for the freight thereof (having not seene the bills of lading for the same) hee knoweth not nor what is the usuall rate of the freight of a tonne of oyle
thense to London And saith that those who brought the sayd oyle aboard did not come as the usuall
manner is and deliver them aboard at the shipp side but laye with their vessell about a
pistoll shott from the Catherine and with their tackle hoysed the butts upon their owne deck
and thense heaved them into the sea and the reason as hee beleeveth why they did soe
was for that they knew the shipp came from Genoa where the Plague was very hott, by which
meanes the Catherines Company were fayne to hawle them to their shipps side with a roape which
went from the shipp to the Vessell through the sea and then hoist them aboard, and they being [soe GUTTER]
put aboard all wett were stowed upon the shipps O[?u]lopp abaft the mayne mast in a very [safe XX GUTTER]
place and nothing stowed upon them but some loose hempe and bundles of hempe and some few [XXX of XXX GUTTER]
And the same being soe laden the sayd shipp departed therewith from Vado in the sayd moneth of June
and safely arrived therewith at this port of London in the moneth of August last and there delivered them
to the Agents of the sayd Bonnell who disposed thereof according to their will and pleasure, this hee deposeth
being boatswaine and entering the sayd butts in his booke and helpeing to take them in and alsoe
unlade them And further to these articles hee cannot depose./

To the 5th and 6th articles hee saith that for that hee sawe the sayd oyles soe stowed as aforesayd hee knoweth
they were well and carefully stowed and soe as noe dammage could or did happen to them by the de[fault GUTTER]
of the Master or Company of the sayd shipp Catherine or by want of good stowage but what dammage
happened to the sayd oyles, hee verily beleeveth soe happened by the leakinesse and badnesse of the Caske[s GUTTER]
alsoe for that the caske were not drawne over with plaister of parris in the heads of them and usually
Caskes of oyle are, but only drawne with a little resin round about the [XXXds] which melten off in [the GUTTER]
heate of the hold And the sayd butts of oyle before their delivery at the Port of London [were GUTTER]
of this deponents knowledge viewed by two able masters of shipps who tooke a view of their [dammage GUTTER]
at debtford and did upon view made declare in presence and hearing of this deponent and others of the sayd
shipps Company that the sayd twenty seaven butts of oyle were well and sufficiently stowed and
what the dammage which had befalne them proceeded not by ill stowage or by any weighty goods layne
upon them but by the leakinesse and insufficiencie of the Caske And further to these
articles saving his subsequent deposition hee cannot depose./

To the 7th hee saith that upon the arrivall of the sayd Oyles at London there came a Cooper
whose name hee knoweth not who sayd hee was sent aboard to view the sayd twenty seaven
butts of oyle in behalfe of the sayd Bonnell and to receave them from abroad and see
what condition they were And the sayd Cooper having viewed them did finde that
they were all in some measure leakie and but some more than others of them and
did in presence of this deponent and his precontest William Smith acknowledge and
declare that the butts of oyle were all well stowed and that the cause of their l[XXXX GUTTER]
was the badenesse of the Caske, and the sayd Cooper speakeing to the sayd Smith [sayd GUTTER]
lett them bee taken out and put into lighters and I will give you a noate [and GUTTER]
my hand that there is noe fault in the stowage but what dammage is happened is
by the leakinesse of the Caske or words to that effect And this deponent [XXX GUTTER]
remembreth that the sayd Cooper having soe viewed them there were platters and basons sett under the heads of such butts as could bee come at and the Cooper coming
the next morning found that the platters and basons were full and some runne [XXX GUTTER]
oyle that had leaked out in that one night tyme And further hee cannot depose/

To the 8th hee saith for that hee knoweth not how many tonnes of oyle the sayd twenty
seaven butts conteyned hee cannot depose to this article

To the 9th hee saith hee referreth him selfe to the Registry of this Court And
further cannot depose./

To the 10th hee saith hee beleeveth the sayd Young by not receaving his freight is
damnified thereby over and above his principall to the value of twenty pounds sterling
in this deponents Judgment and estimate And further hee cannot depose

To the 11th hee saith cannot depose/

To the last hee saith his foregoeing deposition is true./
