as ought to yeild obsedience thereto might take notice thereof, and the

did prepare and had prepared in a readinesse great store of good
ballast which was kept in lighters ready for such as had occasion to
use the same which notwithstanding Claes Johnson Master of the
hope of fflushing and his Company did after publication made to
