after that rate videlicet att 12000 Crownes the Portugalls themselves
did estimate and apprize her att Angola before she served as a man of warr aforesayd of this deponents knowledge
And further deposeth not.

To the 10th article he saith It is the Custome of Angola, for every master
of a shipp that takes in Negroes there to pay or engage to pay
the Kings Customes which he is to receive againe att Bahia
of the factors to whom the Negars are ćonsigned, and those Customes
doe arise to four millres per head for every peece of India
that is laden, and there were about 784 negars 917. Negars
laden att Angola for Portugall Aććcompt as aforesayd, but how many
peices of India the same did make he knoweth not ćertainly,
but by the proportion of his this deponents owne negers 24 of
which made 16 peeces of India, he ćonceyveth the sayd
917 negers might amount to about 700 peices of India so as
the Royall Customes due for the same might amount to two
thousand eight hundred millres or thereabouts, And he doth
beleive that the sayd Captaine Hurdidge did exther pay or give good
engagement to pay the sayd Customes before he ćame from
Angola, and was to have received the same att Bahia, but could
not so receyve the same, for that all things there belonging to the
English were seized upon as aforesayd. the premisses he deposeth
to be in manner aforesayd having made diligent enquiry there
and well observed the Custome and manner of those transactions
And further deposeth not.

To the 11th. article he saith there were of this deponents sight laden
att Bahia in the sayd shipp to be transported to Lisbon the severall
goods following att the freight and averidge hereafter sett forth
to say. 940 Cloths and 61 fetches of sugar at 26. millres
per tonne of 54. aroves. and 160 Rees for every [?roafe] for averidge
and 500. Rolls of tobaććo, and five barrells of sucketts, and
216. great plankes and 17 peeces of Jaćaranda wood, the
freight of all which together with the freight and averidge
of the sayd sugars so neere as this deponent ćan estimate the
same according to the publicke bills for freights and averidge
of goods sett forth att Bahia would and did amount to fourteene
thousand three hundred seventy five millres, the benefit
whereof had it not bene for the sayd seizure would have [?redounded]
to the Owners of the sayd shipp. And further deposeth not.

To the 12th article he saith that whilst the sayd shipp lay att Bahia
as aforesayd there was of this deponents sight faire plenty of sugar and so few shipps to transport
it that severall persons who had hired tonnage in the sayd shipp off
and from the Provador or Governour of Bahia did lett out their
sayd tonnage so hired to others and receyved two millres for the
place of each Chest in the tonnage so lett which benefit might
possibly have come to the sayd ffrancis Hurdidge in case he had had
full power of his shipp. and the said ffrancis saith he might have
made 1400 millres proffitt therby. And further deposeth not
