To the sixth hee saith that if George hughes or any other had sailed any
shipp to goe in a right course from Salina Roade to the Streights mouth, or
to goe or saile from Zant right from the Streights mouth hee or they must not
have come to Corsica, which hee saith is alsoe notorious amongst mariners
using those parts and places for saileing as this deponent hath donne for theise
30 yeeres last, ˹and upwards˺ and therefore thereby hee knoweth speaketh knowingly what hee deposeth
in this behalfe and saith that if the dutch fleete was at Corsica (as the comon
common fame is that they were) the said George hughes in his direct course
of sailing from Salinas Roade to the Streights mouth, or from Zant to the
Streights mouth had not met with themin all probabilitie. And otherwise
hee cannot depose.
To the seaventh article hee saith and deposeth that the direct way to saile
from Salina Roade of Cyprus to the Streights mouth is 645 leagues or
thereabouts and not above, and that from Salina Roade aforesaid to goe first
to Zant and thense to the Streights mouth is not lesse than 662 leagues or
thereabouts, which is 17 leagues or thereabouts out of the way from
Salina Roade to the Streights mouth, which hee knoweth having severall
times and often bin all all these places, and come both immediately from
Salina Roade to the Streights mouth and from Salina to Zant and thense
to the Streights mouth.
To the eighth hee saith that the direct course of saileing from Zant to the
Streights mouth is about fower hundred leagues, and that to saile from
Zant first to Corsica and thense to the Streights mouth is about 490 leagues
which is 90 leagues or thereabouts out of the way of sailing from Salina to
the Streights mouth, (meaning if such shipp saile to the North ward of Corsica
as this deponent hath bin informed George hughes did) And further saith
that to saile from Zant first to legorne and thense to the Streights mouth
is further than to saile from Corsica to the Streights mouth, by 15
leagues or thereabouts, all which hee knoweth for the reasons aforesaid.
To the nineth article hee saith and deposeth that from Salina Roade in
Cyprus to saile to the Streights mouth, and in the sailing to goe to and
stopp at Zant and thense to goe to Corsica and thense to the Streights mouth
is about ˹745 or˺ 750 leagues or thereabouts, which hee saith is 105 leagues and not
X or thereabouts out of the direct course of sailing from Cyprus to
the Streights mouth, all which hee knoweth for the reasons aforesaid.
And further hee cannot depose.
To the sixteenth article hee saith and deposeth that the way and manner
of steeving Cotton woolls is to lay a certaine number of baggs under neath
and as many on the topp of them, and then to steeve in betweene them the
like number of them or more, soe that if there be eight baggs steeved
in a day for severall dayes together; there ought and tis expedient that
the first day when they begin to steeve they should receive 24 baggs, or more
aboard, and still they ought to have daily many more sacks or baggs
aboard than they can steeve that day to supplie occasions, and for as much
as the weather may soe fall out that they cannot goe daily ashore
for their supplies. And otherwise hee cannot depose.
To the seaventh I think this is a mistake by the scribe árticle hee saith and deposeth that a shipp of the
burthen of 280 tonnes having in her 100 baggs of Cyprus Cotton
woolls steeved, and 400 sacks of galls stowed, may with 44 men take in
with much case 20 baggs more of cotton woolls every day for twelve
dayes together, winde and weather permitting them to be fetcht aboard,
