said shipp then heaved and sent above five foot high, soe as her boate
was not able to lie by her side, and by meanes of the said fowle
weather and violense of the sea, after all the care, labour and
industrie of the company (which hee saith they improved to the utmost)
hee the said ropes breaking the said wines sunck and were lost
all saving one butt, for the recovery of which wines soe sunck
hee saith the company used all diligence with creeping, grapnells
and sweeping with roapes, but could not recover any of them.
The premisses hee deposeth of his owne sight and knowledge. And
cannot otherwise depose.

To the seaventh hee saith the said Robert Whitby himselfe bought the
ropes wherewith the said wines were strung and rafted of this deponents
sight and knowledge, this deponent waiting on him therein, and carrying
the said ropes (after mr whitby had bought them) to the water side: and
saith the sad ropes were broken with the extraordinary roughnesse
and violense of the sea, and saith the said wines were lost by being
carried in such rough and tempestuous weather (which was donne in
obediense to mr whitbys command) and not by any default or
neglect of or in the shipps company, who hee saith used their utmost
diligence and endeavour for the preservation thereof.

To the eighth hee saith that the sea comming in soe fast and
running soe high the said afternoone, it was noe way fit to goe
off with any wines, insoemuch that other merchants who had laded
wines in the morning and had more to lade aboard other shipps,
(as the Olive branch arlate and others) commanded the boates to goe
and retourne that afternoone aboard their severall shipps without
carrying any wines, in regard of the impetuousnesse of the seas and
and danger of carrying any aboard. All which hee knoweth being
present and taking notice of the premisses. And otherwise hee cannot
depose, saving as aforesaid.

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