- Bales of wool were taken on board at Buenos Ayres and were stowed in a temporary wooden bulkhead which wasn’t tight.
- The ship also took wet sugar.
- The wool was damage by the sugar drainage.
- The ship was seaworthy and the damage was caused by negligence of those in charge of the ship and cargo.
- The damage arose from negligence in loading or stowage for the cargo and not from fault or error in the navigation or management of the ship.
- There was no fault or defect in the vessel herself.
- The ship was seaworthy. The negligence consisted in stowing the wool far forward without taking care subsequently that no changes of loading should bring the ship down by the head.
- The ship and her owner must therefore answer for the damage.
