Davison v. Von Lingen, 113 U.S. 40 (1885), was a United States Supreme Court case.

On 1 August 1879, a charter-party was entered into between the owners of the steam-ship Whickham and the firm of A. Schumacher & Co., composed of George A. Von Lingen, Carl A. Von Lingen, and William G. Atkinson.[1] The ship was expected to leave Béni Saf in time to reach Philadelphia by August but left later than expected so that the arrival was pushed back to September so the firm hired a different boat.


The contract was broken when the vessel was found not to have left on time.
