shipp and goods at Mallega, but saith the said Browning did not come with his
sayd shipp and goods to Mallega, soe that this deponent never saw his sayd shipp
nor receaved any of the sayd goods though hee dayly expected them And saith
that the sayd Browning might have come to Mallega notwithstanding the difference
which was that yeare betwixt England and Spaine, (as of this deponents sight and
knowledge divers other English shipps did) and there have stayed with his
shipp and goods without Command of the Castle there, and have attended the
order and directions of this deponent or any other the sayd Bulkleys factors there,
which if hee had done, this deponent is well assured that hee could for a
smale gratuitie to the Governour and officers of the King of Spaine at Mallega
have soe ordered the matter that the sayd Browneing might notwithstanding
the sayd difference betweene England and Spaine have sent the sayd goods
hee brought from New England on shoare at Mallega to this deponent,
and this deponent could there have disposed of them, and laded him thense for
England with wine and fruites to the great advantage of the sayd Bulkley without danger of confiscation of the sayd
shipp or goods, this hee the better knoweth for that hee this deponent and other Merchants resident then at Mallega in the
monethes of October November and december 1655 did receave ladeing
there from on board severall English shipps, and
as the Lyon William Greene Master, The Olive Branch
John Brampton Master, the Jacob, Peter hales Master and alsoe
knoweth that severall other shipps were there safely unladen and reladen
there in that tyme by other English Merchants notwithstanding the sayd difference
betwixt England and Spaine, And further to those articles hee cannot depose

To the 7th and 8th hee cannot depose./

To the 9th hee saith that hee being then sufficient at Mallega knoweth that
the shipp the Culpepper (in which this deponent did by his factor lade Twenty
tonnes of goods at Valeo Mallega) did within the tyme arlate notwithstanding
the difference betwixt England and Spaine take in her full ladeing
of goods at Voleo Mallega, and safely arrived therewith in England to a
very beneficiall market, this hee the better knoweth, because as a foresayd
hee laded twenty tonne in her, and receaved advice of her safe arrivall
in England, And saith that of his this deponents sight and knowledge the arlate
shipp whereof the arlate Eustace Smith was Commander, did in the moneths
of October and November 1655 at Mallega and Marvelia notwithstanding the sayd difference
receave a ladeing of wynes and fruite, and depart therewith for England and (as
this deponent by advice hath heard) arrived safe therewith at London, and saith the
other shipps before in his deposition named, and many other English shipps, did
in the moneths in his foregoeing deposition expressed safely unlade and relade
at Mallega notwithstanding the difference aforesayd, and saith
hee knoweth of noe English shipps that arrived at Mallega about the tyme
arlate, that returned thense empty and this deponent is well assured that
had the sayd Browneing come verily with his shipp and ladeing to Mallega this deponent
could have safely unladed and reladed him for England as well as he did
the sayd other shipps And further to this article hee cannot depose.
