the shipp without takeing those hogsheads of his with them) that hee could
not take them aboard for the reason aforesayd and soe they remayned

aboard as shee could well carrie, and that if hee should take any
more goods aboard then what hee had before they came jee must bee
forced if hee mett with stormie weather or Enemyes in his passage for
England to heave them overboard and therefore desyred the sayd Bellinger
not to put them aboard or to that effect which notwithstanding the sayd
Bellinger told the sayd Croford that hee must needes take them aboard
and should take them and that if they came to any dammage thereby hee
the sayd Bellinger would bee contracted to beare the losse thereof or
words to that effect This hee deposeth being present and hearing the same
spoken And well knowing that the sayd shipp was fully laden before
the sayd hogsheads came to be laden aboard her for that to satisfie
