you; howbeit for that time the said English vessell[?s] got from
them and going further up the River, they came to the mouth of another
River that went up to the towne of the duke of Oldenburghs residence
in which river they entred and haled up as farr as they could and as long as they had
water enough, and still they were persued by the danes, and when the
English could carry their vessells now further, but were in danger to be a
prey to the danes who sought to take them, and the said Generall of the
danish fleete comming by land to them, and demanding the delivery up of
their vessells and they denying it, saying they could not doe it without their
Captaines order the said Generall said hee had foure hundred men at [?hount]
and would fetch them and either take or fire them, and soe departed to fetch
them, of which this deponent and the other English aboard
informing their said Captaine, who was againe at libertia, hee
ordered them rather than to be taken by the danes to blow the vesell up,
and this blowing up was on the seaventh day of July last
or thereabouts, And before such blowing up, the said Captaine Welch
accompanied with this deponent and others of his company
went to the duke of Oldenburghs Court to complaine of the violencccce
offered by the danes, and to implore his defence and protection, and the
said Captaine after his admission to the dukes presence, retourned and
told this deponent and others that staid without, that hee could get noe
aide or redresse from the said duke, and therefore hee resolved to blow
up the said vessells rather than that they should be taken by the dames
which accordingly was effected as aforesaid. And after the premisses
this deponent going for Amsterdam to come that way home, there came
a small danish man of warr aboard the Holland vessell wherein this deponent
had imbarked himselfe for the said passage, and tooke this deponent out and
carried him prisoner to Gluckstadt, where hee was close up in
prison and kept prisoner therein [XXXXX] for the space of eighteene
weekes. And further hee deposeth not, saving three others of the said
English were alsoe carried prisoners by the danes to Gluckstadt and all three
imprisoned in irons in the same prison wherein this deponent was kept.

To the 9th hee saith that if the sais vesells had not bin blowne up, the said
danish Generall would undoubtedly have seized and taken them, and
otherwise hee referrefth himselfe to his foregoing deposition.

To the 10th hee saith the said vessells, tackle, apparell, guns and
appurtenances and provisions as aforesaid were worth at the said time
of blowing up the summe of a thousand pounds sterling in his estimation,
And saith there were the time aforesaid sixtie eight men or thereabouts
belonging to the said two English vessells, And otherwise hee referreth
himselfe to his foregoing deposition.

To the last hee referreth himselfe to his foregoeing deposition, and cannot
otherwise depose.
