Gusd. All which he this deponent knoweth to be true for that he
ćame a passenger in the sayd shipp from Elsineur and saw and
was an eyewitnes of the premisses. And otherwise cannot depose

To the .7th. article he saith that during the foresayd storme the sayd shipp did
receyve great quantityes of water, and did often shipp whole seas
together. And the sayd Master and Company plyed the pumps, and were as
carefull as men could be each one in his place to preserve the sayd
shipp, her lading and themselves, being all in extreme danger of
having bene swallowed upp by the sea. And there were three
shipps lost in the sayd storme upon that Coast as this deponent after=
wards heard who saw them driven upon Jutland and did then
conclude that they could not probably escape persihing. Of the
premisses he was an eyewitnes in manner as aforesayd being a Passenger
in the sayd shipp. And otherwise he ćannot depose, saving that he [XXX]
beleiveth that in case the sayd shipp had not been an able and strong
shipp (as she was) or the sayd master and Company not industrious (as
they were) the sayd shipp with her lading and men on board her had
all perished in the sayd storme:-

To the 8th he saith that the sayd mast yards sayles tackle cable, and anchors were lost
in manner as aforesayd for preservation of the sayd shipp and lading, and
were of the value of one hundred and fifteene pounds sterling in
this deponents Judgment. which by the experience he hath had in sea
affayres for theis six and thirty yeares last past having bene
Master and allso Steirsman of severall good shipps, doth allso
hold it for certayne that by the Custome of the Seas and lawes of
Oleron the sayd dammage is and ought to bee putt into an average be=
twixt the sayd shipp and her lading aććording to a rateable
proportion. And otherwise he saith he ćannot depose.

To the 9. 10. and 11th articles of the sayd allegation, he saith that by reason of the
premisses the sayd shipp was unable to proceed upon her voyage for London
till she were supplyed with such things as she lost. for which [?purchase]
the sayd Barnhide (Gusd not affording[?e] supply in that kind) did repair
to Christian Sandt and there f[?a]rnish himselfe of a mainmast yards
sayles anchors and tackle which were afterwards sett upp and fitted in
to the sayd shipp, And one bundle of hemp was taken out of the sayd
shipp and sold towards the payment of the sayd necessaries so provided as this
deponent beleiveth. And after six weekes stay which were spent in
providing for and fitting the sayd shipp as aforesayd, she departed for London
but by Crosse winds was driven into fflackery and there was forced to
stay about a fortnight, and then departed for London and in her course
the wind falling short putt into Newcastle in the North of England [?att]
the beginning of December last. this deponent coming still as a Passenger
in the sayd shipp. And otherwise he cannot depose.
