This Torts II exam, given by Professor William T. Muse on May 25, 1937, begins with this question:

Albert, the driver of a heavy horse-drawn van, left his horses standing un- hitched and unattended in a busy city street. Bert, a boy of ten, who was playing in the street, struck one of the horses with a stick, causing the team to run away. Cabot, a fireman off duty, seeing the horses and van running away, unsuccessfully tried to stop them and was seriously injured. Dora, standing inside of a department store looking through a large plate glass window, sees Cabot injured and the horses continue on their way. This causes excitement and anxiety on the part of Dora which two weeks later results in a miscarriage. What, if any, are the rights of Cabot? What, if any, are the rights of Dora?
