which the sayd Wood had bought and provided a shoare could not be shipped
untill a fayer day happened And saith that a fayer day happening in the sayd
moneth (the certayne day of the moneth it soe happened to be fayer he remem

Masters Mate of the Peace) called early in the morning for the Mariners of
the sayd shipp to goe a shoare with their boates to assiste in carrying

sayd Grove the Master sent sixe men on shoare and not more to helpe to lade
the sayd ffish (whereas there were seaven and twenty men and boyes belonging
to the sayd shipp beside the Master, five and twenty whereof were under
pay of the sayd Woods and other the Owners above mentioned) and kept the
rest of the Mariners on board the sayd shipp and imployed them to pick Okum

the sayd Grove sent to helpe him could and did lade aboard the sayd
shipp only one hundred and twenty kintalls of the sayd three hundred
Kintalls of ffish whereas if the sayd Wood had had more helpe
on shoare to assiste in ladeing the sayd ffish aboard and that the rest of the
shipps Company had not bin hindred from goeing a shoare to assiste
therein by the sayd Groves employing them to pick Okum the whole three

and the sayd Wood goeing into the Cabbin to desyre him (or by the sayd
Groves words afterwards appeared) to give order to his Company to [?deliver]
out the sayd boates ladeings of salt the sayd Grove came out of
his Cabbin and rann upon the deck of the sayd shipp Peace and swore
that he would sinke the boate that should come for any salt there and the
sayd Wood seeing the sayd Grove rage in such a furious manner did
in a milde manner desyre and entreate the sayed Grove not doe as hee
