certaine moneys for the Master of her therewith to defray port charges, and
hee beleeveth all Customes and duties due to the Grand signior or his
Agents at Scanderoone and Cyprus were paid for the sayd shipps [?Cargoes and GUTTER]
goods were paid before her setting sayle from thense therewith, for that hee
beleeveth it is the custome there as it is alsoe in other countries
not to suffer shipps to depart till it doth appear they have paid all

of them were hindered in ladeing the rest by the Bashawe and other
officers and souldiers of the Grand signiour who pretended that the same goods being put on shoare there
the Grand signior ought to have customs for them before they were
reladen and soe hindered the Master and Company of her from
relading the rest, which to prevent the sayd Master made application
to the Interrogate Roger ffowke (who is reputed the English Consull
