PROTEST to PURSER

PROTEST

PROTEST, an instrument, drawn up in writing; and attested before a justice of peace, by the master and a part of the ship's crew after the expiration of a voyage, describing the severity of the said voyage, occasioned by tempestuous weather, heavy seas, an insufficient crew, or any other circumstances by which the ship has suffered, or may suffer, either in her hull, masts, rigging, or cargo. It is chiefly intended to shew, that such damages or misfortunes did not happen through any neglect or ill conduct of the master or his officers.
