her goods and the lives of her Company and passengers hee would make for
the next port that could bee gotten to but the sayd Moulson being desyrous
still to goe to Virginia if possible did still stope his course thitherwards
and the storme still continueing and the company being much wearied
with pumpeing they did at length threaten the sayd Moulson to nyale
him up in his Cabbin of hee would not alter his course and
make for some other port whoch they might gaine with more safety
than to Virginia Where and sayd they would themselves carrie
her to some other port neerer hand whereupon the sayd Moulson seeing
1his Company and the passengers soe desyrous to make to the next port
they could conveniently gett to and knowing that they were unskillfull
to get to any port did saye that hee knew their unskillfullnesse to
bring her to any port and that therefore hee was contented to alter his
course though hee had a great desyre to have gone to Virginia, and

stormes as shee was, were not there to bee gotten to fitt her for her
voyage to Virginia, And further hee cannot depose for that hee was

of the sayd shipps company did certifie under their hands the
insufficiencies of the sayd shipp to proceede on her voyage to Virginia
