the usuall way for shipps bound from Ciprus to London to sayle by Zante
where they be furnished with necessaries. in which respect Zant is held
to be the best and sećurest passage, And further saving his subsequent
deposition hee ćannot depose.

Upon the Rest he is not examined by direction of the Producent

To the Crosse=Interrogatories [CENTRE HEADING]

To the 1. and 2. he saith that being not in Company with Captaine Hughes the tyme
interrate he ćannot depose.

To the 3d hee saith That the Thomas Bonadventure lay about a mile and a halfe
from shoare att the tyme interrate, and that one hundred and seventy baggs
of wooll could not in 4. 6. or ten dayes have bene receyved on board her, for
that she had a considerable lading allready in her and wanted room
to stow so many baggs without steeving And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 4th he saith he cannot depose.

To the 5th he saith he hath bene twice att Ciprus and came from thence to England

To the 6. 7. and eighth. Interrogatories he saith that the direct Course from Salina Road
for England and allso from Zant to England is directly to the Streights mouth
and that Zant is about 20 leagues out of the way. and Corsica about fifty
leagues more out of the way: and Leghorne yet ten leagues more out of
the direct Course. how be it he saith that as the winds may be and often happen
to be the sayd places happen not to be out of the way. And otherwise he
ćannot depose.

To the 9th he saith that a shipp of the burthen interrate having such goods as the
Thomas Bonadventure had on board her to the quantitie interrte hath not roome
in her nor ćan receyve 170. baggs of woolls in her to be steeved afterward
though she have forty four men on board, for he saith that steeving
is difficult requiring much tyme and good roome, and that the wools
must be brought on board by degrees as the steeving goes forward, and
that the worke if steeving will otherwise be hindred. And further
he ćannot depose.

To the 10th. he saith he ćannot depose, saying that so long as this Rendent stayed
att Ciprus the sayd Captaine Hughes from tyme to tyme expressed his desire to be
gone and not to be willing to stay for the Convoy.

To the xith hee saith he ćannot depose.

To the xijth. he saith That to keepe the men att worke that noe tyme be lost
It is the usuall Course to have baggs of wooll on board still in readines. videlicet
twenty or thirty att a tyme brought from the shoare when the shipp is
empty and afterwards ten or fifteen as the roome in the shipp will
beare and the steeving goes on. And otherwise he cannot answer

To the 14th. he saith that in a shipp of the burthen interrte the number of
baggs to be layd in a tier must be according to the breadth of the shipp
some times 8. 10. or 12. baggs in a tier, and that a tier may by the
number of men interrate be layd in a day. But he saith there ćannot in
such case be so many steeved the next day, in regard the steeving geare
will take up upp much tyme in placing fitt for the worke. so as
generally speaking to teir and steive eight baggs a day one day with another
is held a sufficient labour for so many men in such a shipp as hee before
sett forth. And otherwise he ćannot depose-

To the 15th. and sixteenth Interrogatories he saith he cannot depose.
