the sayd humfrey fosse the boatswaine an severall others
of the sayd shipps company did refuse to take the sayd goods aboard
soe that the boates that brought them were fayne to depart with

rest of the shipps Company the better to perswade the shipps
Company to goe for Brazeele freely offer to advance the
