their dutye therein and to hand the sayles unlesse they might
have two pounds of butter a weeke allowed to them to a [messe GUTTER]
which was halfe a pound of butter to a messe extraordinary, (the
actuall allowance being but a pound and a halfe of butter to a messe
and one Abraham Carr in the behalfe of him selfe and the reste
of the sayd mutineers told the sayd Master in expresse termes
in presence of this deponent and the rest of the sayd shipps Company
that they would not handle a sayle unlesse they might bee allowed
two pounds of butter a weeke to a messe, and reviled this deponent
and called him Rogue and other opprobious termes because hee haveing the ordering of the sayd allowance committed

was but a pound and a halfe of butter to a messe and that

shipp which was occasioned by the negligence of the Carpenter

to calke and keepe the sayd hatches tight, which they omitted to
doe though this deponent (observing the sayd hatches to bee faulty
and want calkeing) did severall tymes speake to them to amend
the same And hee saith that after the sayd shipps arrivall
at Zant with the sayd Corne Nathani[ell GUTTER]

deponent take some of the sayd Corne out of a Greekes boate which
