To the fifth hee saith that the arlate Gerrard [?Riper], Lopez de Molina and other
the correspondents and factors of the said John Bollart who laded the said silver
before mentioned did before the lading thereof signifie unto the said producent by letters
that they had received his clear orders, and were imployed to lade a considerable quantitie
of silver and plate for his accompt for fflanders with the first opportunitie
and after the lading the foresaid silver claimed did againe advise him of the
lading thereof aboard the said shipps, with intimation of the particular parcells
and quantities in each shipp with the markes as before the
same are set downe and numbers, and sent him the bills of lading overland
for the same, which hee knoweth because hee is very well acquainted with their
hand writings and frequenting the counting house of the producent and having
all the particulars of the premisses communicated unto him by the producent
hee came to take the more particular notice thereof, especially having the
said bills of lading (being those annexed) showed unto him by the producent,
and thereby being the better enabled to specifie the
said particulars, and hee verily beleeveth the said bills of lading to be true
and reall, and to be subscribed by the said masters or pursers.

To the sixth hee saith hee hath seene the bookes and accounts of the said
producent touching the premisses, which are fairly and duly kept by way
of debitor and creditor according to the custome of merchants and soone after
notice received by the said John Bollart of the silver plate and money
aforesaid soe laden for his accompt with the prices and chardges thereof
he ethe said John [?Ballart] did give by the severall laders credit for the
same according to their severall proportions in his booke of accompts
and made himselfe creditor to them respectively by way of defalcations
of his effects remayning in their hands, and by the bookes and accompts
soe kept betweene merchant and merchant and letters and advises
they became liable to and dischardged from each other for very greate
summes of money, without which course the commerce of the world
could not subsist or be maintained, which hee knoweth being
a merchant and well acquainted with the premisses.
