during which tyme of her stayeing there to take in her ladeing shee was a [staunch]
shipp and noe way leakie more than what is usuall for shipps to be in such
Countries as the Barbadoes is and tooke in soe little water that shee was
cleered thereof by one pumpe pumpeing once in fower and twenty howers and
the water shee receaved dureing her stay there was noe way preiudiciall to
any of her ladeing this hee knoweth being one of the sayd shipps company and
gunner of her and well observing that her goods continued dry and well conditioned
at her departure thence And further saving his subsequent deposition hee [cannot depose]

To the 3: 4th 5th and 6th articles of the sayd allegation hee saith That for that hee this
deponent kept a Journall of the voyage in question hee knoweth that the sayd shipp had
receaved in her ladeing consisting of sugar and other goods sett sayle therewith from [Spike]

sufficient shipp and noe way leakie more then shipps usually are that lay to [?XXX]

/ And hee saith that
the twentith day of August last the sayd shipp in her passage from the Barbados

dayes and nights with that furie that the Company and passengers in her expected [?XX]
that they should bee cast away and they and shee and her ladeing perish in the sea by the violence
thereof And soe great the tempest was that the winde kept the sayd shipp downe in the
water on the starrboard side soe that by that meanes shee tooke in very [much water]
from aboard the violence of the sea Opening her seames and makeing way for the [water]
to gett down into hold amongst her goods and by reason of her lyeing soe one [?XXXX]
the water did not come to the pumpes soe that her company could not make [use of the]
pumpes to cleere her of the water receaved till the sayd storme was over, and the
storme being over soe soone as possible might bee and that the shipp [laye]
that the water would come to the pumpes the Master and Company did their utmost
endeavour to free the shipp from the water shee had receaved in the sayd storme hee
knoweth being one of her company and helpeing to pumpe her And further to thies
articles hee cannot depose./

To the 7th hee saith that upon the first of September last the sayd shipp being on
her course for England did abo[ud] a hundred leagues from the West of England
meete with an other very violent tempest which continued for fower dayes together
with such great furie that her company expected every moment when shee [?XXX]
founder in the sea and soe great the force of it was that they were not able to [goe]
before the Sea but were forced to lye a hull with her under the sea by meanes
whereof the sea passed both over her and into her with great force and [broke]
two of her beames and ranne amongst her ladeing notwithstanding [all ?the]
endeavour her Master and Company could use [?XXX ?XXXX]
being one of her company as aforesayd And further hee cannot depose./
