vessells proceeded from this port on the said designe in or about
May last of his knowledge, going masters mate of the said
bugger vessell as aforesaid.

To the third hee saith that after such their setting out and departuure
from this port, the said two vessells went and proceeded to the
River of Bremen, and came to a place there having on one
side the dominion of the duke of Oldenburg, and on the other
the dominion of the king of Sweden, both in amitie with this State,
and this was in or about the end of the said moneth of May, which
hee knoweth for the reasons aforesaid.

To the fourth 5th. 6. 7. and 8th hee saith that the ffleete of the king of danmarke
came into the said River after the said two vessells came in thither,
and the Generall of the said ffleete commanded the said Captaine

their vessells ashoare but the subiects of the duke of Oldenburgh
refused to permit and would not suffer them to hale them ashore,

were not permitted in a friends territorie to be haled ashore, but
