To the seventh article of the sayd allegation saith and deposeth, that
upon the thirtyeth day of October 1652. and whilest the Hopewell lay by the
side of the Recovery, and before she could in any probability have taken in
all her lading and beene fitted for her homeward voyage, the arlate Prince
Rupert did come upon the Coast of Antego aforesayd very suddenly with the
shipp Swallow having about 44 gunnes, and another frigott of 10 or 12
gunnes both well manned, and did first seize the ffort of Antegoe, and
upon the same day seized and surprized the Hopewell and goodes in her
and the shipp Recovery allso and goods in her, And saith that in all humane
probability there could noy eyther by the sayd shipps Companie or the Islanders
or both have any resistance bene made to preserve the sayd shipps and their
lading or eyther of them from being so seized by the sayd Prince
Rupert the sayd Prince Rupert was then so strong, and the strength of the
sayd Island and shipps so small and inconsiderable. and otherwise he
cannot depose saving that he was an eyewitnesse of the premisses.

To the .8.th article he saith That Prince Rupert and his men stayd att Antego
from the Saturday to the Tuesday following and did in that tyme unlade
the Remaynder of the sugars and goods in the Recovery. and otherwise
cannot depose.

To the .9.th article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that the goods of the
Recovery were sugars in Casks and loose ginger, and the sayd goods
were as he saith troublesome and difficult to unlade, and many of the
heads of the sayd Casks in unlading and new stoweing them dropped
or fell out, by reason whereof the foresayd worke and employment of
lading the same into the Hopewell was much retarded. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the 10 and 11th Articles of the sayd Allegation This deponent saith and deposeth
that he heard it credibly reported some few dayes before the seizure of the
sayd shipp by Prince Rupert, that there was a Spanish vessell cast away
or shipwrackt neere to the Barboodas, and saith that the sayd Henry Powell
and some of his Company went to the Barboodas upon the sayd newes
or report. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 12th article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that the sayd Henry
Powell when he went to the Barboodas as aforesayd left about a dozen
men and 2 boyes to lade the Hopewell, and the sayd men so by him left did in his
absence diligently apply themselves to their worke in the lading of the
sayd shipp. And otherwise he cannot depose

To the .13th Article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that in case the sayd
Powell and all his Company had bene present att the tyme of the sayd seizure
they could not in this deponents Judgment in humane probability have [?preserved]
the sayd shipp the Hopewell from being taken by Prince Rupert, nor have
laded the sayd shipp with the goods of the Recovery so as she might have
bene gone from Antego before the sayd Prince came thither, which
he is firmly induced to beleive for that the sayd worke was too much and
difficult to be done by the sayd Powell and Company in so short a tyme, and
the sayd Powell and Company farr too weake to make any Resistance
against the sayd Prince. And otherwise he cannot depose

To the 14th article of the sayd allegation he saith that the sayd Captaine Powell did during
the tyme he stayd att Antego cause his men to apply themselves diligently to
their worke. And otherwise he cannot depose.
