To the fifth and 6th hee saith that some of the other foure hundred
toba Potaccoes of tobacco (not laden by or claimed by the producent)


were marked SL, and some AD but howe many of each, or
the other markes hee remembreth not, it being soe longe since
the lading, but for the markes of the tobaccoes claimed by the
producent hee referreth himselfe to his former deposition made
in this cause. And saith that all the markes were as
hee beleeveth very firmely sewed to the Potaccoes, and
such as hee tooke particular notice of were firmely sewed
and that if this deponent and company, or any other that
would have bin carefull in the unlading, had had the unlading
of the said tobaccoes, they would and could have preserved the
markes intire, and fixed on the tobaccoes, but probably
since the seizure and rummaging and tugging of them
without care, severall of the markes may have bin brokin
or torne of. And otherwise hee cannot depose saving as aforesaid.

To the last hee cannot answere saving as aforesaid.
