goods which laye betweene decks and were most cumbersome and trouble
some to the hinderance of the preservation of the sayd shipp and the rest of her ladeing
were throwne over board and were lost and perished in the sea, which could
not bee avoided without the eminent hassard of the losse of the shipp and
all her ladeing and her Companyes and passengers lives And hee this deponent
