Imployers of the shipp the Jonathan arlate, and that they sent her
out on a merchandizing voyage to the parts of East India, and thence
to retourne for England in their service and for their account. And saith that
within the said time the said shipp Jonathan in a peaceable manner
was trading in the said parts and going from the Coast of Cormandel with
a cargazon of goods and merchandizes there taken in to be landed and
deposed at Bantam (for which place most of the said lading was proper and
purposely provided) for the account of the said Imployers, and
the said goods were at Bantam to be invested in other goods for the
proffit and advantage of the said freighters, The premisses hee
deposeth for that hee was commander of the said vessell and went from
place to place in her the said voyage.

neare the Iland of Pulliapanjam some foure or five leagues distant from

did the next morning weigh to goe in, but the boate of a dutch shipp
that had kept the Jonathan company from the Straight of Sunda comming
aboard the Jonathan, and the master of the said dutch shipp comming up
unto the Jonathan and understanding her designe and endeavour to goe into
Bantam, told this deponent and Mr [?dacres] his precontest and others of
the Jonathans company that theu neither must nor should goe into Bantam
and that his shipp amd the other dutch shipps (being [?XX XXX] in number and
there riding) lay there purposely to himder any shipps from going in
and that they had order from their Generall to that purpose, Howbeit
this deponent and others telling him they were bound in and would endeavour
to goe in upon their trading imployment, and steering on accordingly to goe
in, the said dutch master called out to his company aboard his said shipp to
fire at the Jonathan, which the said dutch shipp did accordingly. And then
the said master commanded them to goe to the Admirall of the said
Squadron of the said dutch shipps (which were ins ervice of the dutch East India
company), which the Jonathan did accordingly and came to an anchor neere
unto the Admirall, and this deponent not being well, the said Mr dacres
accompanied with Samuel Wright this deponents mate, went aboard the said
Admirall, and after retourning aboard the Jonathan the said [?such ?persons] told this deponent [?that]
hee had [?perswaded] the said Admirall to let their said shipp goe in, and had
acquainted him with the sickness of her [?XXX], and with their greate want of
refreshment, and how greate a dammage would be to his Imployers
to be kept from going in, and that the said Admirall would not yeeld upon
any termes that they should goe in, but had expressely forbidden them
and told them that if they attempted to goe in, hee would sinck them [?or
take them. And thereupon the said Mr dacres upon a consultation drew up
