Before releasing her, he was given a bond signed by responsible persons that she would return within a certain period. On her failing to do so, however, he brings an action to recover damages occasioned by the extended trip, the vessel afterwards being sold for less than the face of the mortgage. Verdict for plaintiff for $1,848. Tried in Toronto.
