Ad 3 rendet et deponit that when the said shipp went from Plymouth her said
voyage she was an old shipp which soe generally looked upon to bee, And the
upper worke he saith was untrimed and unrepaired and the pumpes of the shipp
were not fitted as they should have bin for such a voyage and by reason
of such defects of the said shipp and a great storme happening neere the
Northerne Cape the foresaid goods received dammage by reason
of the waters comming into the said shipp and running into the hold. Et
alr nescit.

Ad 4 rendet et deponit that in case the said shipp had bin fitted as she ought to have
bin for such a voyage, in her upper workes and pumpes hee beleeveth
in his Conscience that the goods would not have received soe much
dammage as they did. And it is possible hee saith that the goods
might have bin damnified by the fore said storme had the shipp bin a
tight and substantiall shipp, et alr nescit.

Ad 5 rendet et deponit that hee helped to land y:e said lading of
Pilchards at Leghorne, and did see and know that severall of the Caskes
of the said goods were damnifyed by water running into or amongst them, which were chiefly occasioned by reason the shipp
was defective in her upper workes and pumpes and thereby unable to beare
a storme soe well as a stronger shipp. Et alre nescit

Ad 6 rendet et deponit that the owners of the said pilchard have sustained losse
and dammage but to what vallue he cannot estimate. Et alr nescit

Peter Tooker de Milbrooke in Com Cornwall Nauta annos agens 30 XXXXX XXXXX XXXX Jurat

Ad primum et 2 Interria deponit et rendet that hee was second mate of the arlate
shipp Welfare Samuell XXXXX Master and sailed in her from Plymouth
to Leghorne thence to Gallipoli to lade oiles and thence to London which
yoyage she soe began on about the 20:th of December last and came to
an anchor over against Bell wharfe staires in lower Shadwell about six weekes since. And saith the said shipp went from Plymouth with a lading of
about 600 hogsheads of pilchards to bee carried in the sd ship and to bee delivered at Leghorne to Mr James Gould upon the account of Mr John Gold
and Company the producents. Et alr nescit.

Ad 3 et 4 Interria rendet et depont that when the sd ship began her sd
voyage she was an old shipp and some part of her upper work was defective
and the pumps underviceable when occasion and greatest use was to have bin
made of them and thereby unusefull for the said shipp, and by reason thereof
and stresse of weather or storme happening off the Northerne Cape the goods
or lading of pilchards received dammage about (as hee conceiveth) twenty two
Inches deepe. at the Windward pumpe. And beleeveth also that if the said shipp
had bin a tight and substantiall shipp the goods in all probability would not
have suffered dammage in such a measure as they did notwithstanding the foresd storme Et alre nescit rendere.
