not take more roome with their said ship the Abgigail
nor keepe further aft (OR, off) of the Agreement nor put their Helme
a port, but (bearing to windward) put their Helme a

by the Company of the Agreement as aforesaid the said Lavezick

having all her sailes standing, and before the winde

to the said Ship the Agreement and glanced by her, and onely
touched her Bow and quarter, and having soe done came
round, and sailed towards the South Shore, and the Agreement
kept on her Course, and the Abigaile never touched the

that at the said time when the Abigail glanced by the Agreement
and touched her bowe and quarter as aforesaid the Abigaile was to windeward

to come foule of the Abigaile the said time, And saith that

would undoubtedly runne directly upon the Midships of
the Agreement and by that meanes sinke her and her Lading
Imediately: Which hee deposeth seeing the premisses And
further Deposeth not:
