And the promise and dećlaration was within the tyme aforesayd att Ciprus made to the
sayd Captaine Hughes by the sayd Consull Roger ffooke att severall tymes as aforesayd,
and upon severall dayes of the certayne knowledge and in the presence and
hearing of this deponent, who then lived and lodged att the sayd Consulls howse
as is above sett forth. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the Crosse Interrogatories [CENTRE HEADING]

To the 1 and 2: Interrogatories he saith he was aboard the Thomas Bonadventure the tyme interrogat
and the sayd shipp and Convoy were then both bound for England, intending to touch
att Leghorne in their passage, and accordingly would as he beleiveth have sayled
if they had not bene hindred. And the fight interrate happened off of Monte Christo, not farr
from Corsica, and Porto Longone (as he thinketh) was the neerest Port being as he iudgeth
about ten leagues from the place where the sayd fight happened. And otherwise he cannot answer.

To the 3d he saith the sayd shipp lay about a league from the place where the Cottons were to be putt in boates
the tyme interrate. and he conceyveth that 170. baggs may be carryed to a shipp so lying in
ten dayes, but not so as to be steeved. And otherwise he ćannot depose.

To the 4th he saith he is certaine that the sayd steeving Instruments were not brought away in the sayd
shipp but were there ćarryed a shore within the tyme interrate.

To the 5th. he saith he lived about 4 yeares att Ciprus, and ćame from thence the voyage in question
on the Thomas Bonadventure, And otherwise or further he cannot depose.

To the 6. 7 and 8th. Interrogatories he saith that as he beleiveth Zant is out of the direct Course from
Ciprus to England, which is by to the Streights mouth, and that Corsica is out of the direct Course
from Zant to the says Streights, and Leghorne more out of the way than Corsica; but
how much the sayd places are out of the way he knoweth not. And referring himselfe to his
foregoeing. depositions cannot further depose.

To the 9th. he saith he hath not any experminentall knowledge in the steeving of woolls, nor ćan
answere certainly and of his knowledge to this Interrogatory. And for what he hath seene
observed and heard in the poynt of taking in and steeving of woolls he referreth himselfe
to his foregoeing deposition. And otherwise cannot answer.

To the. 10th. he saith he doth not know or beleive that the interrate George Hughes did within
the tyme interrate ever promise or say to the sayd Roger ffooke Richard Chowne or any otherthat he would stay for the sayd Convoy, but he did allwayes expresse the Contrary to this Rendent
who otherwise would have come away in the dart or African, and not have stayd for the
Thomas Bonadventure, for his passage for England. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the .11th. he saith he knoweth nothing thereof.

To the 12th. he saith he hath observed that the steeving of woolls is usually done first by
laying the baggs all along one upon another as many as can be so layd (which is as hee taketh
it called a Tier.) and then to steeve as many or more baggs as were so tiered. And
otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 13th. he saith That It is usuall in the lading of woolls to send from the shoare some tymes
on one day and some tymes on another twenty or thirty or more baggs ˹a day˺ aboard the shipp
according as the shipp ćan conveniently receyve them that so upon occasion of bad
weather (which is usuall there allmost every day in the middle part thereof), the Company
may have steeveing worke to doe and noe tyme be lost. And the same Course was as he
observed, used in lading such shipps as came to Ciprus, and so the Thomas Adventure was.
laden as he beleiveth. And otherwise he ćannot depose.

To the .14th. he saith that not having any particular knowledge by experience in the steeving
of woolls he cannot depose otherwise or further than he hath deposed in his precedent
deposition to which he referreth himselfe.

To the .15th. he saith that he was on board the sayd shipp a little before the sayd last parcell
of woolls were steeved, and in this deponents judgment there was not room enough
to receyve 50. 50. or 40. baggs of woolls in the sayd shipp without steeving: and
Captaine Hughes then told the sayd Chowne that he had not roome to steeve any more in the
usuall place of steeving. And otherwise he cannot answer.

To the .16th. he saith he doth not know whethere the sayd shipp when she came from Cyprus
could have carryed thirty tonnes of Cotton woolls more than were laden in her or not if but
he rather thinketh she could not for that the sayd last parcell were steeved in her gunn deck GUTTER
and there did not appeare to be any roome left for more: howbeit he saith that she did
receyve a good quantity of Currants at Zant in the trave way where woolls could not
be steived. but how many tonnes the sayd Currants amounted to he knoweth not. And
further or otherwise he ćannot answer or depose.
