And saith the said Tye did in this deponents presence and hearing
tell severall of the said ships Company that hee did verily beleive
that the said Company in the said Boate Did goe about to betray them and
that it was a meere Cheate, or to that Purpose:/- And further
hee cannot depose./.

To the 13th and 14th hee saith and deposeth that in Confirmation
that there was some designe to ?betray Surprize and seize the said ship lading

the Road of Oratava the said ketcher and Company thinking
