      Pages 229-230. Jane Burton deposition: When I lived with Mr. Green, Green charged me to give the hoggs corne when theymcame neare the house not telling me what marke they were calling them his owne and I could no disprove him, Goeing one day from home with Mr. Todd, calling Fredrick Grimshaw verry earnestly saying to him bring some corne for heer is my great hogg. Fredrick goeing speedily out and was gonn the space of halfe an houre. Returning home againe I asked of him what was the matter. Grimshaw said, this foolish man, I see noe hoggs nor nothing like hoggs within 3 dayes. After came a great company of hoggs to Greene his house. Fredrick and Green being both at home taking corne with them did penn in these hoggs and tould them into the orchard through the henn house, being the corne feild and when they had donn they made up the doore with two board so that noe great hoggs could come forth for the space of 3 or 4 dayes or a weake. Then Grimshaw did take downe the boards and the hoggs made no hast to goe away. Green did ask of me how much corne would make 1/2 a dozen or 8 hoggs fatt for I doe intend to make them into good bacon to carry to sea with me. Then came the sloope men fromthe Eastern Shore and went in with planke to Mr. Storke s and did return back to Mr. Greene makeing greate complaint for victualls, saying they had bin 16 dayes from home more than there expectation. Mr. Ja: Green being you are acquainted with my specciall freind Mr. Wm. White I will furnish owith what I cann of proke for I have good hoggs in the orchard, But I am not well for this Fredrick cannott shoote but if you can shoote downe with one tonight, this was in the twylight of the evening. Then replyed Jno: Anderson the sloope man yes, that we will and give you thankes and make you sattisfaction. Noe, said Green, I require noe sattisfaction. Then Fredrick and Jno: Anderson went into the orchard and wounded a hogg and lost him for that night and came into the house. Then said James Greene, it is noe matter, we will doe what wee cann tonight and in the morning doe you and Jno: Anderson goe and see for the hogg and if you cannott find him kill another and in the killing of the other the hogg which they had wounded before made his appearance from out of the place where he was and they killed them both, but Ja: Green was not at home but Green had left order with Fredrick what he should give the sloope man and one of the hoggs heads was dressed for breakfast and the other the sloope man carried on board with him after it was given him by Fredrick Grimshaw by order of Greene. Soe suddenly after Greene kept folly feasting and I seeing that did ask him what he did meane to doe and his answer was that he was merry when he came to the house and would be merry when he went away. Truly said James Green, if you know what you did or how you came by your things you would not doe as you doe, to feast them that cannot feast you againe, neither aford you a good word. Then Greene brake forth in extreame passion and said I did grudge him his own victualls and all his friends and passionates said that I should not remain in his house to see any thing that he did. And thereuppon I went away the Sunday following soe forgetting my busk [?] in his buttery. I cam for it. He bid me take it and followed me into the buttery and there was three flitches of bacon in salt. Then said I, Mr. Green you have killed more hoggssince I was heere. Yes, said Greene, I have killed two and they were
      verry good bacon.
