continued very tight and staunche and receaved soe little water as that the [same GUTTER]
was usually cleered by the pumpe with makeing use thereof only once a [XXXX GUTTER]
which is a thinge usuall for shipps companyes to doe in those hott countries [XXXX GUTTER]
shipps by reason of the heate will unavoidably take in some water
Though they be never soe staunche, and are apter to take in water when they [XXX GUTTER]
then otherwise by reason that with the weight of their ladeing the upper parts of the [XXX GUTTER]
which are subiect to the heate of the sunne before being laden are afterwards [by the GUTTER]
weight of the ladeing brought under water, which is the cause that a shipp then [XXX GUTTER]
be never soe tight weill in those hott Countries take some water, but hee thiis deponent
well knoweth for that hee sawe the stoweing of all her ladeing and helped to
stowe the same that the sayd shipp never tooke in soe much any water during all her
stay at the Barbados as anyway to preiudice her ladeing, waht water shee

and ill weather And further hee cannot depose./

To the 3: 4th and 5th articles of the sayd allegation hee saith hee this deponent

Company and passengers in her weare in great feare that they and her lading
all perish by the sinkeing of the shipp and soe violent the storme was that the
shipps workeing and labouring in the sea caused her seames to open (as shipps
in great tempests will ususally doe) soe that thereby the shipp became [very leakie GUTTER]
and tooke in much water in hold and the storme was soe violent that the GUTTER]
winde kept the sayd shipp downe in the water on the starboard side soe that the
