To the 3 Interrogatorie hee saith that the tyme Interrogate there were ?three
other English shipps besude the Scipio at Lisbone which were
offered imployment for the Brazeele and did goe upon the same And
saith as aforesayd that most of the Company of the Scipio did
refuse to goe the voyage for Brazeele without they might have their
wages first agreed on augmented And hee beleeveth that the sayd
Ewans was necessitated to promise the sayd augmentation by
reason his Company redused to goe to Brazeele without augmentation
of wages and as hee beleeveth would not have proceeded thereon in case
the sayd Ewans had not promised the sayd augmentation/

To the 4th hee answereth negatively for his part

To the 5th hee saith the rate that dollers went for at Lisbon the
tyme interr was sixe shillings per doller and hee this deponent
for his part receaved of the Interrate Ewens sixty dollers and a
halfe for his wages then and there being then due to him
eight moneths wages, but what others received hee knoweth
not but saith there was then about eight moneths wages due to every
one of the sayd shipp Scipio her company And saith the dolleres hee
receaved as aforesayd hee receaved at the rate of fower and sixe pence [a GUTTER]
doller but this deponent noe way forced the sayd Ewens to pay him
the sayd dollers at that rate, there being noe words or difference
betweene the sayd Ewens and this deponent either touching the
goeing the voyage to Brazeele or the rate of the dollers but the
sayd Ewens voluntarily paid then to him at that rate of 4:s - 6:d
knowing this deponents wages due amounted to soe much And
further hee cannot answere./

To the 6th hee saith hee is paid all his wages for the voyage in question according to an [arbi= ?GUTTER]
?tration made betweene the sayd Ewens and this deponent thereabout
soe that hee intendeth noe suite against Ewens whosoever prevaileth
in this cause And to the rest negatively for his part And further
cannot answere/

To the 7th hee saith the sayd ffosse did of this deponents knowledge
desert or leave the shipp Scipio at Lisbone before her goods
were all unladen, and soe left her as hee
beleeveth without the good likeing of the sayd Ewens And further
to this Interrogatorie hee cannot answere./

To the 8th hee saith hee never heard that any of the Companyes of
the other English shipps that went the sayd Brazeele Voyage in Company
of the Scipio had any encrease of pay And further hee cannot answere

Repeated before doctor Godolphin/
