To the seventh hee saith that some certaine dayes (how many hee knoweth
not) after such going out of the desire, the storme being over, shee retourned
and upon her retourne into the said roade, this deponent saw the boate of the
Alexander (which was retourned before her) rowing up and downe with [?mate GUTTER]
therein to seeke their said buoy, and soe to find their cables and anchors
but by the meanes aforesaid, they could not finde them, the said cables and
anchors being sunck through want of the said buoy which the desire had
cut away, and all the premisses hee saith happened on the high and
open sea. And further hee cannot depose.

To the eighth hee cannot depose.

Upon the rest not examined by direction.

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith hee was spoken to by the owners of Captaine Cornelis
his shipp the Alexander aforesaid to come and testifie what hee knew in
this business, and being spoken to and [?warned] by the officer of this Court
who gave him a ticket in writing for his appearance, and saith his wages are
paid him for the said voyage and service in the desire whereof hee was a
foremast man, and hath not bin promised nor hath received nor expecteth
ought for his deposition, and otherwise referreth him selfe to his foregoeing deposition.

To the second hee saith that the said shipp desire alsoe rode by two cables
and anchors in the said roade, which anchors came home as aforesaid, and
after fastening to the said s[?lipp] of the Alexander, the
desires cable and anchors were haled up and the anchors fastened to
her bow, and soe preserved, but before this happened, the said shipp the

desire had lost one anchor by fowle ground in the said roade where shee
ridd, namely her best bower with part of
the cable thereof, and afterwards upon her said restourne into the said roade
(after the said taking away the Alexanders buoy) shee lost
her sheate anchor, by fowle ground, which cut the cable in peeces,
and afterwards a small bower by the same meanes, and saith the sea was
soe deep where the sheate anchor was [XXst], that the buoy rope and
buoy were drawne both under water, and soe breaking,
the ship drove and the cable and anchors were lost, And saith that it was
in a mooneshine night that the said buoy was cut away and that the desire
stood off to sea from the Alexanders cables and anchors as aforesaid; And
for the rest hee referreth him selfe to his foregoeing deposition and cannot further depose
saving the same

To the third hee saith the said buoy-rope was soe cut by the said Colquite
himselfe with a small ax of this deponents sight the night aforesaid
and saith there were many other shipps in the said roade the time
aforesaid, but the said Colquite alone cut off the said buoy, and soe
was occasion of the said losse, being thereto constrained by fowle weather
which was soe violent that hee durst not ride by the said fast through feare
of driving ashore. And otherwise referreth himselfe to his foregoeing deposition

To the 4th hee answereth negatively for his part, and otherwise hee
cannot depose, saving that the said Colquite and one hance Petterson one
of his company having bin one day aboard another shipp [?dXXXXX?s], and
comming both distempered and much overtaken with drink aboard and
falling and the said hance upon provocation giving bad language to the said
Colquite the master, the said Colquite in revenge brought him to the Capstan
and punished him.

Repeated before doctor Godolphin.
