1. Manifest of cargo, certified and signed by the captain’s broker
•or agent at the port of loading. In case no broker or agent is employed,
the captain can make out his own manifest and sign it himself, but the
signature must then be certified by a Russian State or Elective
Consular Officer, or, failing such, by a notary public or some other authority
at the place of loading.

2. Bills of lading.

3. Ship’s declaration.

4. Bill of health.

5. Crew list.

6. Specification of all provisions on board, as well as of all ship’s
gear, anchors, chains, &c.

7. List of all articles and clothes, new and old, belonging to the
.captain and crew.

8. List of passengers, if any, and their luggage.

9. Articles and register.

If the register does not contain particulars as to the measurements
-of the ship, and also if it has not been rendered to the custom house
-officers, the measurements of the ship are taken by the custom house
officers, and the expenses are charged to the captain.

The absence of any of these documents will render the captain liable
to a fine.

If it be impossible to get the manifest and bills of lading (of which
documents there ought to be three copies) ready before the ship leaves
the port of loading, the necessary documents may be sent by post
after the ship’s departure.

Ships that fly the Russian flag, besides producing the enumerated
documents, must show their national flag-patent, master’s certificate,
and the passports of their crew.

Bills of lading must contain the names of the ship, of the captain,
and of the shippers of the cargo, the ports of loading and destination,
a description of the goods shipped, the gross weight of each parcel or
item ; all measures of capacity ; the number of packages ; the marks,
numbers, and addresses on such packages, and the captain’s signature.

Bills of lading are not necessary for (1) the personal property of
the captain or crew, or passengers’ luggage, (2) transit goods, and
(3) raw mineral products, such as chalk, alabaster, gypsum,
phosphorite, &c., shipped in bulk as ballast.

Manifests must contain (1) the number of bills of lading, (2) the
number of packages to each bill of lading, or, if the goods are shipped
in bulk, the number of parcels and a description and the approximate
weight of the goods, (3) the signature of the agent.

A manifest must be made out at each port where the ship takes
goods on board, and for each port of destination separately.1

Corrections, alterations, or endorsements, either of the bills of
lading or the manifest, must be countersigned by the ship’s agent, a
^shipbroker, or a police or customs official.

The ship’s declaration must contain : (1) description, name and
mationality of ship, (2) name of captain, (3) port of loading, (4) port
