in the sea and the winde was soe violent that it kept the shipp downe in
the water on the starr board side whereby shee shipped much water from

water came downe into her hold and preiudiced her goods, and by
reason shee laye soe one one syde the water could not come to the [XXX to GUTTER]

her of the water receaved in the sayd storme till the sayd storme was [over GUTTER]

in the sea thereby and {her} Master and Company were not able to [spoone GUTTER]
her before the sea but were forced to lye a hull under the sea soe [that GUTTER]
the sea often passed over her with great violence and brake into the
sayd shipp amongst her goods and could not bee prevented from soe
doing by all the Industrie that the Master and Company could use And
further saving his following deposition hee cannot depose./

To the 8th and 9th hee saith hee hath bin a mariner those twelve yeares last
and bin at Sea in many great stormes and thereby knoweth that [XXX GUTTER]

And hee this deponent verily beleeveth and is perswaded in his conscience
that what dammage is happened to the ladeing of the Trades Increase
the voyage in question happened meerely by the violence of the sayd
stormes and not through any default of her master and company
or any defect of the sayd shipp other then what the stormes aforesayd
occasioned, which dammage whi hee verily beleeveth would have [XXX GUTTER]
the stormes beingsoe violent though the sayd shipp had bin a new shipp
at her coming from the Barbadas And further hee cannot depose
