To the 6th article of the sayd allegation hee saith that when the sayd shipp arrived
in dublin harbour hee knoweth that the ffactors of the sayd Jefferies
and Lewellin had not provided any such number of servants as the
sayd Jefferies and Lewellin had promised should bee ready, but had only
provided a very smale number to about twelve or thirteene servants [INSERTION MARK]



And the sayd Moulson after his comming thither was forced to doe his
best endeavour (that hee might the sooner bee fitt to depart thense) to gaine
as many more servants as hee could for the sayd Jefferyes and Lew=
ellin and by his care and endeavour did get thirty and odd servants more
for Accompt of the sayd Jefferies and Lewellin soe that with those servants
gotten by the sayd Lewellin and Jefferies ffactor there, there was about
three and fifty servants procured for Accompt of the sayd Jefferies and
Lewellin to goe the sayd voyage, two of which servants (being men and part of those soe released out off prison as aforesayd) rann
away with the sayd shipps skiff before the sayd shipp went from dublin, and
an other (who was an old woman) was suspected by the whole company
to bee a Witch, and it was much feared that shee
might prove very preiudiciall to the voyage (for that as the report
then went at dublin shee had bin shipped aboard an other shipp to
bee transported either to Virginia or Barbados or some of those west
India Islands and that the company of that shipp had turned her
on shoare againe upon the like suspition) and therefore shee was by
consent of the whole company of the Unitie turned ashoare againe
in dublin roade soe that there were agreedd only about fifty servants aboard And further to this article hee cannot depose/

To the 7th hee saith that hee being one of the sayd shipps Company
the voyage aforesayd knoweth that there were many deales (but the
certaine number hee knoweth not) cut out and imployed while the Unitie laye in
the harbour of dublin and afterwards in the voyage in question to make
Cabbins and Bulke heads and other conveniencies for the servants
passengers in the sayd shipp the sayd voyage And this deponent saith
that soe farr as hee could or did observe the arlate Moulson did not
use any of the sayd deales for his owne private use And further hee
cannot depose./

To the 8th and 9th articles of the sayd allegation hee saith that hee this deponent
being one of the sayd shipps Company and an eye wittnesse knoweth that
the sayd Moulson having receaved the sayd servants on board did with the
first oportunitie of winds and weather (which happened in the month
of September one thousand sixe hundred fifty fower and about
the two and twentith day thereof) sett sayle from dublin harbour bound for
Virginia but was forced back into dublin harbour by contrary winds
And the winde againe proving fayre the sayd Moulson sett
sayle thense twice more and was by fowle weather both tymes driven
back againe to dublin harbour and about the fowerth of October [XX GUTTER]
after sett out thense the fowerth tyme and steered his course then for
Virginia but the next day in the morning {a} great gale of winde
happened which made the sea very rough and tempestious in soe much
that the Boatswaine of the Unitie was washed cleere over board and perished
in the Sea, and hee this deponent had much a doe to escape being washed
