stormie and tempetuous weather by meanes whereof shee shipped much
sea water notwithstanding all the diligence and care of the master and
company (which diligence hee saith was greate) to prevent the same, and that in cases
any dammage hath befallen the said goods or any of them the said voyage, hee
saith the same was occasioned and came inavoidably by the said stormes
and fowle weather, and not by any defect or insufficiencie of or in that
said shipp or default or negligence of or in the master of the said shipp
or of the company or any of them, all which hee deposeth and knowledge
knoweth because hee this deponent was one of the said shipps company all
the said voyage, and sawe the lading and helped to lade and stowe the said
goods, and thereby hee alsoe well knoweth that the said shipp the ffortune
at the time of her taking in of her said goods was a stronge, tight staunch
and sufficient shipp and fitt for the said voyage

To the second hee saith hee was purser and assisting at the lading of
all the goods interr that were laden aboard the said shipp at dantzicke for
the voyage in question.

To the third hee saith that the wood namely the clapboard and wainscot were laid and stowed upon the
said matts over the wood and then mattes very carefully laid over the said
pack goods againe, whereby they were sufficiently and well dennaged and
f[?enced] against dammage, which they would undoubtedly have avoided
had it not bin for the said extraordinary fowle weather.

To the fourth hee saith that the said shipp the ffortune was about four
monethes in the said voyage betwixt dantzick and London, in which hee
saith that shee was soe tight that notwithstanding soe much fowle
weather and stormes, shee did not become leakie nor sprung any leake.
And saith that in the North sea shee mett with a shipp that came then most of
Norway, in the companie whereof shee came into the River of Thames, but
had not any company from Dantzicke, and otherwise hee referreth himselfe
to his foregoing deposition.

To the fifth hee saith that the said dammage was occasioned by sea water which was shipped and that was received and
came in above upon the said shipp and thence belowe into her upon her
working and slinging in the said stormes and tempests, and not by
leakinesse or taking in any water in her lower deckes.

To the sixth hee saith that the hatches of the said shipp were close and
secured without by a tarred saile laid over the same and the shipps boate upon the
said saile, but alsoe by close nailing downe all the
edges of the said saile to the deck.

To the last hee hath not soe deposed.
