from where hee saith shee was bound for dunkirke, where shee was to

To the second article hee saith and deposeth that while the said shipp the
said voyage was and remained at Roane aforesaid, there were laden and put
aboard her for the account of the interrogated Adrian van Roade fourtie
foure tonnes of ffrench wines, to be carried to dunquirke and there to
be delivered to John Butler, which hee knoweth because hee received
them aboard being master as aforesaid, and signed three bills
of lading (all of one tenor) for the same, and with the bill now showd
unto him is out of the said bills, and was by him subscribed, and is
one of the two then hee left with Mr Samborne the lader, but for
the third which this deponent brought with him, hee doth not nowe knowe
where the same is, And otherwise hee cannot depose, nor knowing as
hee saith the cost of the said wines.

To the third hee saith that the said shipp with
the said wines (and other wines) set saile and departed from Roane for
dunquirke on or about the tenth of November 1654, and that in
the course of proceeding shee met with very much storme and
tempestuous weather, whereby shee (neare Deale in kent) was
stranded and cast away on or about the 21th of the same moneth
notwithstanding all the care, diligence and endeavour of this
deponent the master and his company, who hee with all did their
utmost for the preservaton of that shipp and lading; And for the
better preservation of her lading when the shipp was ashoare, and [XXX GUTTER]
[?drie], this deponent caused a hole to be cutt in her bilge for the saving of
as many of the wines as might be saved, well knowing that when the
tide came in (the storme next renewing) the said wines would have bin
utterly lost by the shipps beeting upon the ground, and towards the
making such way through the bilge for the preservation of the goods
this deponent gave the first chop himselfe, and so the wines were
[?rolled] out for the most part, and the rest split, there being a
necessitie of cutting some of the caskes in [XXXX] to make
way to get out the rest, and those that were saved were
taken with the charge of Mr dala val and carried into warehouses
at Lower deale, but what quantities of Mr Van Roades wines
were saved or lost hee this deponent cannot as hee saith declare, And
otherwise cannot depose.
