whatsoever that were torne, throwne overboard or any wayes made away, but came
all as hee verily beleeveth to the hands of the said Story and Stoakes being bills
of lading, Charter partia, factories, accounts and other papers and dispatches,
And otherwise saving his foregoeing deposition hee cannot answer.

To the seaventh hee saith hee for his part hath not since sold but still holdeth
and owneth his said eighth part of the said shipp, and soe still doe his said
partners as hee beleeveth, without having sold any part to any Spaniard
or fflandrian before or since the beginning of the said voyage, And saith that
having had a Burgundian flagg for five or sixe yeares in another shipp that hee
commanded before hee had the Santa Maria, hee kept it and had it aboard
the Santa Maria, and upon the said approach of the ffrench threw it (being
of the same sort videlicet White with a redd crosse that the fflanders shipps carry)
over board, when the said papers were soe throwne over board as aforesaid.
And othewise then as aforesaid hee cannot answer, saving that shee did not
carry the Spanish flagg or colours.

To the eighth hee saith that none of his company were Spaniards, nor was
there any Spaniard aboard when the said shipp was soe seized.

To the nineth hee saith the said shipp had eight and twenty peeces of ordnance
aboard when shee was soe seized, whereof twenty foure were iron and the
other fower brasse, and that shee is of the burthen of fourehundred tonnes
or thereabouts. And saith that this deponent had money peeces of plate (amounting in all to 252 markes and some odd a[?nn?ries])
for his owne account and had the said peeces of eight in money aboard the said
shipp when shee was seized, namely all such as are contained in a schedule
annexed to an allegation given in this Court in a claime of his owne, to which schedule
hee referreth himselfe, affirming the same to be true, and that the said John
Moller, had in plate severall peeces amounting in all to seaventie markes
three ann[?res] and a halfe an hundred peeces of eight and nine small barrs
of plate aboard for his account, all which money and plate of theirs and other
their goods mentioned in their respective claimes came as hee saith to the hands
and seizure of the said Story and Stoakes, who possessed themselves thereof,
detaining the same from this deponent and the said Moller to this present.
But there were not any Jewells aboard that hee knoweth of.

To the tenth hee saith hee signed the foresaid bills by him deposed of and not
any other for the goods soe laden and seized, nor any of severall tenors for the
same goods, and that hee hath not signed any for any of the goods since the said
seizure was made, and otherwise hee referreth himselfe to his foregoeing deposition.

To the eleaventh hee saith that the Santa Maria had noe license, nor is it
free for hollanders to trade in the Spanish West Indies without license, in
which regard they were constrained to purchase trade by force of money,
giving the President and officialls of Santa Domingo in moneys and presents
to the value of about fifteene thousand peeces of eight to obtaine trade there,
which upon that regard was permitted unto them, And otherwise saving as aforesaid hee cannot answer.

To the twelveth hee saith hee well knoweth all the owners interrogated, who
hee saith were owners at the time of the said shipps departure from
Amsterdam, and as hee beleeveth are soe still, and otherwise hee referreth
himselfe to his foregoeing deposition.

To the last hee saith hee did not sea the goods interrogated that were
for the claimers carried from Amsterdam in the said shipp bought or any of them paid for,
nor doth hee know that John Mexia da herera bought or paid for any
of them, but beleeveth hee did not pay for any of them, having but
very little money at his command, And further saving his foregoeing
deposition to which hee referreth hee cannot answer.
