In view of the principle that the words 'shipped in good order and condition' do not import a warranty1, it is the practice of the master or person signing the bill of lading to qualify the statements as to the goods inserted in the bill of lading by adding some such phrase as 'weight, quality, quantity and contents unknown'2. Although, by signing the bill of lading, he admits that certain goods have been received by the ship, the effect of the qualification is that he declines to accept the particulars furnished to him by the shipper as correct3.
