they goeing together into a tap house to drinke a cup of beare

to which hee made answer that hee the said boatswaine by the said
Masters order got carts from Captaine Swanley from Stepney
to carry the said goods to Captaine Swanleys warehouse there
and that the thether they were carried accordingly. And this deponent
going to seize the said goods at Captain Swanleys, and

assisted in unloading the said goods out of the carts into the said
Captane Swanleys warehouse, and this deponent having
