To the eighth negatively referring himself to his forgoing deposition.

To the nineth hee saith it is not possible for a shipp to saile in a
direct line from Salina Roade to the Streights mouth by reason of the
shooting out of lands in the way, and saith that when the winde
was contrary a shipp is likely to saile out while neere the Christian and
another neere the Barbary shoare, as this deponent hath donne,
and goe from one to the other, especially between Cape Bono and
Sicilia where the sea is narrow, and in the Streights mouth
and in some places those shoares are nearer and some other places further off
and where shipps so traverse, it is to get ground through but a
little sometimes is severall days. And otherwise saving as aforesaid hee
cannot depose.

To the tenth hee saith it is usuall for merchants and factors to protest
against a master (hired by the month) for not obeying their orders
and saith a charterpartie may evince breach of contract by neglect of
them where especially where a shipp is hired by the moneth for
shee may sometimes come to places where there is neither factor nor
merchants to pass upon or look to her managing her voyage, and
otherwise he cannot answer.

To the eleventh hee saith it is usuall for factors of freighters who
have not goods enough of their principalls to lade aboard, to suffer
other men to supplie their tonnage, and the master is bound to take the
same in aswell as the freighter goods unless he have order or covenant
to the contrary, his orders and covenant herein being to his [XXXXX]
.and otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 12th hee saith that a shipp may and must staye a longer or
shorter time before shee begin to steeve or take in woolls according to
winde and weather and according to the readiness or unreadiness of
her goods; and in case shee doe not very good provision for steeving
she may stay as longe againe as shee and need otherwise to do about
her [?weeke] yet oftentimes something may breake or faile and cause
delay and otherwise hee cannot answer.

To the 13th that sometimes some galls came not good from Aleppo, namely
there will be some badd amongst the good sometimes, but this
deponent had alwaies those that were good, and this deponent never
took in nor know any galls or cottons taken in inor either the places
Interrate without weight and the master or purser or some other for
the master is bound to see to the weight, for hee must deliver them
by weight and otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 14th hee saith the bagge will breake and teare as steeving and
lading and unlading of cottons and gawles and the gaweles well [?must] in
weight in starting, which the owners must make good, and the masters
or owners of shipps must now adayes mend or cause the sacke to be
mended, which in this deponents time of sailing was donne by the merchants,
And further he cannot answer.

To the 15th hee saith hee was never at Porto fferara, and therefore
cannot answer to this Interrogatorie

To the 16th negatively, for the weighers are bound to weigh indifferently
and the masters or some for their use to see that they doe soe.
