To the xith. hee saith that when a shipp is lett out to freight, and the factors abroad have
not a full Cargo of their principalls goods, It is usuall for such factors to provide
other mens goods to supply that defect, unless it be to the freighters better advantage
to bring their owne goods to a speedyer market. And hee ćonceyveth that
in the case propounded the master of a shipp (if the factors require him so X to
doe) ought to receyve such other goods aboard as and provided though they bee
not the freighters goods, thereby to prevent dammage of dead freight. And
otherwise or further hee cannot answer.

To the. 12th. he saith he ćannot depose.

To the 13th he saith he ćannot depose having had noe experience in the
lading of galls.

To the.14th. hee saith hee cannot depose.

To the .15th. hee saith he hath beene att Porto fferrava, but it is so long since
that hee hath at present noe memory of the manner and orders used in
that Port, nor touching the weights there used. And further ćannot answer.

To the 16th. he saith he knoweth nothing thereof

To the 17th Interrogatorie touching the case of a Convoy and staying a short tyme
as for example eight or nyne dayes for the same hee saith he would in such
case doe what himselfe hath allwayes done for 16 yeares that hee did
command severall shipps, that is he would precisely follow the order of
his principalls and not transgresse the same, and in so doing he
conceyveth he could not be endammaged or punished whatever happened
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the .18th. he saith he knoweth not what galls were bought att Scanderoone
or woolls at Ciprus in the tyme interrate. And further ćannot answer

To the .19th. he saith he knoweth the sayd George Hughes. And further or

In this case have propunded
touching the following of
such Convoyes from Port
to Port.

To the .20th. he saith he did never command any Convoy in the Streights, nor
doth he know what the Course or usage of Convoyes is ˹XXXXXXXX˺ it being seldome
used when this Rendent followed Sea imployment which he hath now
left of for severall yeares last past. And touching the case of not
following the Convoy and a losse thereupon he referreth himselfe to the
law whether any punishment be to be inflicted or not.

To the 21th. he saith that all Convoyes are sent out purposely by the State
to conduct and sećure shippes from an enemy. howbeit he beleiveth that
it is free for any man to putt him selfe under such Convoy or to sayle without
it unlesse hee have Order from his principalls to sayle with the same.
And this Rendent for his part, as he hath predeposed, would in the case
propounded, keepe himselfe exactly to the Order of his principalls. And
otherwise he ćannot depose.
