too late, and there being not above fifteen foot water, the shipp struck and
lost her rudder and was damnified as aforesayd. As for the importunity or force
interrogated, or that the sayd Warren did putt the helme a port, or the sayd
Wilkinson[?s] forcing the helme to be putt hard on starboard hee knoweth nothing
thereof. Neither doth he know what the sayd privat markes are which the sayd
Warren is in this Interrogatory pretended to have endeavoured to bring together.
And further he cannot depose.

To the 5th. he saith the sayd shipp having beat over the sayd Woollpacke came into
three fathom and a halfe water, and then her sayles were furled, and both her
yards and topmast struck, and her two bower anchors cast out, and the wind was
high and her anchors yeilded and gave way, so as the sayd shipp struck agayne
on another sand, and then her sheat ánchors were cutt as aforesayd, and she beat over
that other sand, and then her sheat ánchor was cast out, and the wind increa=
sing the sayd sheat ánchor was cutt in the flood, and the shipp was forced to
shoare, And as for the occasion of the sayd inconveniences and dammages and
who was in fault thereof he referreth himselfe to his foregoeing deposition
And further otherwise than negatively cannot depose.
