ordinarily require a dayes tyme, afterward, it is proceeded to steeving
in doeing whereof the number of men interrate may some dayes steive halfe
a dozen or more baggs, and some dayes not above three, and some tymes
not above one by reason of the very great difficulty of steeving the uppermost
sackes whereof by the violence of the worke sometymes the great ropes
