To the first árticle of theis said allegation hee saith and deposeth That
hee well knoweth the arlate John harris and Laurence Chambers
and alsoe well knew the shipp the little George arlate, and saith that
within the time arlate the said harris and Chambers were imployers
of her, and for such commonly accompted, which hee knoweth because
hee this deponent delivered them goods of the proceeds of their cargoe
therein the voyage in question, and at their request was a witnesse for
them as freighters against her owners for her insufficiency; which future
was depending in this Court.

To the second, third, fourth, fifth and 6th articles hee saith and deposeth
that the said ship the said voyage being at the Barbadas, this deponent
being requested by Christofer Mitchell her master, and Nathaniell horne

for the said freighters, and being contracted with by them to that purpose,
hee this deponent in or about the beginning of October 1648 imbarqued
himselfe in her and thence went in her for the coast of Barbary
and touched at Antego for supplie of mariners, and saith that in
the said shipps course from Antego for the coast of Barbary namely
in or about the beginning of November 1648 the said Christofer Mitchell
the master died, and Arthur Coysgardner (who was his mate)
succeeded him in the said master shipp, and then the arlate Christofer
Neck (who was commonly accompted the said Mitchells servant and was
to that time boatswaine of the said shipp) was made masters mate; and
in his place of boatswaine, William Peters (another of the said
Mitchells servants) suceeded, who to the time served in the
said shipp as Coxon or a common man. And saith the said Neck while
hee was boatswaine deserved thirtie shillings per moneth for his
service in the said shipp in the said qualitie, and three pounds per month
as masters mate, and the said Peters in the qualitie hee served before
hee was boatswaine deserved twenty shillings per moneth, and
after hee was boatswaine thirtie shillings per moneth, and to this
deponents remembrance Nathaniell horne the factor aforesaid said and
acknowledged the to this deponent that the said Peters was shipped

at thirtie shillings per moneth, the said Coysgardner as mate at
three pounds per moneth, and that the said Mitchell the master
sailed at the wages of five pounds per moneth, and soe much
this deponent (who is well acquainted with sailing and serving
in the like voyage and with the wages of mariners for the same) saith
they all well deserved; And saith the said shipp came and traded on
the coast of Barbary and thence to the coast of Spaine, where
in or about September 1649 (and after this deponent had bin
