topp sayle to be lowered, whereto the sayd Grove answered and sayd
noe, I hope not, and ordered the foretopsaile to be hoisted againe
that soe the Peace might beare up under the ffrench shipps Sterne, but
the Peace was then gotten soe neere the ffrench shipp that there was not
roome for the Peace to beare up under her sterne, by which ??endeavour

of ladeing doth and may appeare and saith that hee hath heard the arlate
Robert Grove one of the Mates of the Peace who had formerly bin at the
Barbados, saye that hee did advise the Master Thomas Grove to keepe
a more Easterly course than hee did and that the sayd Thomas thereupon
answered him the sayd Robert Grove and sayd hee should not watch him to
finde the Barbados for he could tell well enough here to finde it
though hee had not bin there yet, and soe the sayd Thomas
Grove holding on his course did not of this deponents sight and knowledge come with his shipp into the
due latitude for the Barbados but in steade of gaining the Barbados
made the Islands of Saint Lusea and upon the eighth day of
November 1657 arrived with the Pease at Nevis And further to
this arle hee cannot depose

abroad swore that if hee layd them upon him the sayd Woods hee
would teare him in peeces and sayd alsoe that if the sayd Woods
was not an olde Roague hee would drubb him that hee should not be
able to help him selfe And further to this article hee cannot depose
for that hee this deponent rose from supper and was gone off of the deck before
