hee knoweth and did observe were during the sayd voyage idle and
debauched fellowes and given to drinkeing and sweareing and did often tymes in
their drunckennesse drawe their knives one at an other and endeavour to doe
each other mischeife in soe much that the sayd Colquite was forced sometymes
to give milde correction for such their idlenesse and debauched behaviour and
neglect of their duty for which (as hee beleeveth) they did beare the sayd
Colquite mallice and hee this deponent hath heard the arlate hannse
Peterson and Robert Smith threaten to be revenged of the sayd Colquite when soever they
could have a convenient oportunitie And saith hee this deponent having
bin sevrall tymes aboard the Alexander did observe that most of her
Company were fflemings or dutchmen, and knoweth that the sayd
Colquite nor any of his Company did as aforesayd cut the bouy or
bouye roape of the Alexander and therefore beleeveth that the report of soe
doeing was invented by the sayd Peter Smith Hanse or Nanse Peterson
and Peter Hanse or some of them out of mallice to the sayd Colquite And by their
combination with the Master and Company of the Alexander: And hee
this deponent well remembreth that when the sayd Colquites Company
did cut their owne roape which they had made fast to the sayd slipp bouy
roape as aforesayd, they the sayd Smith Peterson and hanse were all
three of them much distempered with drinke in soe much that the sayd Smith
by reason of such his distemper lay a sleepe upon the deck of the desyre
and the sayd hanse Peterson by reason of such his distemper lay asleepe
at the doore of his Cabbin part of his body within the Cabbin and part
without and the sayd Peter Hanse was then a sleepe in his Cabbin by
reason of his sayd distemper, And such their being then distempered
and asleepe was not only observed and taken notice of by this deponent
but (as hee beleeveth by the rest of the Company of the desyre And
further hee cannot depose/

To the last hee saith his foregeoing deposition is true./

To the Interrogatories./ [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first Interrogatorie hee saith hee cometh to testifie at the request of
the producent Colquite And saith it will be neither profitt nor preiudice
to this deponent which soe ever of the parties litigant prevaile in this suite
And to the rest of the Interrogatorie hee answereth negatively./

To the 2 Interrogatorie hee saith he hath noe relation to the sayd Colquite
saving as hee was his boatswaine the voyage in question And to the
rest of the Interrogatorie hee answereth negatively./

To the 3 Interrogatorie hee saith hee was Boatswaine as aforesayd the whole voyage
in question, and was never from on board but twice during the sayd
shipps being at the Canaries, and those two tymes were in fayre
weather when there was noe occasion either of weighing or slipping
Anchors or cutting roapes and saith the Alexander ridd about a myle
distance from the desyre at the Canaries./

To the 4th Interrogatorie hee saith that the Alexander Interrate was of this deponents
sight forced from her Anchors at the Canaries as other shipps were
but whether shee cut any cable or left any Anchor behinde her when shee
put to sea or whether her company left a Bouy fastned to her
Anchor hee knoweth not, but knoweth it is usuall for the companyes of shipps that
trade to the Canaries soe to doe And further hee cannot answere/
