but what parts they have in her hee knoweth not And further cannot answere/

further hee cannot depose./

garret Pieterson [SIGNATURE, RH SIDE]

Repeated 18th of August before
Colonell Cock


The same day/

Examined upon the sayd allegation/

Rp. 4

Nicolas King of fflushing Mariner aged
forty eight yeares or thereabouts a wittnes sworne
and examined saith and deposeth as followeth videlicet./

To the first hee saith the goods brought the voyage in question to this
port of London with Abrahams offering were laden aboard her in the
Port of fflushing about the beginning of July 1656 at which tyme and
for a long tyme before shee was and at this present is a tight and strong shipp
and fitt to carry any Merchandize to any port what soever this hee the
better knoweth being one of her Company the voyage in question and having
bin of her Company for divers other voyages next before that made by
her within these two or three yeares last past during all which tyme
the sayd shipp hath of this deponents knowledge bin a tight stanch and
sufficient shipp to carry any Merchandizes And further hee cannot depose/

To the second and third articles of the sayd allegation hee saith that by
reason hee is an Inhabitant there hee well knoweth that the Port of fflushing
is drye every tyde of Ebb and all shipps rideing in it come on ground every
ebb tyde by which meanes it is very frequent that shipps being heavie laden
doe by such their being left a ground often tymes strayne and crush then selves and springe
leakes to the dammage of their ladeing and that it cannot bee prevented
by any care of their Masters or Companies, by reason of which frequencie
thereof if the shipp bee tight aboard and the dammage proceede not from above but
from beneath the Owners of the goods beare the dammage usually as a thing
casuall and the same is not imputed there to the Masters or Companyes
of the sayd shipps in such cases and this is a thing very frequent at
fflushing and well knowne to Sea men and others there liveing and others tradeing
thither And saith hee well knoweth that the Abrahams offering, the
tyde of ebb leaving her on grounds after shee had taken in almost all
her ladeing shee being, crushed with the weight thereof sprange a leake
neere her keele at which shee tooke water to about a foote in hold whereby
some of her ladeing was dammaged but it being presently discovered
by the master and Company they pumped her dry and romaged her goods as
well as they could and finding two or three packs dammaged with wett
received put them out from on shipp board and left them at fflushing and
not finding any more at present which they could preserve to be dammaged
caused the sayd leake the next day after the discovery thereof (which discovery was in the
Evening) to bee amended and shortly after the winde serving fayre and their
Convoy being ready they sett sayle with the rest of her ladeing for London
when they afterwards safely arrived And hee saith that what dammage is
happened to any of the goods in question happened meerely by reason of
the leake occasioned as a foresayd and not through any insufficencie of the sayd
shipp (which is still a strong stanch shipp) nor default of the Master and company
of her And further hee cannot depose/
