reason the sea wrought over the shipps side and decks soe that the same was in great
danger of being cast away and the Company of her of perishing, And hee saith that what
damage is happened to the sayd shipps ladeing happened not by any defect or
insufficiencie of the sayd shipp, or for want of dennage and good stowing the goods or through any neglect of the
sayd shipps company, but only by reason of the sayd stormees and the violence of them, which
was soe great, that this deponent (having used to goe to sea these twenty yeares) never
conceived him selfe to be in the like danger of being cast away as hee was in the sayd
stormes, The premisses hee deposeth for the reasons aforesayd and further
hee cannot depose./

To the last hee saith his foregoeing deposition is true./
