To the 13th article hee saith hee well knoweth the arlate John Tilley and
saith hee is commonly reputed an Irish man by birth, and to be living in holland
only as a merchant stranger and subiect of this Commonwealth, and further
deposeth not.

To the 14th hee saith hee alsoe well knoweth the arlate John Chanterwell
to be an Inhabitant and housekeeper with his wife children and familie in
Amsterdam, and for such and a subiect of the States of the United Netherlands
was and is commonly accounted and reputed, which hee knoweth having nin
severall times at his house there./

To the 15th hee saith that the said shipp and lading doe really and truely
belong to the said producents and noe other or others, albeit this deponent
for the securing of her and getting prattique in the said Spanish west Indias
gave out that shee was a Spanish shipp and with her lading belonged to this deponent a
Spaniard, and made entrie of her there for such, without which hee could
not there have traded but the said shipp and goods (had they bin knowne
not to be for Spaniards as indeed they were not) would have bin seized and confiscated, and such this deponents
avouching them to be for Spaniards account secured them there from,
and otherwise hee cannot depose saving as aforesaid.

To the 16th hee cannot depose, saving as aforesaid, and saving it is
notorious upon the Exchange London that the said shipp and goods
both outwards and homewards were for the said producents their account
and that shee was the said voyage in their sole imployment.

To the 17th hee saith that this deponent (saving such time as hee hath bin
at sea in voyages) hath lived in and about this citie for theise six yeares
last or thereabouts, and hath bin imployed by severall marchants of this

To the 18th and 19th hee saith that while the said shipp the said voyage was at
Comana, the arlate Simon To[?uson] Bleau came tattered, t[XXXX]. and
without shoes or stockings, almost starved and swelled miserably with
bitings of moskito's, aboard the said shipp and besought this deponent for
Gods sake to take pittie of him and save his life by receiving and giving
him food and letting him be aboard promising to doe what hee could,
whereupon this deponent in charitie and not out of expectation of any help
or service from him that was almost dead with hunger and misery, received
him aboard, where the said Simon shortly appeared to be a very lewd idle boy, given
to pilfering and stealing, picking of quarrells and doing mischeife by
stabbing men with his knife, which hee severall times endeavoured to doe,
and saith that being reprehended and corrected somtimes
by some of the company for such his intollerable lewdnes, and feareing
to be further chastised for his misdemeanors, hee at
Milford havenm ran away from the said shipp, and threatened this deponent
and the rest of the company, saying that they had better not [?to ?have ?medled]
with him, and that hee would be revenged of them, and that though the
divell should fetch him yet hee (to be revenged of them) would
sweare that the said shipp and goods belonged to Spaniards, and doe
whatsoever mischeife hee could doe therein, or words to the
same effect in the presence and hearing of this deponent Mr Betts: Mr Ayleward and some other of the said ships Company and
further deposeth not

To the twentieth hee saith that neither this deponent nor any other of the
company as hee beleeveth, tore, threw overboard or made any papers or
writings away in the said voyage that concerned the said shipp and lading
or either of them. And when this deponent saw any shipp neare, that
hee supposed to be Spanish, and feared to be boarded by them, hee hidd
the factorie of the goods aboard in the said shipp least they should finde it
(being the factorie hereunto mentioned) and in particular hee did soe
when being neare London in the way to Milford haven, hee espied two
vessells which hee deemed to be dunkirke men of warr, And
for such they were esteemed by the company. And further cannot depose,
saving as aforesaid and what followeth.
