made for the Leeward Islands, which the sayd Bartlett seeing sayd,
doe what you will, I will take noe more charge of the shipp
or words to that effect, and soe went to his cabbin and stayed there
two or three dayes pretending him selfe to bee sick, and after two or
three dayes came upon deck againe, and tooke upon
him the steerage of the sayd shipp till shee came to Antego where
shee safely arrived with her ladeing it being one of the
neerest places to them And saith that after they were
come to Antego and had stayed there some tyme to repayre the leakes
aforesayd and Careene the sayd shipp and fitt the shipp with tackle and such necessary rigging as shee
wanted, her provisions were almost spent, and shee was faine to hav
a supply of Bread from a Bristoll shipp there, and to procure beefe
porke pease and the like of a new England shipp which was then there
and before which supplyes victualls were soe scearce among
the shipps Company that they were faine to goe in the night tyme and
looke Crabbes which breede in the woods, to susteyne their necessities,
And further to these articles hee cannot depose saving hee saith that
after the arrivall of the sayd shipp at Antego her Company did by
order of the sayd Bartlett there unlade her goods brought thither./

To the 7th article and the schedule therein mentioned hee saith for that

Antego, to the Governor there, and was present, hee knoweth that the sayd
Bartlett did make a protest before the sayd Governour against the sea and
of the insufficiencie of the shipp Recovery by reason of the sayd storme and did exhibit before the sayd
Governour the testimonialls or certificate made by the sayd Crawfords men
upon their view made of the sayd shipp at sea, and did desyre of the
sayd Governour a Commission for others to view her, which the sayd
Governour graunted, and shee was accordingly viewed by virtue of that
Commission (after her goods were unladen at Antego) in presence of this
deponent and divers others of the sayd shipps Company, And further hee
cannot depose of his certayne knowledge, but beleeveth that the schedule
arlate is a true coppy of all the proceedings arlate had at Antego
and was and is subscribed with the hand writing of the sayd Governours
Secretary there as hee beleeveth./
