                  &c. Annoq Dni 1715, Appeared Mr Peter Attwood, and being

                  uell Young Esqr concerning a certain Letter by Him Supposed

                  to be wrote, and directed to Mr William Killuck, at the Wood

                  Yard Dated the 21st day of December, 1712 & particularly

                  as •to the first Paragraph thereof, acknowledges the said

                  Letter, to be by Him wrote, and deposeth on the Holy Evan

                  gelist, that what is therein meant by the Severall Expressions,

                  in the sd first Paragraph, was in answer to a Letter he had

                  some time before that, received from the sd Mr Killuck

                  wherein he had requested, a Sight or Perusall of a Sermon

                  by the Deponent Preached Sevrll times on the following text,

                  Viz. Per totam Noctem Laborantes, nihil Cepimus, which he

                  has now by Him, and to induce him the sd Killuck to think, it

                  might be onely fit to be made away with before he saw him,

                  he used the Expression (if it be not Condemned, to Lower

                  Germany) and tht the meaning of the Question, in the sd

                  Letter viz, was it not to stop my Mouth from the like forseen

                  request, was that the Deponent mistrusted, the said Killuck

                  had rather a designe to Stop the Examinants Mouth from

                  asking to see one of the sd Killucks Sermons, than that the

                  sd Killuck had any reall designe, to see the Deponents; And

                  that the Latin Phrase evinces the Deponents Comparing him

                  selfe with a Young Novice, fitter to gain Experience from a

                  more Skilful Person.

                   As to the second Paragraph where mention is made of Mr

                  James Carroll's liberality, the Depont meant an Offer made

                  by the sd James Carroll, to Mr Killuck, of a Tract of about

                  three hundred Acres in Baltemore County, to him or any

                  other Preist of the Romish Communion, that would go Settle

                  and live thereon.

                   And that by the Expression, why shou'd we not Strike

                  while the Iron is hot, He meant he did not know how long

                  the said Mr Carroll, might be of that opinion, or they have

                  the like Offer from him or any body else. As to the Words
