her company of this deponents sight did pumpe her while shee was in
harbour a hundred and odd strokes every halfe hower
and alsoe before shee went out of harbour caused a thing called a dredge
made with roapes and Okam to be made and stretched under her
the better to stopp her leakes and went to sea therewith, and saith
that after the sayd shipps were put out in Company to sea, upon
the sayd Nynteenth day of November at night fowle weather
happened, by meanes whereof (the Recoveries rigging being badd
and rotten and shee leaky before shee came out) her mayne mast had
was cracked and severall of her sayles splitt and severall of her
shroudes broken, and shee grew thereby more and more leakie, in
soe much that the sayd Tawley and others aforenamed and
the rest of her Company with the assistance alsoe of this deponent who wrought
for his passage, had much a doe with continuall labour at the pumpe
to keepe her above water, and in order to the better coming at her
leakes to stopp them as well as for the present they could, the Master and
Company heaved overboard a parcell of ffustick, but not withstanding
all they could doe, the sayd shipp continued soe leakie that her company
were faine to keepe the pumpe continually goeing, and soe kept
the same goeing severall dayes togeather, in which tyme the shipp
Gilbert coming sometymes within a pretty distance of the Recovery
Mr Croford Commander of the Gilbert did severall tymes call out to
the sayd Bartlett and aske him what cheere howe, and the like, and
was answered by the sayd Bartlett, that his shipp (meaning the
Recovery) was a very leakie shipp, whereupon the sayd Croford
replyed and sayd you were best therefore to beare up in tyme before
you bee to farr gone from the Islands (meaning the Islands that lay
to the leewards) which notwithstanding the sayd Bartlett kept on his
Course with the shipp Recovery and followed the sayd
Crofords shipp severall dayes, by which meanes the sayd shipps
Company by their Continuall labour at the pumpe were very much
wearied and spent and complayned to the sayd Bartlett that they
were soe wearied with continuall pumpeing that they were not able
to hold out, and desyred him to beare up for some of the Islands
that they might there stopp their leakes and preserve the shipp and goods
and their lives, which notwithstanding the sayd Bartlett still continued
on his course after the Gilbert, but at length the sayd Bartlett
wanting candles and other necessaries, went with his longe boate
aboard the Gilbert, but what discourse hee had there with the sayd
Croford hee knoweth not for that hee went not with him, but saith that
the sayd bartlett after a while returned from aboard the Gilbert
and brought with him aboard the Recovery some oyle to burne for light and and nayles
