Freight is sometimes applied to denote the compensation for the use of a ship, and sometimes, the compensation for the transportation of merchandise. The former happens, when there is a charter-party of affreightment, or, as is usually said, when the ship is let to freight. In this event, when the vessel is hired, so soon as the voyage is entered on, the right to freight commences. Let the ports of her destination be ever so numerous, if there is an entire freight for the performance of the whole voyage, there is an inchoatc right to the sum agreed on for freight, so soon as the ship breaks ground. From this moment, the hire of the ship is at risk, and constitutes a legal subject of insurance.

The voyage, though divisible, is not in charter-parties usually divided. There is one voyage, consisting of destinations to several ports, and terminating at the place from whence the ship originally set sail. For this voyage there is one freight due on its ultimate completion. This one freight is at risk so soon as the voyage has commenced; and an indemnity may be given against all the 108885 to which it may be exposed. Thompson v. Ta/glor, 6 Term Rep. 478. Liviizgston v.
