not beleeving it to be true for that hee heard the sayd Gosling since his returne from
the voyage in question saye that if hee had not bin designed
for Bell Sound hee would have wrought further into the Ice
as this deponent did and that if hee had bin soe farr in as this
deponent was, hee would not have doubted to (if hee could not
than gott into Bell Sound) to have gott into Greene harbour for
that (as hee sayd) the very Current or indraught would have
carried a shipp into Greene habour./

To the 10th hee saith that after this deponent with the Owners Ad=
venture and Greyhound was gott to sea againe and in Company
of the aforesayd fowrer London shipps, hee was parted from their
company by the extraordinary foggie weather, and stresse of
winde, and after hee had lost their company and the stormie weather
was over, this deponent came in with the land to southward of
Bell Point and to the edge of the Ice, and caused his Company
to worke to worke her in about three or foure myles, and having
soe done the ice beginning to prove thick this deponent went up in
the shrowdesto the top mast head to discover what probability hee
could see of getting to harbour and came downe againe and the sayd Maundrie and Gosling
came up of afterwards went up to take view alsoe and called to this
deponent to come up againe and told this deponent that the Ice was
soe thick that it was impossible to gett into harbour and that
that stormie weather had noe whit removed it but that it laye
like a wall towards shoare and that they would bee hanged if any
shipps did gett into Greeneland that yeare and these premisses were
soe spoken and done about the tenth day of July 1656 whereupon this
deponent seeing their unwillingnesse to worke to harbour and
with all seeing the Ice thick towards shoare no likelyhood to
gett in, did put out to sea againe, and the killed a whale
at sea on the backside of the Ice and afterwards videlicet about the
eighteenth or 19th of the sayd month of July 1656 this deponent
seeing noe hopes to get into any harbour to the Southward or North
ward, did goe about Point Lookeout, and sayled Eastwards
hopeing to gaine ducks Cove, which hee knew at that tyme of the yeare used
to bee a good harbour for fishing if hee could gett in, but found
it soe full of Ice that hee could not gett in there neither, in which
East sea this deponent mett with two dutch shipps and being
envited aboard by the Master of one of them who sent his shallopp
for him this deponent, hee returned answere that hee would come
on board him in his this deponents owne shallopp which accordingly
hee did the dutch lyeing soe neere that this deponent made [XXX GUTTER]
a warpe or roape from his owne shipp to the
dutch shipp during the tyme hee stayed aboard the dutch shipp
which was about two or three howers and not above, and did not
any way thereby hurt or hinder his voyage, in the least, it being
then thick foggie weather and they lyeing within three or foweer myles
of the Ice and saith the Company of the Owners Adventure
