ten sometymes fifteen some Tymes twenty baggs, and not upwards, in one day [# INSERTION 1] ,
To the end noe tyme may be lost, but imployed to the best advantage of the
voyage: But whether this order was observed, in the steeving
of the wolls on board the shipp interrogat hee ćannot depose for the Reasons
aforesayd. And further hee cannot answer.
