performe her sayd voyage and saith in this deponents Judgement and
estimate the sayd shipp and her tackle apparrell and furniture to her belonging
at such tyme as shee sett sayle from New England were well worth five hundred

with very tempestious and stormy weather at sea and when the sayd
shipp was about a hundred and fifty leagues to the Eastward of New
ffound land there happened such stormy and tempestious weather that by
the force thereof her head was broken downe and her timbers from
the mayne mast to the head broken smooth to the deck, and her smale
bower Anchor carried cleere away from her bowe and one of her
hatches (although well caulked and nayled) was broken up and
shee thereat shipped much water betweene decks soe that this
deponent and others were knee deepe in water, and shee was soe shattered in
her hull that some of her plankes and seames started and gave way
whereat shee alsoe receaved much water in hold in soe much that
thereby shee became insufficient to performe her voyage and
this deponent and Company had much to doe with great labour
at the pumpe to keepe her safe from perishing and by reason
shee was soe damnified this deponent and Company were constreyned

well knoweth that all or the
most part of the sayd two thousand hydes were at Southampton landed
and dried and this deponent did observe that about five hundred
of them were very much damnified by wett and were rotten and
torne: but in respect hee hath noe skill in the Commoditie to know
what they were worth before they receaved the dammage hee cannot
estimate the sayd dammage And hee saith that after the sayd hydes
were soe dryed some of them (but how many hee knoweth not) were
shipped in a vessell for ffrance And further to this Interrogatorie hee
cannot answere./
