CARGO

mar. law. The entire load of a ship or other vessel. Abb.
on Sh. Index, h. t.; 1 Dall. 197; Merl. Rep. h. t.; 2 Gill & John. 136.
This term is usually applied to goods only, and does not include human beings.
1 Phill. Ins. 185; 4 Pick. 429. But in a more extensive and less technical
sense, it includes persons; thus we say a cargo of emigrants. See 7 Mann.
Gr. 729, 744.
