Wright and Company ágainst}

Exámined upon the fore said allegation.

Rp: 2

John Harford of Wapping in the County of Middlesex
Mariner, aged 48 yeares or thereabouts sworne and

To the firsth article of the said allegation hee saith and deposeth that hee this
deponent the voyage in question was one of the company of the shipp
the ffriendshipp arlate and went to Mallega in her where shee safely
arived and came to an anchor about three miles from the [?towne] out
of command of the Artillery, and that in the moneth
of October last (the day hee doth not precisely remember) Barnaby
Holding the master of the said shipp sent her boate ashoare about six
of the clock in the morning well manned according to the order of the
arlate Mr Whetby who as factor for the said shipps lading there; and
the said boate in conformitie to his Mr Whitbies command attended upon him in expectation
to have had a raft of wine to be carried aboard the said shipp the said
forenoone, the weather being then good and the sea calme, soe as the
said Mr Whitby sent off wine the same forenoone to other shipps,
all which hee knoweth being one of the said shipps company and
going in the said boate and seeing the premisses soe donne. And otherwise
hee cannot depose.

To the sixth hee saith the said Mr Whitby did neglect to send, (at least

clock in the afternoone of the same day, hee commanded thee men to
(whereof this deponent was one) to cast off his butts of wine to be
carried aboard the ffriendshipp, but the Levant breeze comming then in
and the sea running very high, the said master seeing the same, sent out his
skiff with six oares, to command the men that were attending with
their boate to come on board and not to meddle with any wines, in
regard of the danger, the sea comming in soe fast and high; howbeit
hee saith the said whitby commnaded them to stay and to proceede
in rafting off the wines, which when some of the company denied, the
said whitby said hee had much wines upon the Play, and they
must raft it off that night; whereupon at his command they went
on to raft off thirtie peeces, and endeavoured to towe them aboard to
give him content, but the sea comming in very violently, the ropes
were torne in peeces, and alsoe the emptie buts that were to buoy up
the said raft of wines, and the said raft and emptie butts were twice
broken loose before by the said violence of the sea, before the
company could bring the raft within a mile of the shipp, and that
after much tugging and rowing, it was about tenn of the clock
at night before the said company could get aboard, albeit that
there came severall boates to their aide and assistance. And saith the
