Company of the Recoverie and asked them What cheere howe,
whereto the Master of the Recoverie replyed and sayd wee have a
very leakie shipp, and desyred the sayd Croford to come on board
the Recoverie; whereto the sayd Croford replyed I cannot come, come
you aboard of mee, whereupon the sayd Bartlett Master of the Recovery
caused his skiff to bee hoisted out and therewith went aboard the sayd
Crofords shipp, but what conference they had togeather hee knoweth
not for that hee this deponent continued aboard the Recoverie, but
saith that after a while two of the sayd Crofords company (whereof one
was the sayd Crofords Mate) came with the sayd Bartlett aboard the
Recoverie to view the leakes and Condition of the sayd shipp Recovery
and did view and search the same, and upon view thereof did in
presence and hearing of this deponent and others of the Recoveries
Company advise the sayd Bartlett to beare up for some of
the neerest Islands, before hee were too farr gone from
them, and did in presence of this deponent and others whose names
are subscribed as wittnesses thereto give a testimoniall under
their hands that in their Judgment the sayd shipp Recovery was
soe leakie that shee was insufficient to proceede home for
England without being amended, which testimoniall being made
the sayd Crofords two men went aboard their owne shipp againe,
and then the sayd Bartletts men thereupon urged the Master to
beare up for the first Christian shoare they could make to whereto the Master
replyed whether would you have mee goe, and the shipps Company then

Leeward Islands, (meaning as hee beleeveth Antego or some other of the Leeward
Islands) that wee may repayre our shipp and save our lives and
ladeing or to that effect, whereto the sayd Bartlett answered thus or
to the like effect noe, wee will make for Bermudas, whereto
the shipps company replyed to this effecte, Bermudas is a dangerous
place now in Winter tyme to get in at if the shipp would hold out soe
farr, and wee are soe warye with continuall pumpeing that wee
cannot hold out soe farr, whereto the sayd Bartlet replyed and sayed
then I will goe for new England where I am acquainted, and if I
can reach thither I shall there fitt my shipp, whereupon the shipps
Company considering the length of the voyage thither (it being about
sixe or eight hundred leagues thither) and the insufficiencie of the sayd
shipp and her rigging to brooke for soe longe a voyage in the winter tyme
and the dangerousnesse of that coast sayd they might as well venter to goe to Old England as to goe thither,
and therefore they would make to the first land they could come at,
and thereupon the sayd Bartlett seeing that the company were not
willing to adventure their lives in the sayd shipp soe farr as to tho[se GUTTER]
