that seized him had the English flagg up when shee met him but
with some difference[?s], namely shee had a redd flagg, with a crosse
in the corner, only there were the picture of three towers in the
middle of the redd flagge, like the towers given in the hamburgh
flagg, soe that this deponent did not knowe but yet
thought that hee was an Englishman, and saith the said shipp
the Peter being neere the ffrench coast and making for the land neere
[?Briach]. two ffrench boates came and towed her amongest the rocks
and when the said man of warr approached, the ffrench that were come
from shore aboard this deponent without this deponents order or
knowledge made three shotts at or towards the said man of warr
namely two with bullets and the other without, and from the said shipp
Peter hee saith there were noe other shott or shotts made

from seizure by shooting alsoe with muskets, to hinder the

resistance made, and what resistance was before made as aforesaid
was donne by the said ffrench against this deponents will.

To the last hee saith the said shipp the Peter was fastened
ashore with two towes when the said Barnets company seized
her, And otherwise hee cannot depose.

was shipt in her about three monethes since. And otherwise hee
cannot depose.
