to fight as he hath predeposed. and otherwise cannot depose.

To the tenth Interrogatorie this rendent saith that a shipp that halleth another shipp

all or most whereof was taken from them by Mr Harrison the master
of the Advantage frigott who pretended he would share it equally and
thereupon caused the same to be putt into the great Cabin of the Advantage
but what became thereof afterwards this deponent knoweth not but saith
that he this Rendent for his part never had any part or share thereof, nor
of any plate sylver moneyes or goods whatsoever, aboard the sayd
shipp the Golden Starr, And further he saith he cannot depose.
