put aboard the shipp Catherine by one Mr Angelo of Genoa twenty seaven butts of
oyle (how man tonnes they centeyned or the rate agreed upon the freight hee knoweth not)
to bee transported thense to London and there deivered to the arlate Bonnell or his Agents and the
same oyles being laden the sayd shipp departed therewith and arrived safely at
London with the sayd oyles in the moneth of August last, and there delivered them to the
Agents of the sayd Bonnell who disposed thereof this hee deposeth of his
owne sight and knowledge being Mate aboard the sayd shipp And further
to those articles hee cannot depose saving hee saith that the freight of a tonne of
oyle from Vado to London is usually when at the lowest rates three pound sand some tymes three pounds tenn shillings
sterling and hee this deponent hath knowne such rates
paid for freight of a tonne of oyle to London./

To the 5th and 6th articles hee saith that for that hee helped both to stowe
and to unlade the sayd oyles hee hee (sic) knoweth that they were well stowed bedded and
Coyned according to the Custome of the sea and that whatever leakeage happened
was by the insufficiencie of the Caske which as appeared by them were made of
greene unseasoned wood and thereby shranke when they came to be dry stowed
upon the Orlopp deck with only a little loose hempe and some few boxes or chests of
lemmons over them, and not through any want of good stowage or default of
the Master and Company of the Catherine or of the sayd shipp And the stowage of the
sayd oyle being surveyed at debtford before the delivery thereof by two able Seamen
Masters of Shipps they did upon view thereof declare before this deponent and
others of the sayd shipps company that the sayd twenty seaven butts of oyle were
very well and sufficiently stowed and that what dammage was happened unto
them was occasioned by the insufficiencie and badnesse of the Caske and
by noe other meanes And further saving heis subsequent deposition hee
cannot depose/

To the 7th that the sayd shipp and oyles in her being arrived at London
the arlate John Collins a Cooper by order (as hee sayd) from the sayd
Bonnell came aboard the sayd shipp to view the Caske wherein the sayd Oyles
were and to see in what condition they were And upon view of them the sayd
Cooper did finde them to be very leakie yet did before this deponent and his
precontest William Smith and others acknowledge that the caske was well stowed
and that the cause of their leakinesse was meerely in the Caske for that they
were greene and by that meanes had shrunke and desyred this depinent
and the rest of the company to put the Butts aboard lighters which came
to receave them and told them that hee would give and did accordingly
give a noate under his hand expressing that the sayd Butts were
well stowed and that the cause of their leakinesse was only the baddnesse
of the Caske or to that effect And this deponent remembreth that upon the
sayd Coopers view of them panns and basons were put under the heads of such
of the butts as could bee come at to receave the oyle which leaked from them
which pannes and basons the next morning when the Cooper came againe neere
