be not able to receive and steeve above eight baggs a day one day with
another. And further or, otherwise, being he was not in the voyage now
in question, hee saith he ćannot depose.

To the 10th Article he saith. That by like experience he knoweth that It is very
usuall for shipps in their passage from Ciprus for England to sayle by
Zant aswell to take in Currants into the Crane w{XX} of such shipps which
seldome happens to be full laden att Cyprus, as {f}or the conveniency of
fresh water which is often there taken in, and especially for the safety
and security of the voyage Zant being the likely of place in all the
passage to find Company of other shipps bound for the streights
and those seas; on which considerations he for his part
taketh Zant to be little or nothing out of the way. And further
he cannot depose.

Upon the rest he is not examined by direction of the Producent.

To the Crosse Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the 1. and 2. Interrogatiories he saith he was not in the voyage in question, and knoweth
nothing of the matters interrate.

To the 3d. he saith, that not knowing how neare to or how far from the shoare
the shipp interrate lay he cánnot depose.

To the 4th. he cannot depose for the reasons aforesayd.

To the 5th. he saith he hath bene four voyages at Cyprus in one of which
he came from Cyprus for England. And otherwise cannot depose.

To the 6th he saith that the direct Course for Cyprus to England is directly to
the Streights mouth, And Zant (unlesse in the case before mentioned)
he taketh to be about five and twenty leagues out of the direct Course.
To the 7th he saith that from Zant to England the direct Course is to sayle directly
to the Streights mouth. and that Corsica is as he takes it about .50. leagues
out of the sayd direct Course. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 8th. he saith that Leghorne is, as he taketh it, about ten leagues more
out of the last mentioned direct Course than Corsica.

To the 9th. he saith that one hundred baggs being steeved in a shipp of
280 tonnes, one hundred and seventy baggs more cannot be receyved
aboard by forty four men and be steeved afterwards, nor can be
receyved on board in six eight or ten dayes, the reason whereof is because
there is not in a vessell of that tonnage, sufficient stowage for so
vast a bulke of woolls without steeving. And otherwise he saith he
cannot depose.

To the 10th and 11th. he saith he cannot depose.

To the 12. and 13th. Interrogatories he saith It is usuall in the steeving of woolls
first to lay a Tier of baggs, and then to steeve in as many more as
are layd in the Tier. And he likewise saith that It is the usuall Custome
to prevent losse of tyme and for keeping the men busyed in steeving
to have a sufficient number of baggs allways ready on the dockes
yet in such a proportion that the worke be not
impeded. in which respect. It is usuall to have about ffifteene baggs
allwayes in readines, and to supply them by fetching more from the shoare
as the steeving worke goes forward and not otherwise. And further
he saith he cannot depose.

To the 14th. Interrogatory. he saith that in a shipp of the burthen interrate forty four
men cánnot lay 20. 18. 16. or fifteen baggs of wooll in a tier, nor cáuse
many baggs be tiered by so many men in an howre or thereabouts in such a shipp
neither can so many men in such a shipp steeve so many more baggs; in one day but
