hang or hitch in the tackling of other shipps, and saith that in case thae
White lillies company had taken in her [?iarb] staff (as was donne to most other
shipps, and is usually on the weeke dayes or working dayes) there would noe hurt
or dammage at all have happened to the White lilly, whose bolt spritt came
against the Princes sterne on a working or worke day, all which hee knoweth
having used the sea about 25 yeeres, and being present aboard the Prinse as

To the seavanth article hee saith an deposeth that during all such time
as the said shipps the White lillie and the Prinse soe lay together, the Prinse
did not soe much as breake one cord or rope yarne of the White lilly
nor drive her from her moorings, and during the said time, the White
Lilly was very carelessly, slightly and loosely moored, in such manner as was
not fitting for her to lie; which the Prinses company seeing, they moored her
both ahead and asterne to prevvant such dammage ás might happen
by reason of such loose and slight mooring of the White lilly, which by
her soe lying, tooke up more roome in the river than three or foure
shipps that were well moored would have donne. And that the lilly by soe
lying was very apt in her turning and swingeing to and againe by the turne
of the tide by reason of her loose mooring, to come fowle of other
vessells that lay well moored. yeelding a reason of his knowledge as

To the eighth hee saith that the White lillies company drew her
or haled the White lilly of up to the chaine alate, and that
shee was not by the Prinse forced a thwart or fowle of the chaine.

To the nineth hee saith that the White lillie had discharged and
delivered out her lading before shee cutt her cable, and when
shee cutt shee was removing from her moorings to moore neerer the shore
and they might (if they had bin pleased) have avoided such cutting
their cable, for the Princes company manned out their boate when
the lillies company were weighing their anchor, and assisted the
White lillies company in such weighing, and clearing the same
from the Prinses cable, and while the companies of both shipps
were soe clearing the White lillies anchor, the white lillies
boatswaine called out to the Prinses company and bade them cut the
White lillies cable, which they (seeing noe neede for soe
doeing) refused, and answered that if hee or his fellowes had any
minde to have it cut, they might doe it them selves, or to the same effect
whereupon the said boatswaine presently cut the same asunder himselfe
which this deponent saith needed not have bin done, for that the
anchor and might and would suddenly have bin cleared without doe such
cutting, but the white lillies company were carelesse and negligent. All
which hee knoweth being present and seeing the same.

To the eleaventh hee saith the lillies companie soe cut their cable
neere or close to the ring thereof, and where the same was very much
worne, as cables in that place use to be, soe that the said
cable was by the said cutting little or nothing damnified, it being
as hee saith usuall for shipps upon each voyage to cutt
off their cable at the rings, to make new fasts. And saith the said
company of the lillie soe cutting close by the ring, did not loose above
