Pratt v. Railway Company, 95 U.S. 43 (1877)

Pratt v. Railway Company

95 U.S. 43


1. The liability of an intermediate common carrier for the safety of goods delivered to him for carriage is discharged by their delivery to and acceptance by a succeeding carrier or his authorized agent.

2. If there is an agreement between two persons, occupying the relative positions of intermediate and succeeding carrier, that property intended for transportation by the latter may be deposited at a particular place without express notice to him, such deposit amounts to notice, and is a delivery.

3. The acceptance by the succeeding carrier is complete and his liability fixed whenever the property thus, with his assent, comes into his possession.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
