ánd drew her athwart the chaine that was neere her, and
the lillies company were thereby forced to cut their cable to goe cleere
of the Princes anchor, yet such was the negligence of the Princes master
and company, that albeit the said Betts (after hee had fastened his
shipp to the said chaine) went aboard to admonish the master and
company of the Prince of their undue riding, and danger they put
his shipp and loading in, besides the dammage they had alreadie donne
her, they let her come againe fowle of the lillie, and then putting
the lillie in greate danger, the lillies master and company fearing the chaines should give way, were forced to cut
their cable againe, and hall her up to her former mooring, where
the Prince comming that againe fowle of her, the master and company
of the lillie were the third time forced to cut their cables, and that
they were forced with her ashore whereby shee tore her false keele
namely seaven foote thereof or thereabouts was torne off. Of which undue mooring
of the Prince (being moored head and sterne in the river river (sic))
hee and one of the ill behaviour therein of her master and company, hee saith that
seamen and water men generally cried out, and called to and admonished
them thereof. The premisses hee deposeth being one of the white
lillies company and then aboard her, and seeing the said premisses
soe donne and happen.

To the 6th hee saith that by reason of the said shipp the Princes
lying in or sich a dangerous and undue manner and comming fowle of
the lilles, the said mr Betts was necessitated to hire men to assist
his company to remove and new moore his shipp from time to
time to avoide greater dammages, and to worke hard him selfe
therein, and paid them greate wages, and was at greate charges
and expense there abouts, and the same and other dammage came and
happened by reason of the said shipp the Prince her coming fowle
of and endangering her as aforesaid. Which hee knoweth being p[resent]
and seeing the said premisses soe happen. And otherwise hee cannot
depose, not being able as hee saith to estimate the
value of the said dammage.

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith hee was a foremast man of and in the said
shipp lillie the time aforesaid, and was aboard her all the time
when the dammage happened, and soe soe was the said Betts the master
or for the most part thereof, and foure or five or soe more of his company,
besides hired men some at one time and some at another, And
otherwise hee referreth himselfe to his foregoeing deposition.

To the second hee saith hee favoureth the truth and would give the
victory according thereto, and beleeveth the said Betts and company to
have a iust cause.

To the third hee saith the Lillies masts, sailes and rigging are of
a middle condition in respect of age, And otherwise hee cannot answer
not knowing the valew of the shipp.

To the 4th hee saith it is usuall for shipps to lie moored in the river
of Thames neere each other, but never to lie in the middle of the River
moored head and sterne as the Prince did, at which every one [XXXXX]
[XXXXX]. And otherwise hee cannot answer, saving cables [?XXXX] sometimes
thwart each other.

To the fifth and 6 hee saith the bolt bolt spritt of the lillie which was fast
comming against the Prince, was cleared, and otherwise cannot answer them
as aforesaid, saving the Prince was very unduely moored.

Repeated with his precontest before doctor Godolphin.
