notice of some goods brought to this port in a foreigne bottome
that were carried to and concealed in the house of the arlate Jenkin
Ellis in saint Catherines arlate, without paying of

Protector of the Capture thereof, they went and searched
his house and there found some tenn or dozen cabinets and some
fine linnen cloth hidd and concealed in his house, thereof custome
thereof not paid; All which they seized and carried to the
Custome house, and this hee saith was to his best remembrance
about nine monethes since, and after the seizure and carrying
