To the 13th hee saith that at first it was demanded that the master (which
they alwaies understood to be this deponent) and the other officers by him before mentioned
should according to custome come ashore, but afterwards the said marchant John
Maria Basso (perceiving them backwards) sent this deponent a letter advising
that if hee only came with any two of his mariners ashore it should
serve [?twice], for soe hee had prepared the busines with the officers there, and
otherwise negatively.

To the 14th hee saith that the said ketcher not being there taken notice
of at all to be master, was never required to come ashore, but it was
this deponent was looked upon as master and was invited ashore as aforesaid,
and this deponent holds it fit and lawfull to goe ashore with the officers
aforesaid where the custome requires it if they receive pratique, though
in an enemies countrey, whether way is soe made that they come not
as enemies but as friends as here it was, And otherwise hee cannot
answer saving as aforesaid.

To the 15th hee saith that there were the Capitan del mara and
a master da Campo and five or six persons more in the boate
with the said John Maria Basso when hee came soe aboard
as aforesaid, and the reason whie this deponent went not ashore with
them in their boate, was because pratique not being grannted, they
could not receive him aboard as aforesaid, and hee the said Basso
[?directly] exhorted them to come ashore and told them they should surely
have pratique, but showed not any order or license, it being frivolous
to imagine hee should, till they had bin ashore and satisfied the officers
touching their health and otherwise according to the custome of the place.

To the 16th hee saith that the very last time of all when they came to
an anchor severall of the mariners were willing and (soe declared) to
put ashore with this deponent in their boate, onloy they asked the said
ketcher if hee would secure them, And otherwise hee cannot answer saving
as aforesaid.

To the 17 hee saith that if the said ketcher had donn and suffered to be
donne what hee might with safetie have donne, the outwards lading had
undoubtedly bin delivered at Oratava, and pratique there obtained,
but soe farr was hee from furthering it, that at last when this deponent
perswaded him that this deponent and two men might goe ashore, the
said ketcher said it was impossible, and indeed did not doe his best
endeavour, and that it was his fault that the busines miscarried, for
they might there have traded favourably.

To the 18 hee answereth negatively for his part

To the 19 hee saith hee conceiveth John Maria Basso to be of fourtie
yeares of age or thereabouts, and of grizled haire videlicet partly white and
partly black, but his stature hee cannot declare for hee saw him only sitting
in the boate and not upon his feete, and hee knew him to be hee, for that
hee brought and showed this deponent the same letter that this deponent
left ashore for him at the first time of this deponents going ashore as
foresaid, and gave the said letter back againe. And otherwise referred himselfe
to his foregoeing deposition and saving the same cannot answer.

To the 20th hee saith that the said Capitan Del mare perswaded them to come
ashore, and said that there was an English vessell trading at Garrachico
and the said Basso said that hee was to lade the said vessell at Garrachico
