To the 14th hee saith hee never knew the Interrogate damerell till the
voyage in question, but beleeveth and J him to bee an able sea man and
hath heard and beleeveth that hee hath gone former voyages to Greeneland for
the sayd Batson and well vnderstands what it is to goe thither, And further hee
cannot answere./

To the 15th hee saith hee knoweth the Interrogate Reynolds Chametry TO DO: AshmXX
Kirton and fford and hath knowne them only during the voyage in question and since
and (soe farr as hee knoweth or remembreth) the first tyme hee sawe them was on
board the Owners Adventure, And what they are reputed as to their honesty hee
knoweth not, nor whether they have bin at Greeneland before the voyage in
question And further saving his foregoeing deposition hee cannot answere/

To the 16th hee saith hee was never at Greeneland before the voyage in
question, and did then observe that the Ice there had motion and did somtymes
open in some places and that the companyes of shipps who goe thither doe
observe such openings and by benefitt thereof worke within the same
and further hee cannot answere/

To the last hee saith hee beleeveth in his conscience that in case the sayd
damerell after hee came out from the Ice ˹as aforesayd˺ had seene any oportunitie to
have gained wrought in againe and gained a harbour and had Command
his Company of the Owners Adventure to worke in againe the sayd
Company would haue yeilded obedience to his Command, and haue
endeavoured to worke into harbour rather then staye at Sea as they did
it being a thing which would have more conduced to the health of
their bodyes, and to their and their Imployers profitt if also if they had
light upon whales, and saith hee beleeveth that after the sayd shipp
Owners Adventure wrought out of the Ice to Sea againe there were
better oportunities of getting to harbour then that shee had when shee
laye in the Ice and was wrought out thereof to sea as aforesayd, but
because the X the edge of the Ice was sometymes neerer the shoare
then where shee wrought out but noe oportunite soe good as that
shee could get into harbour soe farr as this deponent could observe,
And saith hee heard not any of the sayd shipps Company after such
her comming out to seas either encourage the sayd damerell to put into
the Ice againe, or disswade him from soe doeing./
