To the eighth article of the sayd allon he … To the eighth article of the sayd allon he saith that the direct way to sayle from Zant<br />
to the Streights mouth is about four hundred leagues and so accounted; and to<br />
sayle from Zant first to Corsico or Leghorne and so to the Streights mouth<br />
is about four hundred eighty five leagues and so accounted which is eighty five<br />
leagues out of the way. And this he knoweth for the reasons aforesayd, And further<br />
he cannot depose, for that the Course from Corsica to the Streights is by Leghorne,<br />
and Leghorne not more out of the way in his judgment than Corsica is.
To the 9th article hee saith that according to the sayd computation, from Salina Road to<br />
sayle to Zant and there stopp and thence to Corsica or Leghorne and so to<br />
the streights mouth is about seven hundred forty six leagues, which is about<br />
one hundred and one leagues out of the direct Course from Ciprus to the<br />
Streights mouth, and so áccounted. And further refering himselfe to the reasons<br />
aforesayd he cannot depose.
To the .16. and 17th articles of the sayd allegation which concerne the steeving of woolls hee<br />

To the Crosse Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]
To the .1st. Interrogatorie he saith he comes to testify in this cause att the request of Mr Chowne<br />
and Capt Goodlad. and further otherwise than negatively hee cánnot depose.
To the second he saith hee cánnot depose, saving that he never was steeving<br />
the woolls att Ciprus.
To the third hee saith he never made Ciprus his last Port homewards, but hath bene<br />
there twice, and both tymes came to Zant having busines there, and order to goe<br />
thither. and he knoweth not that it is usuall for shipps bound from Ciprus to London<br />
to Touch att Zant unlesse they have order so to doe. And otherwise saving<br />
his foregoeing depositions hee cannot answer.
To the 4th. he saith he hath severall tymes seene the sayd shipp the ''Thomas Bonadven''<br />
''ture'' and she hath two deckes, and is in his judgment about two hundred<br />
and sixty or more Tonnes, And further cannot depose.
To the .5th: he saith he knoweth nothing thereof.
To the .6th. he saith it is usuall for shipps in the streights after they are ready<br />
to stay for Company a month or the like tyme by order of the principalls, and<br />
so this Rendent hath sometymes done, but not otherwise. And further otherwise<br />
than negatively he cannot answer.
To the 7th. he saith there is now way from Ciprus to England for a shipp but<br />
by the Streights mouth; and he beleiveth the ''Thomas Bonadventure'' came that<br />
way and any ship so coming, for England must sayle as the wind will permitt<br />
so as if the wind happen to be contrary espécially for any long tyme, as it<br />
sometymes happens, a shipp must of necessity either put into Port<br />
or if she sayle must goe out of her direct Course, some tymes one way some<br />
tymes another way to get advantage of winds, and by meanes thereof<br />
may happen to goe one hundred or more leagues out of the way. And<br />
otherwise he cánnot depose.
To the .8th. he saith that neither the Va[?re] nor Corsica, are in the way from Ciprus<br />
for England, and beleiveth that such a wind can scarce possibly happen as to<br />
make the passage by Corsica to be as quick a passage from Salina Road to the<br />
Streights mouth as the direct way is or as such a Course is as is usually sayled<br />
when the wind is not favorable, And otherwise he cannot answer.
To the .9th. he saith he never sayled directly from Salina Road to the Streights<br />
mouth. And further knoweth not nor can depose.
To the .10th. he saith It is usuall and often falls out that sactors doe protest<br />
against such masters of shipps as breake the orders of their freighters<br />
in not staying in Port, or departing from thence when they should; And further<br />
he cannot anwer not knowing what to conclude or beleive in the case interrogate
