To the second article hee saith hee being Carpenter as aforesayd, and after

were divers chests of sugars and divers pipes and hogsheads of oyle lad[?en GUTTER]
aboard the sayd shipp the Oporto Merchant at Lisbon to be thence transported
and delivered at London, but the quantities either of sugars or oyles soe

without any sayle and sometymes with only a mizen sayle which
notwithstanding the force of the fowle weather was soe great that the
