of her knees gave way and most of her beames wrought to and from
and the oakeham wrought out of her seames all which notwithstanding
the sayd Moulson being desyrous to gaine Virginia if possible still
continued his course thitherwards although the Mariners and alsoe
the passengers did advise him to alter his course and steere
for the next land hee could get to for preservation of the shipp
and goods and his and their lives and their advise not prevaileing with him
but hee still continueing his course for Virginia they at length
seeing their eminent danger they were in, both seamen and passengers
threatened the sayd Moulson to nayle him in his Cabbin and to
carry the shipp to the next convenient Port they could make to in
order to preserve the shipp and such goods as were not allready utterly
spoiled, and their lives, from persihing, whereupon the sayd Moulson
seeing that the storme still continewed and the great danger the shipp
and goods and their lives were in did cause the shipps helme to bee
borne up right before the winde and sea, in order to make for land
and caused the foresayle to be hoysed but before the same was
hoysed cleare up the violense of the winde blew it cleare away
And hee saith that by violense of the sayd storme and the store
of water that brake into the sayd shipp the sayd shipp
had at least five foote water in hold and the Company and passengers
wrought continually at the chayne pumpe to cleere her and with
much paines and difficulty brought her about the tenth of Janu=
ary 1654 English style to Antegoe which was the most convenient place they could
arrive at to save the sayd shipp and such goods as were not
utterly spoiled and their lives and saith that after they were soe come to
Antegoe the Company of the shipp did by reason of the leakiness of
the shipp occasioned by the stormie weather pumpe often, to preserve
as much as they could what goods was on board from further dammage
than what they had receaved at Sea this hee deposeth of his owne sight and
knowledge being aboard and one of the Company of the sayd shipp

To the 16th hee cannot depose not being present when the protest
arlate was made./

To the 17th hee saith that shortly after the arrivall of the sayd
shipp Unitie at Antego the sayd shipp was viewed by Captaine J[olley GUTTER]
and Captaine ffountayne Masters of shipps then there and by some
shipp Carpenters whose names hee remembreath not, and hee well
remembreth that hee heard some of them who soe viewed her saye
that shee was soe battered and spoiled that shee was not able
or fitt to goe to Sea nor to performe her voyage to Virginia
And saith hee beleevth the sayd view was made by the procurance
of the sayd Moulson and by authority from the Governour of Ante[go GUTTER]
but what certificate was made in writing thereupon hee knoweth
not, And further hee cannot depose,/
