in Company togeather at the sayd Wood house in Newfound Land

To the 18th hee saith hee cannot depose not being present at the tyme
and place arlate./

To the 19th article hee saith that about the twenty eighth day of 7:ber
1657 in the morning the Master and Company of the Peace espied three shipps
which at a distance they thought to be some shipps bound for the Barbados
as the Peace was, and bearing up to them the Master and Company of the Peace
knew the shipp they came up with to bee a banker that came out in company
with the Peace from Nants And saith that what perswasion the sayd Thomas
Grove the Master used to the effect arlate hee knoweth not but knoweth that
Luke Woods did in Company of Robert Grave one of the sayd Thomas
Groves Mates goe aboard the sayd ffrench shipp which soe came from Nants
in Company of the Peace, and then sent the boate they went in back againe
aboard the Peace, and the sayd boate being come the sayd shipp the Peace stood
away from the sayd other shipp about halfe a league and then steered
and stood to the windewards of the sayd other shipp and by that meanes
came her aboard in the quarter and thereby much endangered the losse
of both the sayd shipps in soe much that the ffrench men aboard the
sayd ffrench ship seeing the danger their shipp was in rann all (save
one that was sick aboard her) aboard the Peace to secure their lives
leaving the arlate Luke Woods aboard the sayd ffrench shipp who with
much difficulty and the helpe of one of the Company of the Peace
who caught hold of the sayd Wood (as hee hung by the head of
the Peace) to preserve him from falling into the Sea) gott at length
on board the Peace All which hee saith was done by order and
Command of the sayd Thomas Grove the Master of the Peace
although this deponent seeing him order such a course to be
steered expressed his dislike thereof and told the sayd Grove the Master when hee came somewhat
neere the sayd ffrench shipp that hee soe by the Course that
was steered that hee the sayd Grove would come fowle in deede
could not goe cleere of the sayd ffrench shipp And further to this
arle hee cannot depose

To the 20th hee saith that the sayd Shipp Peace was from the Newfound
land bound for the Barbados and saith that of his this
deponents observation and knowledge the sayd Grove never brought
the sayd shipp into her due latitude to sayle for the Barbadoes, but
by the coarse hee kept did misse the Barbados
and made Saint Lusea arlate and about the eighth
of November 1657 arrived with the shipp Peace at Mevis arlate
And further to this article hee cannot depose not knowing what particular
order the sayd Wood gave the sayd Grove the Master touching her goeing
to the Barbadoes or what discourse passed betwixt the sayd Woods and
the sayd Thomas Grove the Master and her mates touching the steering of
the Course for the said Barbadoes or what answeare the sayd Groves made
them about the same./:
