237.     Cargo not as described in contract.

Where the goods tendered do not correspond with the description in the contract1, the shipowner may refuse them2. If the contract gives the charterer an option under which he may select the goods to be loaded, he may exercise that option as he thinks fit3; and, if the ship receives as large a quantity of the selected goods as she can take on board, the shipowner has no ground of complaint because a different selection would have enabled a larger cargo to be shipped4.
