To the 8th that the weather was at the time interrate
thicke and misty, but he saith that (as he beleiveth) that

the channell, for some of the shipps Company
thought they had discovred land and bearing up
accordingly, the shipp fell into Severne, And further
he knoweth not to answere/

To the ninth he cannot (of his owne knowledge) answer for
that he did not heare the interrate Croford or his Mates
give any order for the weighing her anchor and carrying
her to Milford, and soe to London, But he saith he
did heare that the Captaine was desirous to goe with
the sayd shipp for London, and that therupon he this
Rendent did heare the said Marriners mutter against
going to London, And that upon good grounds (as
he conceiveth) aswell in respect of the leakines of
the sayd shipp as the scarcity of provisions, and alsoe
the danger of comming out of Aberdee without a pylott
as at that time she had none, And further he
cannot answere./

To the tenth interrogatory he answereth that he did not see
the sayd leake, but was told by the Bosen that it
was such a leake as would make any mans heart
ake to see it, And further he cannot answere./

To the 11th he knoweth not to answere./

To the 12th he knoweth not to answere.

To the 13th he answereth that (to his best remembrance)
there were about sixe days between the sayd

some fresh provisions were brought aboard her And
further he cannot answere.

The last Interrogatory concerneth him not the Rendent
