of the shipp the Patience and}
the costs therein}

ffrederick Hoverling of Euchusen in North holland Mariner
master of the said shipp the Patience aged 21 yeares or
thereabouts sworne as in the acts of Court saith and
deposeth as followeth, videlicet.

That the shipp the patience lieth in the shallowe water neere
Saint Catherines, that every lowe water shee lies aground, and thereby the
caskes wherein her alading of wines are, are at every lowe
tidesoe strained and forced together that they leake exceedingly, and
the shipp is much strained and damnified theerby, soe that shee is
likely to be very leakie, and that unlesse the said wines beforthwith
landed or taken out, they will be in greate danger to be quite
lost and spoiled, and the shipp to be very much damnified.
And soe leakie are the wines alreadie, that the pump runs almost
with cleare wine.
