To the 9th hee saith, That since the said shipps arrivall in the River of
London the said Robert Hubbart by himselfe or his procurement hath

this rendent was sick, but saith hee this rendent hath received no freight for the same
but beleeveth that one of his Owners Agents hath received freight for
the same, and that the said Hubbart still unduely possesseth, hath
unduely disposed of the said goods./
