in the beginning of the moneth of August 1657 the weather for ?some
dayes continued fowle and foggie soe that certyne fish which the arlate
Luke Woods at Newfound land provided to be laden aboard the Peace by way
of the fowle and foggie weather, (it being very preiudiciall to lade fish
aboard a shipp there unlesse in fayre and cleare weather) could not be laden And saith that upon
the fifteenth day of August 1657 the weather proveing fayre and very fitt
and convenient to lade fish aboard in, the arlate Luke Wood and Mr Tizard
called early in the morning for the marriners of the Peace who were
aboarde (there being then ashoare only about tenn or twelve Mariners of her company
who constantly continewed a shoare there to helpe to prepare fish in a
readinesse to be laden aboard) to come on shoare with their boats
and assiste in ladeing the fish which was prepared in a readinesse
aboard the sayd shipp while the weather was fayer, (but how many kintalls
were then prepared hee knoweth not hee being seldome on shoare by reason
of his office of Boat swaine) And saith that the arlate Thomas Grove
did upon such the sayd Woods and Tizards calling for men to assiste them
send some men ashoare (beside those which used constantly to be on shoare),
but how many hee remembreth not) And kept this deponent and the part of the Company
aboard and imployed them to pick Okum for
the Carpenter to use about the sayd shipp And saith hee remembreth not
how many kintalls of fish were laden aboard the sayd shipp that day
but beleeveth that if more men had bin sent a shoare more fish
might have bin laden aboard the sayd shipp that day than was
laden aboard her And further to these articles hee cannot depose./

To the 12th and 13th articles hee saith that about the one and twentieth day of August
1657 arlate the sayd Luke Woods having bin on shoare came aboard the Peace and
brought with him two boates to fetch salt from aboard the sayd shipp
for some persons who had bought the same of him and being
Come aboard asked this deponent being Boatswaine for Thomas
Grove the Master and this deponent told the sayd Wood that the
Master was in his Cabbin whereupon the sayd Wood went into the
Cabbin and spakeing with the Master and (as hee beleeveth by the
passages which afterwards happened betwixt them) desyred the sayd
Grove the Master to give order to his Company to deliver out
and lade those boates with salt And hee saith that after the sayd Woods
and the Master had bin a while togeather in the Cabbin they came
both out upon the deck and the sayd Grove seemed to bee much
enraged and sayd there should bee noe salt delivered into the sayd
boates till hee gott more ballast aboard And the sayd Woods
desyring the sayd Grove in a mild manner that hee would lett
the sayd boates be laden with salt and told him it would be a
disparragement to him the sayd Wood in his trade at the Newfound
land if the men who came with the sayd boates for salt which hee
had sold should be turned away without receaving the same and
that the men would be much hindered in looseing their
time in their other imployments to make any more iournies for it
