[GUTTER XXXX] of the said ffernandez and company.

The answer of the said John Lopez to the Interrogatories. [INDENTED TO RH SIDE]

To the first hee saith hee was Cape merchant of the said shipp as
aforesaid and when shee was in the West Indias, appeared Commander of her
for the reasons aforesaid and was in her when shee came to Milford haven, but
came not about thense in her to this port; And saith hee is a batchelour and
hath noe familie, and (saving when hee hath bin voyaging at sea) hath lived for
the most part of theise six yeares in and about this citie, whense hee hath bin
imployed as a factor for Marchants thereof, And hath noe share or interest in
the shipp or goods in question, nor any relation by kindred or otherwise to the producents,
otherwise than by being imployed and trusted by them for the management of this
voyage, which hee hath faithfully performed (as hee saith) according to the said
trust reposed in him; That hee is a Spanaird by nation, borne in Cadiz
in the Realme of Spaine.

To the second Interrogatorie hee saith and deposeth that hee was present at
the buying of the said shipp the Hope and of the goods of her outward voyage
that were bought at Amsterdam and saw the same paid for by mr Tilly
and mr Chanterwell, and hee was present at the buying of most of those
that were soe provided here and sent hense, and saw the payment therefore
by mr ffernandez and mr Page, who paid alsoe for the rest here bought.
And saith that there were noe goods for the account of the said Imployers carried
out in the said shipp then what are mentioned in the schedule interrogated, but
for Jeromo Otto, Patrick Betts and others of the shipp, hee saith they had goods
aboard which are not therein mentioned, they not concerning this deponent
who kept the account for the Imployers; And otherwise negatively saving
his foregoeing deposition to which hee referrs.

To the third hee saith that the said shipp and outward cargo were bought and
provided upon and for the ioynt account of all the said claimers, and the said
homewards lading belongs unto them upon ioynt account, and to be shared
by and amongest them according to each mans stock and proportion, and
if any part of the said homewards lading had bin left or miscarried, such losse had
fallen upon them all, and was to have bin borne according to each mans said
stock and proportion.

To the fourth hee saith that in case the said shipp had bin ordered to have
carried and had carried the said homewards cargo to Amsterdam there would
benefit as hee conceiveth have redounded to this Commonwealth, in regard
that diverse of the subiects thereof were therein concerned and were to have
the most of the proffit of the said cargo, as being therein most interessed; and
might probably have invested the proceede of such their interest in other
marchandizes and im[?ported] the same, and soe have brought immediate advantage
to this Commonwealth; And saith the said John Chanterwell and John Tilly
being friends of this Commonwealth and the said Tilly a subiect thereof,
hee conceiveth their oarts in the said goods if they had bin brought in hether,
would have bin in noe danger of confiscation, noe more than the parts of
mr Page and the other English would have bin at Amsterdam, in case of going
in thether. And otherwise hee cannot answer.

To the 5th hee cannot answer.

To the 6th hee cannot answer for hee was not at Milford when the said
shipp was brought thense, but conceiveth that both shipp and ladeing were
then in possession of the officers of this State, in whose possession this
deponent left them upon his last comming thense.

To the seaventh hee saith that hee staid about two dayes aboard the said shipp
at Milford haven after her arivall there (by reason of badd weather) before
hee came ashore, but came not to the Thames in her from Milford haven;
And saith that the necessary utensills of plate and fowre or five peeces of eight
by him formerly deposed to be by him brought out of the said shipp to bneare
his charges thense to London, amounted to about eight or tenn pounds
sterling, and saving that hee brought noe other goods nor money out of the shipp
nor knoweth of any brought out by any other. And otherwise referreth himselfe to his
foregoeing deposition.
