doth beleive it to be true that the sayd shipp Little Mary was taken to
freight by the sayd Body for the voyage arlate. And further or otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. and .14th articles of the sayd Libell he saith he cannot depose

To the 15th article of the sayd Libell he saith that during the tyme of this deponents
stay att the Canaries which was from the 29th of November to the
seventeenth of January last past, he did observe that all sorts of provisions
were deere ánd sćarce, and that herrings did yeild and were ordinarily
sold att eighty Ryalls per barrell. and beefe att one hundred and
forty Ryalls per kintall which is neere a Ryall and halfe per pound. and
pipe staves att a thousand Ryalls per thousand. and att such rates the
lading of the Little Mary if they had arrived in good condition att
the Canaries whilst this deponent was there might have bene sold. And
otherwise he cannot depose.

To the .16th. article of the sayd Libell he saith that whilest he he was att the
Canaries as aforesayd the price of wynes there was from three hundred
and eighty Ryalls to four hundred sixty two Ryalls per pipe according
to the quality of the wyne. So as he beleiveth that two hundred forty
three barrells of herrings six thousand weight of beefe and eight
thousand pipestaves (in case the sayd shipp Little Mary had brought so
many thither within the tyme aforesayd) being sold att the rates above
specifyed might and would have produced about seventy pipes
of Canary wynes or rather more. And otherwise he cannot depose
saving that he bought wynes att the Canaries the tyme aforesayd some att
340. some att. 360. some att four hundred. Some att 462. Ryalls per
pipe and that att his returne to this Port he found the price of wynes
of the Canaries here some att six and twenty some att four and thirty
some att thirty seven pound sterling per pipe.

To the .17.th article he saith that the sayd Mr Stephens had att the Canaries about
fifty pipes of wynes in readines which he intended to have laden on
board the Little Mary over and besides what the foresayd goods would
have produced, which the sayd shipp not performing her voyage, are
still there to the great preiudice of the sayd Mr Body for whom
they were intended, of some of which this deponent tasted, and saith
they are in danger to be utterly lost by reason of the sayd shipps not
comeing according to expectation, which if they be lost it will be to the
damage of the sayd Mr Body neere four hundred pounds. And he
likewise heard the sayd Mr Stephens speake of twenty pipes more which
he did intend (as hee sayd) to lade in the sayd vessell Little Mary for the
sayd Body.

To the 18th article of the sayd Libell he saith that in case the sayd shipp Little Mary
had as was expected come to the Canaries there was license obteyned for her
to have sold her goods and laden wynes on board her and dutch
dispatches were prepared in readines for her to that purpose which this
deponent there saw and read within the tyme aforesayd which were so
had and obteyned in regard of an Embargo upon English shipps and
goods. and by vertue of the sayd License and Dutch dispatches the sayd vessell
Little Mary (had she come thither) might have bene laden with safety
the sayd Embargo notwithstanding as severall other English shipps
were by the like meanes of the certayne knowledge and sight of this
deponent. And otherwise he cannot depose.
