Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1891, by
WILLIAM W. PORTER, in the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.
COLLINS PRINTING HOUSE,
705 Jayne Street.
This is believed to be the first American work on
the law relating to Bills of Lading. The subject has been touched upon in text books on kindred subjects, but is worthy of a more extended treatment.
The work of the author has been done in spare moments, in the midst of the pressure incident to active practice. This fact may serve to explain and excuse some of the defects which less interrupted labor might have excluded.
