belonged to her in former voyages and well knoweth that during the
sayd voyage she was a stronge tight and stanch shipp saving he saith that after
her taking in her ladeing at Saint Martines arlate (whense shee came in
company of severall other Merchants shipps about the 25th of March last
under Convoy of the Saphire ffrigott and Constant Warwick who convoyed
there till they came upon into the Channel upon the Coast
of England to avoide the danger of dunkirke men of warr and other
shipps of warr enimies to this Commonwealth) the weather proved
very windie and somewhat stormie and the sayd Convoyes making haste to get upon
the Coast of England the shipp willing Mynde being desyrous to keepe
company with the sayd Convoyes to avoide danger of surprizall by
enymyes the Company of the sayd shipp desyred the Convoys to slacken
their sayles somewhat, that they might might the better keepe Company with them
but the Convoyes being shorte of victualls (as they sayd) and desyrous
to come as soone as they could upon the English Coast, did not slack their
sayles, soe that the shipp Willing mynde was forced to beare sayle
more then ordinary to enioye the benefit of their convoy and company,
and by that meanes of soe having sayles hee saith the sayd shipp willing
minde was soe streyned that shee thereby proved leakie and looke in or
made much water, which the sayd shipps company could in noe
wise prevent though they did their true endeavour at the pumpe to keepe
her as drye as possible they could, and plyed the pumps constantly of
this deponents sight and knowledge, soe that in case any damage did happen
to any of her lading the same was not occasioned by any defect
or insufficiencie in the sayd ship or fault or neglect of her Company but meerely by her soe bearing
sayle to keep company with the sayd Convoyes and avoide the danger of
surprizall as aforesayd And he saith it is usuall that laden shipps
if they bee forced to brace more sayle then ordinary to keepe company as the Willing Minde then was (though otherwise they
bee tight) doe prove leakie with over bearing of sayle and the same cannot
bee by their Masters and Companyes avoided And further to these articles hee
cannot depose./

To the 5th hee saith that being Masters mate aboard as aforesaid the voyage
in question hee well knoweth the sayd shipp Willing mynde by such her
bearing sayle more then ordinary did keepe with the sayd Companyes till
shee came in the Channell by which meanes she was freed from
danger of men of warr and arrived in safety in this port of London saving
for what harme happened to her or her ladeing by bearing sayle as aforesayd,
and saith if shee had not soe borne sayle and by that meanes
kept company with the sayd Convoyes shee had bin in great danger to
have bin surprized by men of warr of dunkirke and other places and to have
bin wholly lost shee and her lading And further hee cannot depose/

To the last hee saith his foregoeing deposition is true

To the Interrogatories given in by Mr Smith on behalfe of the
sayd Culling Kirby and daniell Arthur [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith hee cometh to testifie the truth at the request of the
