To the eighth article of the sayd allon he saith that the direct way to sayle from Zant
to the Streights mouth is about four hundred leagues and so accounted; and to
sayle from Zant first to Corsico or Leghorne and so to the Streights mouth
is about four hundred eighty five leagues and so accounted which is eighty five
leagues out of the way. And this he knoweth for the reasons aforesayd, And further
he cannot depose, for that the Course from Corsica to the Streights is by Leghorne,
and Leghorne not more out of the way in his judgment than Corsica is.

To the 9th article hee saith that according to the sayd computation, from Salina Road to
sayle to Zant and there stopp and thence to Corsica or Leghorne and so to
the streights mouth is about seven hundred forty six leagues, which is about
one hundred and one leagues out of the direct Course from Ciprus to the
Streights mouth, and so áccounted. And further refering himselfe to the reasons
aforesayd he cannot depose.

To the .16. and 17th articles of the sayd allegation which concerne the steeving of woolls hee
saith he cannot depose having noe experience of it.

To the 18th. he saith his deposition is true.
Upon the rest he is not examined by direction of the Producent.

Smyth dt

To the Crosse Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the .1st. Interrogatorie he saith he comes to testify in this cause att the request of Mr Chowne
and Capt Goodlad. and further otherwise than negatively hee cánnot depose.

To the second he saith hee cánnot depose, saving that he never was steeving
the woolls att Ciprus.

To the third hee saith he never made Ciprus his last Port homewards, but hath bene
there twice, and both tymes came to Zant having busines there, and order to goe
thither. and he knoweth not that it is usuall for shipps bound from Ciprus to London
to Touch att Zant unlesse they have order so to doe. And otherwise saving
his foregoeing depositions hee cannot answer.

To the 4th. he saith he hath severall tymes seene the sayd shipp the Thomas Bonadven
ture and she hath two deckes, and is in his judgment about two hundred
and sixty or more Tonnes, And further cannot depose.

To the .5th: he saith he knoweth nothing thereof.

To the .6th. he saith it is usuall for shipps in the streights after they are ready
to stay for Company a month or the like tyme by order of the principalls, and
so this Rendent hath sometymes done, but not otherwise. And further otherwise
than negatively he cannot answer.

To the 7th. he saith there is now way from Ciprus to England for a shipp but
by the Streights mouth; and he beleiveth the Thomas Bonadventure came that
way and any ship so coming, for England must sayle as the wind will permitt
so as if the wind happen to be contrary espécially for any long tyme, as it
sometymes happens, a shipp must of necessity either put into Port
or if she sayle must goe out of her direct Course, some tymes one way some
tymes another way to get advantage of winds, and by meanes thereof
may happen to goe one hundred or more leagues out of the way. And
otherwise he cánnot depose.

To the .8th. he saith that neither the Va[?re] nor Corsica, are in the way from Ciprus
for England, and beleiveth that such a wind can scarce possibly happen as to
make the passage by Corsica to be as quick a passage from Salina Road to the
Streights mouth as the direct way is or as such a Course is as is usually sayled
when the wind is not favorable, And otherwise he cannot answer.

To the .9th. he saith he never sayled directly from Salina Road to the Streights
mouth. And further knoweth not nor can depose.

To the .10th. he saith It is usuall and often falls out that sactors doe protest
against such masters of shipps as breake the orders of their freighters
in not staying in Port, or departing from thence when they should; And further
he cannot anwer not knowing what to conclude or beleive in the case interrogate
