that from Plymouth she carried a lading of pilchards (six hundred
hogsheads) to and delivered them at Leghorne according to consignation to one
Mr James Gold the arlate Golds factor there. And saith that when she
soe went from Plymouth she was an old shipp, some part of her
upper worke untrimmed, and he pumpes not fitted as they should bee
And by reason of the defects of the said shipp and stresse of weather
then happening neere the Northern Cape the goods and lading of the
said shipp received dammage by the waters running into the hold
amongst them. And saith that had the upper workes of the shipp bin trimmed
and she fitted as she ought to have bin hee beleeveth that the
dammage might not have bin soe great as it was, And saith
the Company did not in the least neglect their duties their lives as
well as goods being hazarded by reason of that storme and the violence
thereof. And saith that hee assisted in the unlading the goods in

damnified, but how many or what quantity of them not seeing the same opned or what
the Merchants have suffered he knoweth nor cannot estimate, Et alr
