was att the said forenoone of the same day very good and the sea
calme, soe that the said Mr Whitby might have sent off
very easily a raft of wines unto the said shipp the
ffreindship, as well as he did to the shipp the Maydenhead
which shipp did then alsoe lye in the said roade of Malligoe
The premisses he deposeth because he was at the time arlate
one of the sayd shipp the ffreindship her Company videlicet
Quarter Master of her, and soe knew the matters predeposed
to bee true, And further to that article he cannot depose

To the sixth article he deposeth and saith that the said Mr Whitby
neglecting to send any wines aboard the said shipp in that
forenoone the arlate Barnaby holding did send out in the
afternoone the skiffe belonging to the said shipp with six oares
(whereof this deponent was one) and a stiever, to fetch off the
long boate in regard the Sea was very high, but he saith
that the arlate Mr Whitby commanded those that were in the
boate and in the skiffe to raft off the wines arlate, and that
they that were in the said boate and skiffe were very unwilling
to meddle with the sayd wines, and acquainted the sayd Mr
Whitby with the great danger there was in medling with them
at that time in regard of the temepstiousnes and violence of
the Sea, but upon his threats and commands they went about it,
and that by that time they had rafted off thirty peeces of the
wines (for the said Whitby told them that they showld and
must raft off forty) they were forced away, and such was
the violence and tempetiousnes of the Sea , that notwithstanding
all the endeavoures of all those in the long boate, and skiffe
and of others who came in to their assistance that the ropes
were in peeces, and the empty butts that were to buoy up
the said raft of wines were twice broken loose, and that the
said shipp by reason of the then high sea did leane and sett
about five foote deepe, and that neither the said boate nor
skiffe were able to lye by the said shipps side, and that although
(all the care and diligense that possibly could was used by
those of the said shipps company that were in the boate and
skiffe and by others that came in to their helpe all the thirty
peices of wine except one butt were suncke, The premisses
he deposeth being one of the sixe Oares sent out in the said skiffe
by this said Master to give order to those sent before in the boate
not to meddle with any raft of wynes in soe dangerous a sea
and afterwards upon compulsion of the said Whitby working
in the rafting off of the said wynes; and soe knowing what hee
hath predeposed to bee true/ And farther he cannot depose./

To the seaventh he saith that the said Barnaby holding the Master
did not goe ashoare at all, and that the said ropes were bought by
the said Whitby, who was ashoare and that the said ropes were
broken by the violence of the Sea, And further he cannot depose.

To the eighth he deposeth that he being ashoare at Mallegoe about 3 of
the clock of the said twenty fifth of October 1655 did heare Mr
[?Grene] and others Merchants of the Olive Branch arlate give order
unto those that came with the said shipps Longboate for to fetch off
wines to the said shipp to returne without any wines in regard of
the then high Sea, And further he cannot depose.

Repeated before Doctor Godolphin./
