gage them upon such their landing, and found that to the quantitie of three
and twenty pipes (saving thirtie [?XXXX]) of the said oiles were leaked out of the
caskes of oile brought hence in the said shipp, and was credibly informed by
such as had bin aboard, that such leakines happened by ill stowage, and by
reason that some of the casekes were stowed amongst salt without convenient
bedds, by the unskilfulnes or neglect of the master and
company, and soe it appeared to this deponent for that the caskes were otherwise as hee saith
strong and good. and further deposeth not.
