To the fourth article hee saith that the usuall expectation of
Merchants in freighting shipps from this port for Saint Sebastians
and Bilboa is to make their maine profitt in the
homewards freight thense, having little expectation of proffit out wards
and this hee saith is generally observed amongst merchants trading
betwixt London and those parts, and were it not for the homewards
proffit in freights to London from those parts, hee beleeveth there
would bee noe shipps freighted thense thither, for hee hath as hee
saith knowne severall shipps that have made but an hundred
or an hundred and fiftie pounds freight hens to Bilboa, but thense
to this port in their homeward voyage, have made some eight
hundred, some nine some a thousand pounds freight
and some more, All which hee soe knoweth having for sixe
yeares and upwards lived as a factor in Bilboa (about fifteene leagues from Saint Sebastians) and observed the
course and practice of Merchants in the use aforesaid, And further
that tenn shillings per tonne freight is usuall for the outwards
voyage thense, but the [?XXXX] freight is made homewards, and this
hee saith is publique and notorious. And otherwise hee cannot depose.
