Master of the sayd shipp whereof he continued in her the sayd voyage
and more particularly once in a certayne storme that befell the sayd
shipp in which the sayd Master calling him upp, hee in this deponents
hearing refused to come upp and swore he would not come. And ano=
ther tyme att Newcastle where the sayd Master bidding him to call
upp the Company to assist the Carpenters in removing their stages,
he the sayd Johnson in this deponents hearing refused so to doe, and
sayd it was not worke belonging to the Mariners, and that they were
fooles if they gave assistance. And the sayd then bidding him
to give his helping hand he the sayd Johnson swore hee would not

much given to, and did often use swearing and cursing on board
the sayd shipp. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the seventh artice he saith, that he doth verily beleive that in case
the sayd stanchions had bene strong enough as they ought and might
have bene the sayd horses had not bene lost, but had bene preserved.
for he saith the sayd stanchions were made onely of deale boards
whereas the sayd Robert Cooke and his Mariners whom the stowage did
concerne might have had backs and sparrs to have made them
strong and sufficient if they had pleased the same being in this
deponents hearing offered them att Gottenburgs aforesayd. so as
in this deponents judgements the weaknes of the sayd stanchions (of
the making whereof the sayd James Cooke and Maynard Johnson
should have had care as Mate and Boatswayne) as the cause
of the losse of the sayd horses in manner as aforesayd. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the 8th article of the sayd allegation he saith, that he hath made two severall
voyages to the Barbadoes, and by what he hath there seene and
observed he doth beleive that the sayd horses would there, had they
safely arrived, have yeilded fifty pounds sterling or thereabouts
per horse. and beleiveth, that the sayd Batson and Company have otherwise
by the meanes aforesayd bene endammaged besides the losse of the
sayd horses and proffitt that might have bene made of them, but
how much he is not able to say. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the .9th. article hee saith the sayd James Cooke was and is a youngman and not
above twenty two yeares of age as he beleiveth. and is reputed to be
his mate. And otherwise he cannot depose.
