the sayd Woods and those few of the shipps Company that were sent
to assiste him were fitting the said ffish to goe on board and then
turne about with the longboate to the windewards againe without
offereing their helpe and assistance in ffitting the sayd fish to be carried
on board And further hee cannot depose not knowing how the sayd
Grove the Master imployed those of the shipps company who remayned
aboard whether in picking Okum or otherwise nor heard what
words passed betwixt the sayd Woods and the sayd master touching his
sending soe few on shoare to helpe to lade the sayd ffish./

To the 12th and 13th articles hee saith that about the one and twentith
day of August 1657 arlate the arlate Luke Woods having bin on shoare
in Newfound land came aboard the Peace with a shallop and brought
with him two boates to fetch salt from aboard her which some
persons on shoare had bought of him, and being come on board
asked the Boatswaine for the sayd Grove the Master, and the Boatswaine
anwered and sayd hee was in his Cabbin, and (as this deponent beleeveth
by the ensueing passages) the sayd Woods there desyred him to give order to his company
to deliver to the sayd boates their ladeings of salt, And saith the
sayd Grove the Master in a great rage came out of his Cabbin and
rann upon the deck, and swore that hee would sinke that boate that
should come there for any salt and the sayd Woods seeing him in such
a rage and furie followed him upon the deck and in a mild manner
entreated and perswaded him to deliver the sayd salt to the sayd
baotes and told him it would bee a great discredit to him the sayd
Wiid in his trade at Newfound land if the sayd boates or the
men on board them should be wronged, and the salt not delivered
whereat the sayd Grove the Master was more enraged and called
the sayd Woods Old Roague and other reproachfull bnames and
holding up his fist to the sayd Woods face sayd thus or the like
in effect if you (speaking to the sayd Woods) were not an old Roague
I would drubb you and further sayd (speaking to the sayd Woods)
you old Roague you were in the hold the other day but if ever I
see you in hold againe I will hoyst you up with a tackle, or words
to the like effect And all those words and passages hee saith were
soe done and spoken upon the open deck in presence of this deponent
and the Boatswaine and others of the sayd shipps Company and was
spoken by the sayd Master in such a lowde and outragio[us GUTTER]
manner that after this deponent went a shoare severall people whoe were
on shoare told this deponent that they were amazed to see and
heare as they stood on shoare such uncivill behaviour and words
given by one that was Master of a shipp to one that was his
Merchant or Supracargo and an anchient man, And further
to those articles hee cannot depose./

To the 14th hee saith hee well remembreth that soone after the sayd
uncivill words and carriage of the sayd Grove the Master, the sayd
Wood being (as hee beleeveth) much discontented thereat went on shoare
