person: William Bale
formerly Thomas and Agnes Dalston
London, St. Botulph without Aldgate, 2 years
Witness for Plaintiff in
Agnes Dalston alias Boste
Testifies that he was present at Thomas Dalston`s deathbed, and heard when Dalston bequeathed both to Maliber and to the witness, also an apprentice, a legacy to be paid if they served out their terms. Six months after Dalston`s death, the witness agreed to intercede with Agnes on Maliber`s behalf, that Maliber would receive his apprenticeship indenture in return for renouncing his legacy. He was not present when Agnes handed them over but he heard about it; he was present when they reached an agreement about the issue.
