answered that all duties for them due to the Grand signior and all other duties were paid
at the tyme they were first laden aboard the sayd shipp and that they were
unladen againe only to new hange the Rudder of the shipp and stopp her leakes
and that hee the sayd Master was a stranger and had noe money to pay his
