aboard, the which request of theirs the said dutch [?XXXXing] [?Daniell]
this deponent fell to intreate them leave to enter
or goe in, telling them (as the truth was) that thay had diverse sick and
weake persons aboard, and that there was greate necessitie of their going
in thither [?both] for fresh victualls and refreshment for their sick
and to [?performe] their trading designe, and the dutch still persisting
in their deniall, the Jonathan endeavoured to put in, whereupon [?XXXX] of
the dutch shipps shott at her, and commanded the
master of the Jonathan and this deponent the marchant to come aboard
threatning to sinck them if they gave not speedie obedience to such [?command]
whereupon this deponent (the master being sick) went aboard to the
Admirall and told him and modestly expostulated with him the necessitie
of their going in, howbeit the said Admirall (named daniell Peterson [?van]
[?Lely]) expressely forbadd their going in,a nd told this deponent that
if they would not be content, but would still persist in their endeavours
to goe in to Bantam, hee would take them prisoners, and would
sinck their shipp or to the same effect, and this deponent thereupon
desiring him to give him a note in writing, prporting such his
deniall and prohibition, that therewith this deponent and the
master and company might be excused by their principalls, the said
Admirall denied that alsoe. Whereupon seeing noe possibilitie
of getting in, being soe prohibited, the said master and company
were constrained to depart with the said shipp and lading, and to goe
to other places to which they were not designed and for which their goods
were not proper and there to barter and truck the said goods away
at a very low rate, to the greate losse of the said producents in respect
of what theyw ould have yeelded had they bin carried
to Bantam, and thereby alsoe forced to leave moneyes at Bantam
to the summe of three thousand pounds sterling which shee should there have received (which was readie) for her lading and
making her voyage withall. All which hee knoweth for the reasons

To the tenth article hee saith that by such prohibition and hindrance
by the dutch as aforesaid, the said shipps voyage was almost quite
[?frustrated] to the very greate dammage and losse of the said producents
who have as hee saith and verily beleeveth, suffered losse and
dammage thereby to the summe of six thousand pounds sterling, and
soe much more hee beleeveth the produce of the said voyage would
have bin more than were made in case such interruption and
prohibition had not bin given and made by the said dutch And
further hee cannot depose.



The fourteenth of ffebruary 1658. [CENTRE HEADING]

Examined upon the foresaid allegation.
