in a place called Robbin hoods bay about five myles from Scarborough
where shee bilged upon a Rock and further to this article hee cannot

To the 4th hee saith that notwithanding the sayd the sayd Otters shipp came to
the sayd disaster, yet the sayd Otter saved all her masts sayles yards
Anchor Cables and boate this hee knoweth for that during the tyme the
shipp Samuell and her Company remayned at Scarborough hee sawe them
brought thither in a five man Coble or fisherboate, And saith hee hath
Credibly heard that the sayd Otter alsoe saved his lading of Coles and
sold them at Robin hoods bay and alsoe the hull of his sayd shipp, but for
how much hee sold them hee knoweth not nor hath heard, And further
hee cannot depose./

To the 5th hee saith that if the sayd Otter had carried his sayd
shipp to Scarborough, as the sayd Lee did the Samuell, (which hee
might very well have done if hee had pleased) hee had in all
probabilily and likelyhood saved both her and her la goods and gotten her
repayred of such such hurt as shee did her selfe by falling fowle of
the Samuell for a smale charge, soe that what dammage happened
to the sayd Otters shipp and lading (as is evident by what hee this
deponent hath of his owne sight and knowledge deposed for truth) happened
meerely by the carelessenesse or willfullnesse of the sayd Otter and
Company and not through any default of the sayd Lee and
Company And further hee cannot depose/

To the last hee saith his foregoing deposition is true./

Repeated before Doctor Godolphin.
