A bill of lading may be transferred to an agent merely for purposes of convenience, to enable him to deal with the goods specified in it on behalf of the owner, as, for example, where he is authorised to take delivery of them1, or to stop them in transit2. In this case no property in the goods passes to the agent as holder of the bill of lading by reason of the transfer of the bill of lading, as the transfer is not intended to have that effect
