did discover farr asterne of the sayd ffleet two shippes which afterwards
proved to be Hollands men of warr, and in the morning of thesayd Sunday
a private English man of warr came aboard this deponents shipp and plundered
and tooke from him 18. Ryx dollars in money two hundred and off weight
of Rope with his Cloathes and sea Instruments to the value of 10 li 10 s sterling
who upon discovery of an Ostender bringig with him a Portuguese prize
whom he tooke to be a Hollander fledd; And that the foresayd 2 shipps a
sterne as aforesayd continued all that day neere a dutch myle from the sayd
fleet, [?XXX] shich two English vessells comeing in the afternoone were
chaced by the sayd 2 shipps that proved afterwards to be Hollanders.
And moreover saith that the wind being the sayd Sunday night westerly the
foresayd ffleet made little way and the 2 Holland shipps upom the
Munday morning morning came upp with the sayd ffleet, and gave chase
to a private Caper of Capttaine Phillips, till such tyme as the Elizabeth
frigot commannded by Captaine Myns came in sight to the westward of
the sayd ffleet. And saith the wind upon the sayd Munday and particularly
before and att the tyme of the discovery of the Elizabeth being westward
and contrary to the sayd ffleet, they were forced to tack to and fro
to gather wind one while towards the English Coast, and anon towards
the ffrench Coast, and saith that about midday of the saud Munday the
Elizabeth comeing directly before the wind and being as it seemed
discovered to be an English frigot the foresayd Holland shipps [?gave ?upp]

Hollands Colours made upp towards the Elizabeth and exchanged
broadside with her, and thereby first discovered themselves to be men
of warr of Holland. And saith that during the sayd fight and [?before]
and indeed from the first discovery of the Elizabeth the foresayd Hamburgh
shipps putt out their Hamburgher colours and the Lubeckers the Lubeck colours
howbeit by reason of the slacknes of the wind the sayd colours were not [?XXXX]
but were forced to be stretched out and extended upon stretchers on
purpose that the Elizabeth might discerne them to be freinds, And saith
that the said ffleet had not any thing to doe with the sayd dutch men of
warr yet notwithstanding the Elizabeth frigot bore in upon them and
shott att them, and the sayd ffleet struck, and willingly submitted themselves
and did not offer any resistance against the Elizabeth nor give any assistance
to the sayd Hollanders, but saith the premisses notwithstanding the sayd Captaine
Minns did seize and deteyne the sayd ffleet all which he well [?XXX]
saw and observed and further cannot depose.

bene and still are lawfull owners thereof, and sett out the same to [?sea]
and lett her out to freight by Charter party to Abraham van [?dam]
Daniell Deville and others all Hamburghers for a voyage to [?Nantes]
for french wynes, and they the sayd freighters did lade aboard [?her]
Empty pipes in the sayd shipp. the premisses he knoweth being master
of the said shipp, and privy to the whole voyage and design And
further saving his subsequent depositions cannot depose.
