Company espying two shipps (which were beleeved to be English) the Captaine
called out and commanded then all Spanish papers and clothes should be taken and
put downe in Hold, saying that if they be found, it will be ill for us
or to that effect, whereupon the papers were ffetched out of the powder ?where
to that time they had laine, and some of them were torne and throwne
over board and others thrust downe in Hold and hidd in the
h?iden part of the shipp, and the Spaniards clothes and persons put

and this deponent tooke them and but them betweene his doublet and
body at his breast, and afterwards this deponent put them in the
drawer or under a table in the cabbin, and there left them. And saith

the seizure, nor knoweth of any delivered by him to them. And further
hee cannot depose.

To the sixth hee saith hee never knew the said shipp the Hope till hee
