faire and seasonable all the said forenoone; but betwixt two and
three of the clock in the afternoone of the same day, at which time
hee was ordering the men to raft of his wines, the Levant brease
comming in the sea ran very high, which when the said master sawe
hee sent his skiff ashore with six oares and a stearer to command
the men that were attending with their boat to come aboard and

and saith that this deponent having bin of aboard the
shipp, retourned in the said skiff when it was soe sent by the
master, and thereby knoweth that the mariners did their best endeavour when the wines were
rafted off, upon the command of the said whitby, to help to towe
the raft aboard the shipp, howbeit the sea falling in violently,
it tore the ropes in peeces, and the emptie buts that were to buoy
up the raft, soe that the said raft and emptie buts were twice broken
loose, before the company could bring the same within a mile of the
shipp, and saith it was about tenn of the clock at night before
the said company could get neere the said shipp, notwithstanding that
they had severall boates came to their aide. And saith the said shipp
did then heave and send above five foote high, and the boate not
able to lie by the shipps side, and that the company of the
ffriendshipp used all care and diligence that they could to save the
said wines, but the ropes breakeing the wines sunck and were
all lost save one but, and the company used all meanes by creeping
with grapnells and searching with ropes to recover the said wines that
were sunck but could not. All which hee knoweth being present and
seeing the same. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the seaventh hee saith that the said whitby himselfe bought
the ropes that the said wines were strung with and rafted with, and
saith the said wines were lost upon occasion of the said ropes breaking
by the said roughnesse of the sea, and mr whitbyes forcing
the company to carry them out in such fowle and rough weather,
and not by any default of or in the company, which hee knoweth for
the reasons aforesaid.

To the eighth hee saith that in very truth the sea came in soe fast
and sea so high the said 25th of October 1655 in the after noone
that it was noe way fitt to goe off with any wines, and the boat
of the Olive branch arlate and severall other who had carried wines
in the morning were by their merchants commanded to retourne and
did retourne and goe aboard without any wines by reason of the
said fowle weather and roughnesse of the sea, which hee
deposeth of his owne sight and knowledge. And otherwise hee
cannot depose.

Upon the rest hee is not exámined by direction of the producent.

Repeated in Court before the two Judges.
