aboard the Salvador one of the sayd bills of Lading signed by Christian
Cloppenbergh as aforesayd. And he verily beleiveth that the sayd bills
were aboard the sayd shipps respectively att the tyme of their seizure
and came into the possession of the Takers, and by them or some other
on their behalfe were sent into this Court where they remaine as he
beleiveth in the Registry thereof. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the third he saith that the arlate three baggs conteyning nyne hundred


Ryalls of eight more or lesse marked as in the margent and formerly
mentioned in his deposition to the first article, being Laded aboard the sayd
shipp Salvador some dayes after the Lading of the former baggs and
a Convenient wind happening about two dayes before the shipp
Salvador was to have departed, the sayd Christian Cloppenbergh
not willing to loose the advantage of that wind and present opportunity
sett sayle and departed from Cadize without having made or signed
bills of lading for the arlate three baggs, and so much the sayd Christian
Cloppenbergh told this deponent att sea in their Course toward Ostend
before the seizure being a Passenger aboard his shipp and did then
say and affirme that the sayd three baggs were the bags or money
of the sayd ffrancis du Bois and that they should be as safely delivered
to him or his Assignes att Ostend as if Bills of lading had bene signed by him the sayd
Cloppenbergh for the same. And further he cannot depose saving he
beleiveth that in case the sayd wind had not then happened and that the
sayd shipp had stayd so long as was first intended, Bills of lading would
have bene signed for the sayd three baggs arlate as well as there was for
the rest.

To the fourth he saith that the two bills of lading annexed to the allegation
and now showne to this examinat. (videlicet one of them with this name
Ottavo Jorge att the foot thereof which was written by Pedro Purser of
the Sampson as aforesayd being for the sayd two thousand three hundred
peices of eight laden aboard the Sampson as aforesayd. and the other bill
of lading signed by the hand and name of Christian Cloppenbergh
att the foot thereof being for the sayd two thousand one hundred peices of
eight laden aboard the Salvador as aforesayd) were and are two of
the Originall Bills of Lading above by this deponent deposed of and were
and are true and reall and not colourable. And otherwise referring
himselfe to the Acts of this Court, he cannot depose.

To the fifth he saith that he hath noe personall knowledge of the arlate
Jacques Hoyes, but saith that he is commonly taken and reputed to be a
Merchant and ffactor at Ostend and to be a subiect of the King of
Spaine. and this deponent hath likewise credibly heard att Cadize
in Spaine before the sayd shipps departed from thence that the sayd Jacques
Hoyse had formerly done and dispatched busines for the sayd ffrancisco du
Boyes. And he saith that the sayd moneyes or Ryalls of 8/8 were really to
have bene delivered to the sayd du Bois himselfe for his owne Accompt and
to the sayd Jacques Hoys onely in case of his absence, and for the accompt
howsoever of the sayd du Boys, and soemuch the sayd du Bois told this deponent
before he came away from Cadize. And further he cannot depose.

To the sixth he saith that the sayd monies or Ryalls of eight allegate were
really laden by the sayd ffrancis du Boys, att his sole Risco and perill and for
his sole use and Accompt as aforesayd. And noe subiect of the States
