howbeit hee saith the said Master how refused to help to save or protest
the said shipp and lading from the countrey people who were by this
time come downe in greate numbers. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the fifth hee saith that the said countrey people who were soe in
greate number come thither, (hearing the said mr howe with a loud
voice say that the whole shipp and lading were due to my lord of
Arundell and that hee seized upon all (or to that effect) they cried
out in a tumultous manner and said, if they were due to my lord of
Arundell they were due to them (or to the same effect) and therewithall
they fell in a tumultous furious manner aboard, and fell to pulling
cutting and hacking and wholly plundered tooke and carried away
away all the said shipps lading and goods, saving three or foure boates
lading oof the goods and sailes. And that the said people dispossessed
the said master and company of the said goods (saving what was in the
boates as aforesaid) and cut downe all the masts and rigging and
carried the same away alsoe, all which hee knoweth being present and
seeing the same, and seeing the master and company doe their best to
prevent the said spoile, and violence.

To the sixth hee saith hee beleeveth the such comming and speeches
of the said mr how, were and gave the occasion for the said people
soe to fall on and commit the said spoile and outrage, and that if
hee the said how had donne his endeavour and countenanced the master
and company, and opposed the said violence, hee beleeveth the same had not
bin committed, but the said shipp and goo goods or greater part thereof had bin preserved.

To the seaventh hee saith that hee dwelling a good distance from that place
and being but a stranger there, doth not knowe the names of any of the
persons that tooke away any of the goods, tackle, apparell, furniture
or hull of the said shipp, or that have since got any thereof into their
hands, saving (as hee hath heard) some Commissioners herein appointed,
have recovered part thereof, this deponent seeing some of the tobaccoe
and sailes in their the said Commissioners custodie. And otherwise
hee cannot as hee saith depose.
