Whereas Richard Davenporte was Lawfully Summoned to answer att a Councill Board Now held att the house of James Thickpen as an Evidence for Nath'l Nicholson and being aged about Sixty Sixe years & very unable and uncapable of Travelling Do begg leave to give my Deposition. And I do now Sweare upon the holy Evangelist That I never did know that Thomas Harriss of this Province Deceased was ever a Tennant, So far as I know but Enjoyed his Land That Nathl Nicholson now Lives upon peaceably & quietly dureing his life. And further this Deponent Saith Nott.
